The zengig mission

Empower and enable individuals to maximize their career potential by providing the most comprehensive platform of resources, tools, guidance, and advice for every professional journey.

Our story

Zengig is a new brand with a long history of helping job seekers achieve their goals.

Our founder, Pete Newsome, first started working as a recruiter in 1993 before opening his own firm, 4 Corner Resources, in 2005. The company was created to change the staffing industry by operating at a personal, intimate level with clients and candidates alike. Consistently throughout the years, 4 Corner has been independently rated as the top staffing firm in Central Florida while receiving national recognition from Inc Magazine, Forbes, and the Business Journal.

In 2017, somewhat by accident, Pete and the team at 4 Corner realized there was an alarming shortage on the internet of reliable, high-quality career advice and guidance. Wanting to share the knowledge and expertise gained by helping more than 10,000 job seekers find new career homes, they began creating a wide variety of content for corporate HR professionals, hiring managers, recruiters, and job seekers, but realized along the way the most popular articles were those that provided career-related insight to candidates and employees in various stages of their careers. It caught their attention in a significant way, and as they dug deeper it became clear that a large void exists when it comes to comprehensive, reliable, and accurate advice on any and all things job or career-related.

The realization was a lightbulb moment, as the vision of doing business in a personal way was suddenly able to take on an entirely new and deeper meaning. Leveraging more than a century of recruiting, HR, and business experience, our mission for zengig became crystal clear.
