Who is GuruLink?

GuruLink is an recruitment solutions and services provider, with a focus on the technology market. We develop long-term relationships with our clients, while providing excellent career opportunities for our network of Gurus – our candidates. Through personalized connections with our trained recruiters, we assess your skills and qualifications and really get to know your needs. We then connect you with great opportunities, with a view to the fact that it’s always good to be informed about what the market is like and often the best opportunities are found when you are already reasonably happy with your current job. We strive to be your trusted advisor and strategic business partner.


Is there a charge for any full-time or contract placements for me?

There is no charge to our candidates for career placement services. There is a common misconception that recruiters fees are paid via you getting a reduced compensation. That is definitively not the case. Our clients are looking for the best talent, who in many cases are in other jobs they are reasonably happy with. To secure top talent companies have to pay in line with candidate compensation expectations or they simply won’t secure the talent.

“I was very impressed by GuruLink.

Gavin and Paige were able to find opportunities that aligned with my personal interests for companies that are at the forefront of new technologies and industries. The process was very quick and guidance was given every step of the way. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a job.”

“Having applied to many jobs individually

and feeling like I was getting lost in a pile of resumes, GuruLink did the legwork of presenting my skills and experience to the employer for me and helped get me the IT job that I’ve always wanted. They have educated me on the company, prepared me for who I’d be interviewing with, what questions might be asked. They gave me the confidence I needed to go in and rock the interviews, and now the job. In a booming IT job market that can be hard to find valuable and interesting work, GuruLink found the job that’s right for me, at the salary that I wanted.”

– Dany/Candidate

“I would like to say thank you

Julia and Jibran for the great opportunity that they gave me. As a newcomer to Canada, I wasn’t expecting to get the same job that I have before in my home country. I am unfamiliar with the recruiting process here, and I always hear that we need ‘Canadian Experience’ even if it means taking a job not related to your previous occupation or education. But with the guidance and help of awesome recruiters like Julia and Jibran, I was able to get a job well suited to my qualifications and more than expected compensation. I am very grateful to both of them, and I hope that they can help more newcomers like me to have a great job in Canada and start a new chapter in their lives.”
