After 12 years in high tech sales and management jobs, Colleen Aylward took a temporary job as a recruiter, eager to get her hands on the magic list of job openings so she could place herself in one of them. What she soon discovered is that headhunting doesn't work that way. Recruiters don't place people. They work for employers. Even back then, it was a job of painstaking research and discovery, day after day.. Two years later, she started her own retained search firm, Devon James Associates, in the Seattle area, and for the past 18 years has led a disruptive charge to challenge the fifty-year-old traditions of the executive search business. Aggressive ideas landed her on the pages of Fast Company, Barron's, SmartMoney, Forbes, Wall Street Journal, and her client list includes many of the Who's Who companies in the Northwest, including Amazon, Visio, Microsoft, Cranium, and Brocade.
