Honest Recruiting is a family-owned and operated boutique market research recruiting service based in Southern California.
Since our inception, we have successfully partnered with some of the largest marketing research firms and facilities in the nation, recruited for a wide variety of industries and markets. No matter your requirements, our team will recruit and manage your project with 100% effort every time.
Wonder how we chose our name? It was for two reasons:
- For our clients, it represents transparency — about what we can and cannot do and how hard we will work for you.
- For our participants — it reflects the fact that our clients need and value your honest opinions.
What’s the Honest Difference?
We consider ourselves as more than a recruiting firm. We’re a dedicated, hard-working team that believes in building strong and long-lasting relationships. We’re your partners in success, every step of the way.
Meet the Founders
Corey and Jamie Oswald, a married couple with two children, started Honest Recruiting to meld their strengths and build something for their family. They work tirelessly to operate a company they’re proud of, based on a foundation of honesty and integrity.
Corey Oswald — President
Prior to founding Honest Recruiting, Corey owned and managed a popular surfing and skateboarding lesson business in Los Angeles for 15 years. When he and his family had the chance to move to San Diego — a long-time dream — he sold that business, headed south, and started a new life.
Corey has the work ethic and dedication needed to create and sustain a company, but also brings the personality. His outgoing manner and friendly voice put clients and participants at ease.
In his free time, Corey loves to surf, standup paddle, skateboard, mountain bike, build furniture, paint, and garden; he basically does it all. He also loves hiking, traveling, and going to the beach with Jamie and their two young sons.
Jamie Oswald — Vice President/Senior Project Manager
Jamie joined Corey at Honest Recruiting a year after the company was founded. Before that, she worked in the apparel and accessories industry for over 20 years in project management, buying, production, merchandising, and sales.
Jamie brings the “organized” aspect to the company. She manages projects and makes sure everything is running smoothly for clients and participants.
In her free time, Jamie likes cooking, decorating, listening to podcasts, painting, traveling, spending time with friends and family, and going to the beach with Corey and their two young sons. The beach is her happy place!
