Many businesses have challenges to keep up with competitors through using information technology, but to keep their IT systems up to speed they need IT specialists to work for them. That’s where John Goullet comes in as the man that is working to help these companies find IT specialists, and just as importantly helping people entering the IT field find jobs. John Goullet is the Executive Principal of Diversant LLC, an IT staffing firm based in Newark, NJ. As Executive Principal, Goullet researches and finds solutions for the company to meet client demands and tackle challenges that come with changing times in the IT world. Diversant not only matches jobseekers with positions and companies that meet their strengths and qualifications, but they also provide tuition reimbursement and employee benefits as part of their company service.
John Goullet has seen the changes in IT staffing and consulting all through his career. He graduated from Ursinus College over 30 years ago and began as a consultant for various tech companies such as Computer Sciences Corp, 3D Information Services and TSR Consulting. As his career continued he began to shift his focus from solving computer problems and advising clients on IT issues to marketing and staffing for those companies. Eventually he decided to start his own independent staffing company and in 1994 he founded Info Technologies. Info Technologies made a lot of inroads with fortune 500 companies and grew from concept to $30 million in just 5 years. Info Technologies has also been featured in Inc. Magazine’s fastest-growing companies list.
Goullet decided to reach out to more IT jobseekers and combine his resources with his friend Gene Waddy’s company, so in 2010 Info Technologies became Diversant, LLC. The company soon started opening other offices across the US in states like California, North Carolina and Texas. Diversant also began partnering with local business organizations and technology initiatives such as the New Jersey Tech Council, and the New York & New Jersey Minority Supplier Development Council. They also support the Harlem Business Alliance, the Congressional Black Caucus and PACE Monmouth as part of their philanthropy.
