Information for Your Job Hunt - Databases and Directories - Used by Resume Writers, Outplacement Firms, Career Coaches, College Career Centers, and Individuals Since 1987
Attention CXO - C-Level Executives: use our information to contact new and growing companies through their Venture Capital/PE investors.
Job hunters need to do many things to get a job - - call all their friends and relatives, answer ads, and send out hundreds, even thousands of letters and resumes in a targeted direct email, direct fax or direct snail mail campaign. Our databases and directories are designed to help you in that last task - to get your personal cover letter and resume to the Venture Capital/Private Equity firms that invest in your field.
Research has shown that between 1980 and 2005, virtually all net new jobs created in the U.S. were created by firms that were 5 years old or less. Senior executives use our Venture Capital/PE directories to reach new venture-backed companies that have the CXO positions they seek.
Use our directories to contact new and growing companies through their venture capital/PE investors. Our Directories of Venture Capital and Private Equity Firms are drawn from our database of more than 2,500 venture capital and private equity firms and 7,900+ key contacts.
Amazon Reviews: 5.0 out of 5 stars: Outstanding Reference for Job Seekers as well as Recruiters and Managers, November 20, 2013 – By Let’s Compare Options “Amazon Rocks” (Worldwide)

Custom Databanks has been selling headhunting (and many other) databases and lists since the 1980s. They are one of the most reputable data warehouses around.
Some of the web reviews that trash these directories as “just sales brochures for their lists” are not correct. They even state that CD removes contact info. These are both untrue! Don’t believe me, just use the wonderful Amazon/publisher look inside feature– full profiles and contact data is given. Now there ARE many more lists on their DBMS, including city by city cuts, etc. and you likely will want to actually buy some of these lists in your niche with the discount code you get with this purchase. But that’s certainly not necessary to get a lot of value from these pubs. This particular one focuses on jobs at 50K or better, but come on, that’s base entry level for programmers with even basic skills! “Big Data” starting salaries are now North of 120K at a lot of firms.
If you’re looking to change jobs or hire, obviously networking comes first, but this is a close second. I have nothing to do with this company, but have used them successfully to recruit in some VERY narrow niches like robotics and digital art programming. Their reps are really customer responsive, and mine even helped find an extremely specialized group of candidate recruiters in tutorial software. Highly recommended for candidates, IT managers and of course headhunters specializing in engineering and IT.
