Straight Talk for the Recruiting Profession


Logan Bragg

For more than thirteen years, Logan Bragg has had the pleasure of building and developing recruiting firms from the ground up. In 1998, after four years of unsuccessful attempts at product sales, Logan landed his first gig in the IT recruiting world and knew from the beginning it was his calling. In 2009 he sold his first IT staffing business, a firm where he hired and managed a team of recruiters, built and refined a recruiting process, and managed the day-to-day of three offices, seventeen internal employees, and over 80 consultants. That firm was a 2008 Inc 5000 nominee for Fastest Growing Private Companies in the United States. In 2009, Logan started his latest venture, Triumph Services, another IT Staffing and Consulting firm. With the help of his business partner of ten years, their goal is to once again be the trusted partner to clients that need and expect the best IT Talent around. Triumph will do this by providing value, being ethical, and following a proven recruiting methodology that ensures quality candidates and hires. Logan speaks regularly at job fairs, career seminars, and blogs about his experience and recruitment training. Logan lives in Richmond, VA with his wife and two daughters. He has a B.S. in Communications with a concentration in Journalism and a Minor in Psychology from Radford University.

Failure Precedes Success: How I Got Into Recruiting



Failure to success

This year will mark my fourteenth year in the staffing business.  They say time flies when you are having fun, and I feel lucky to be able to make a living helping people find rewarding opportunities.  But had it not been for some wise advice from my father, and a recruiter I never met in person, I may have never landed in this business.

It all started after I graduated from college in 1994. Almost all of my friends immediately jumped into outside sales. I had a degree in Communications and Journalism, so while I was not sure if sales was for me, I knew one thing – I wanted to be successful.
