“You are not going to find the best candidate’s resumes floating online. You have to find them yourself. That’s where I come in.”

You’ve called your professional contacts. You’ve asked your current employees who they know. You posted your open position on the job boards and are still unable to fill that crucial need. Maybe you got close, wasting your team’s time by  pushing through the interview process only to lose your favorite candidates to issues like other offers, counter offers from their current employer, relocation or compensation.  Filling your open positions is not an easy task. If it was, you wouldn’t be reading this.

Your time is too valuable to waste with less experienced recruiters. My clients tell me they appreciate the speed and my efficient approach towards identifying qualified candidates and matching them with positions is more than just matching a handful of skill sets. Anyone with a subscription to one of the online resume databases can easily do that but that alone, will not get you where you need to go.

Sourcing top professionals for permanent or contract opportunities is a full time job. That’s why my client companies choose to partner with me. I deliver the needed value to their process by insuring they are not wasting time and in partnering with me on these searches, they end up with a better selection of stronger candidates.

You’re already short handed, right?  By allowing me to source candidates for you, you can maintain focus on your business and reduce the amount of time wasted interviewing candidates only to find out, they’re not the right one. I consider dozens of criteria on both sides of the coin; things like your long and short term goals, the challenges in line to reach those goals, location, time frames, culture fit and of course compensation.

How would you like to know more about the candidates you chose to interview before you ever call them? What would it mean to you if for each resume you look at, you knew their complete compensation history, current benefits information, relocation preferences and challenges,  what they described to me as their ideal position, their current compensation and the minimum amount they would need to actually resign their current position.

I suggest a short phone conversation to allow me to assess your needs.
