Why we are different

Higher education recruitment is our founding service market, and our bread & butter.  

Since our founding in 2007, Excelon has developed a proprietary search process utilizing several SaaS platforms through which we advertise, identify, inform, recruit, and then ultimately place top-tier education talent at your college or university. With offices in Chester, NJ, Boca Raton, FL, and Asheville, NC, Excelon has experience with both public and private colleges and universities as well as international trade schools and institutions. We are project based recruiters and everything we do is cloud-based and scalable from one to one-hundred jobs. We are a small firm that casts a wide net, and leaves a large footprint.
