About the Author

Ken Peck graduated from the University of Toledo with an accounting degree in 1965 while developing skills part time in the rapidly growing field of information technology. He served as an auditor with the U.S. General Accounting Office for three years, and then made the switch to a full-time information technology professional. Over the next 15 years, he rose from programmer to chief information officer with banking and insurance organizations in the Midwest and California. He made another career advance to satisfy dual passions for owning his own business and information technology by founding his own recruiting firm specializing in Information Technology Professionals in Los Angeles in 1980. Shortly afterward, he launched BlackDog to create badly needed IT solutions for recruiters. Since 2000, he has devoted his career solely to making Gopher the ideal recruiter’s solution. Specialties: professional recruiting and recruiting software which includes applicant tracking systems; CRM; resume sourcing and mining; resume databases; and social networking tools and techniques for recruiters.
