About Me

My name is Haryo Utomo Suryosumarto. I combined over 18 years of professional experience in law practice, business development, general management, and applied psychology to start my independent recruitment consulting service in May 2009.

After successfully managed to close numerous important executive search assignments as a solo recruiter, I decided to incorporate my consulting work, and it was the time when PT Headhunter Indonesia officially established in May 2010.

My expertise is in senior-level executive search, advising clients on the strategic talent acquisition strategy and workforce administration best practices in Indonesia. I have worked as the consultant for Fortune 500 companies, international NGOs, start-ups, foreign investors, public listed companies in various countries and I also have a significant number of local companies throughout Indonesia in my client’s portfolio.

My other passion is knowledge sharing since I regularly invited to speak at the various career-related workshop in universities and corporate environments. Many of my articles and expert opinions have been published and quoted by multiple leading national media, such as: Fortune Indonesia, Bloomberg Businessweek, Femina Magazine, Koran Tempo, Forum Manajemen Prasetiya Mulya, Harian Seputar Indonesia, GoGirl Magazine,, Media Indonesia, Human Capital Magazine, Trijaya FM Jakarta (now Sindo Trijaya Radio), and many others.

From April 2011 until December 2014, I shared my expert views on various career topics for almost every week on Monday on the “Good Morning Hard Rockers Show” at 87.8 Hard Rock FM Bali.

About My Blog

About My BlogBlogging is kind of a “forgotten” activity for me. I started to create my blog back in April 2005 at, and then I tried to use WordPress. But as time goes by, I rarely had any time to update my beloved old blogs again.

I believe blogging is a delightful experience if only we wrote something that we passionate about it. That’s why I create this blog using my last name as the domain name to write and share everything I know about recruitment, career, job hunting, and also headhunting.

If I write in Bahasa Indonesia, it doesn’t mean that Indonesian people are that bad in English, not at all! The most important thing for me is sharing my knowledge in the easiest understandable way for almost everyone, from fresh graduates with no work experience to veteran professionals with over 20 years of work experience.

Hopefully, you could get something valuable from what I share here in this blog.
