About Us

Mike Barthel parlayed his background as a Talent Acquisition Specialist within a couple of major Fortune 500 companies into founding In Search of Energy in 2008. ISOE makes it a top priority to not only understand the technical fit of candidates but also the personal fit.

Getting to know the candidates motivators, drawbacks, location preferences, family structure and willingness to really make a job change, are factors that ISOE understand before submitting a candidate to your company to save you both time and money.

"When I reached out to other firms, I was constantly frustrated that these Search groups were always sending me great candidates on paper, but most were unattainable due to personal situations that made them impossible to hire. This lead to restarts and wasted my company's time. They sent me candidates that I could not have."

- Mike Barthel

Our place in the NERC compliance space is an inch thick, and a mile deep. What we mean by that is that we work a very specific space and have a very strong candidate database as a result of building deep relationships with our clients and candidates. We not only understand the technical fit but the interpersonal fit as well.
