  • for candidates

    Connecting you with the right opportunity at the right time.

    The best recruiters listen more than they talk.

    Is the timing right for you to make a job change? If you are taking interviews, how do you really know if a prospective employer’s culture is a fit? Is the position compelling? Is the salary competitive? What about the option for hybrid/flexible work, advancement opportunities, and work/life balance?


    For a career move to make sense, all of these things need to align.


    We want to learn about what’s important to YOU so we can bring you the right kinds of opportunities and, ultimately, make the right match.


    Get in touch. Even if timing isn't right for you to make a change, we're happy to talk about your career goals & interests and what's happening in the job market.

    You never know when opportunity will knock.

    Tim Walsh

    founder & managing partner

    Tim has been a recruiting leader in the Boston area for nearly 20 years. After making a career transition from marketing to recruiting in 2003, he began a run of eight consecutive years as the top-performing recruiter for a boutique search firm in Cambridge, MA. There, he placed top marketing, sales, product, analytics & professional services talent with software, ecommerce & marketing services companies, which remains his focus today.


    After co-founding ConnectedSearch in 2012 and overseeing revenue growth from zero to $2 million, he sold his practice and, after five years spent with two other specialty recruiting firms, launched Vetted in August 2020 with the goal of creating a more forward-thinking boutique recruitment firm, one that gives back in meaningful ways to the communities it serves while providing best-in-market talent acquisition services to some of the most interesting companies in Greater Boston.


    Tim lives in Arlington, MA, with his wife and two children. When he's not attending one of his son's baseball or hockey games, or daughter's theater or musical performances, he's probably listening to alternative rock (Buffalo Tom, Jade Bird, Courtney Barnett, Pearl Jam, & Veruca Salt are among favorites) or sports talk radio, avidly following the latest exploits of the Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins and, especially, Patriots.
