Sean Zetts

Sr. Recruiter & President

After a decade of leading a search practice for another recruiting agency, I established Riverside Recruiting to focus on speed, quality and service. "Riverside" is a reference to the Cuyahoga River as I wanted the company name to have a connection to Northeast Ohio. The name is also fitting because my family likes to bike & hike along the Cuyahoga River/Valley, so we're often "riverside" on the weekends.


Perfect Fit

After months on our own looking for the right candidate, Sean presented us with the perfect fit within days on a hard to fill software development position.  

- Christian Vogeler, Vice President


Sean saved us time and frustration with his thorough candidate screenings and analysis. There is no comparison in his quality of work when he filled multiple positions.  

- Chris Raffle, VP of Technical Support 


Sean is a step above in customer service matched with the ability to source quality candidates. I certainly recommend him if you seek IT resources for your company.  

- Drew Auman, Director of Managed Services


Sean is an extremely helpful and thoughtful individual. He asks the best questions and considers any requirements you have when matching you with a new job. 

 - Sara DeJaneiro, Web Developer 


Sean was able to place me quickly at a fantastic company in a position I really enjoy. No other recruiter provided the level of service that Sean provided.

- Anthony Turk, Systems Engineer


I was surprised at how easily Sean connected me with 2-3 good fits after he discerned my criteria. Sean made job hunting efficient & painless, which led to the best opportunity.

- Nathan Wise, Sr. Software Engineer

Employers:  Are you not seeing enough candidates for your open position? Are you wasting time interviewing unqualified candidates? I'm networked with highly qualified professionals that are passive (not searching for a new job; they won't see your job posting) but open to learning about opportunities that meet predetermined criteria. Are you only interested in candidates who happen to see your posting? Or are you also receptive to candidates that may be more qualified than the active marketplace? 

Hire the best; people are what make a company great!

Candidates:  I follow Stephen Covey's principle of "Seek first to understand, then to be understood."  My process strives to understand your interests, motivations, criteria, likes/dislikes about your current position, main reason why you could consider a job change, the ideal opportunity, etc. This unique approach often results in a customized new position.

Don't let the perfect opportunity float by.  Most people I contact aren't actively looking for a new job, but they're often open to learning about new opportunities to see if the new opportunity might be better than their current situation.  Your next opportunity could make a big difference when it comes to work-life balance, flex-time, work-from-home, challenge, advancement, newer technology, better / less expensive benefits, employee appreciation, company culture, stability, travel, co-workers or compensation.
