Sterling Founder and Chairman

“My association with Sterling Engineering has been a long and pleasant one. My experience with them will help my career grow in the future and and it was a pleasure to work with such amazing, intelligent engineers and administrative staff.”

- Change Management
Information Release Administrator

“In this market, a lot of recruiters don’t follow up or don’t really put forth effort in caring whether you get the next job or not. Sterling has some of the best recruiters I’ve worked with. They put me on a project that lasted even longer than they said it would. That is valued especially in the contractor world.”
