After moving to the U.S. from England and beginning her career in the IT industry, Kinga saw a problem that needed to be fixed.
There was a disconnect between job seekers and employers, leading to a frustrating recruiting process and, worse, poor hires.
So in 1998, Kinga started her own search firm—Leaders IT Recruitment in Lincoln, Nebraska— to bridge the gap, and she hasn’t looked back since. The firm has grown organically through satisfied clients’ word-of-mouth referrals and blossomed into Insight Recruitment which, 20 years later, has worked with job candidates and businesses across the country by setting the bar for what a recruitment agency should be.
“We get our clients’ attention by giving them the clarity they need to make better decisions for themselves,” Kinga says. “We’ve helped candidates secure truly life-changing jobs, and we’ve made a massive impact on companies needing the right mix of people to ensure their success continues.”
Kinga sees the right qualities in applicants and the bottom line for businesses. She makes sure her small-but-mighty team keeps its eye on one thing above all else: follow through.
“Our tools, strategies and focus have evolved like any growing business, but our core values have not,” Kinga says. “We focus on quality, high-touch service from the start, and our passion shows. I’ve been lucky enough to hire people who align with Insight’s philosophy on service.”
It’s that partnership attitude that differentiates Insight from the crowd.
She moved into recruiting to take her career to the next level, and she draws on her experiences in customer service, hiring and teambuilding when she guides employers and candidates through the recruitment process.
“I enjoy being in the recruiting business because I like building relationships with people and learning about them,” Dani says. “As a recruiter, my ability to get to know people becomes an asset because I am able to not only learn what companies are looking for but also discern which candidates have the skills and personalities that will fit their needs.”
She gets a rush when candidates and employers go from being a match made in heaven to new colleagues. Dani’s done it time and time again by being attentive, consistent and positive with every client.
“I have the best job in the world,” she says. “I help people move closer to their dreams by finding a job that they love.”
Shawn’s greatest skill is finding out what makes people tick.
Ever since she earned her bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, she’s built a career around problem-solving. From lab work to marketing and now to recruiting, Shawn has a history of making connections and finding the right fit.
“I am always looking for opportunities to grow in my career, and this was a natural fit for me having worked as a scientist and as a product manager in a science-based business,” Shawn says. “I want to help others in my field grow, succeed and be fully engaged in the work they do because I know firsthand how important it is to feel like you are making a difference in the world.”
Shawn is particularly adept at coaching candidates on presentation skills and bringing out their technical expertise with polish and precision.
“I feel like presentations can make or break the interview, so I want my candidates to go into the interview feeling confident in their ability to present their data and showcase how they are a good fit for an organization,” she says.
Leah joined Insight Recruitment with 12 years of dedication to People and Culture, through a variety of roles that included start-ups, non-profits, education, healthcare and for-profit organizations. Her main driver in life is helping others.
“I began my career working in the Talent Assessment industry. Gaining in-depth knowledge on talent identification and consulting other organizations on how to select and develop talents while creating a culture individuals could thrive in. From there, I took the expertise I had gained and applied it in a traditional Human Resources Manager role. Now, as a Recruiter for Insight Recruitment, I am thrilled to leverage my experience to help people find their vocation and help other Human Resource professionals build their dream team of talented individuals who will make a positive impact on their organization and mission.” Leah says.
“Even though our goals in life may change, and our priorities and desires, there is always one constant for most of us: we all want to live a better life. That's where I come in!”

Having worked with more than 10 other recruiting agencies, Insight Recruitment scored the highest in quality of candidates and recruitment services, understanding our needs and value for money. Insight was responsive, provided good quality candidates and was easy to work with.
Insight gets the highest rating for quality of recruitment services, professionalism, customer service and response rate. Shawn is very responsive, she listens well, she is a great communicator and has given us the best sales candidates of any firm I’ve worked with.
In 20 years of working with and being hired through recruiters this was by far my best experience. Truly enjoyable and seamless.
It was a pleasure working with Insight Recruitment. Shawn was a real gem. Most recruiters do not have her level of active engagement and guidance. At every step you feel she is diligently working to advance your best interest—putting you in a position to actualize your goals.
It was the most flawless process. Shawn helped guide me the entire way. Giving me very good tips and down to earth help over the phone. Since I haven’t done this for over 16 years, the industry and things have changed. I relied heavily on her and her experience. I’m very grateful to her and those that work at Insight Recruitment. I want to thank you again Shawn. I was absolutely blown away by how helpful and kind you were. And I honestly thought your first email was spam or a junk email. I’m glad I responded.
