How We Place Leaders

Our executive recruiters put you first

Experience a Difference with Our Transparent Recruitment Process


Fed up with careless and inconsiderate recruiters wasting your time?

You’ve come to the right place.

Our recruiters believe that communication and courtesy are integral to a successful executive placement process. From the first email to the final congratulatory phone call, you can count on us to keep you informed at every stage of your transition.

Let’s get to know each other. Send us your resume and we’ll share the most exciting leadership opportunities that match your career path.

After our executive recruiters review your resume, we’ll schedule an interview to learn where you’ve been and where you want to go.

At this point in the process, it’s all about you. What do you love? What do you hate? What makes you get out of bed each day?

Don’t expect a sales pitch! Nor will we waste your time talking about off-base opportunities.

If one of our hiring partners has an opportunity that matches your career goals, you’ll be the first to know. Likewise, we tell you up-front if we don’t have a role that meets your needs, keeping your career moves on track.

Once we’ve determined that your goals and experience sync with our partner’s hiring needs, we’ll use a combination of conversations, questionnaires and depending on the client’s requirement, assessments. The comprehensive Candidate Packet highlights your strengths and communicates your potential impact in your next role.

We develop the Candidate Packet together and request permission before we release it to any hiring partner.

Please be prepared to provide three professional references at this stage.

Following your approval of the Candidate Packet, we present it to our hiring partner.

Now is the time to take a brief breath. As quickly as possible, we’ll communicate our hiring partner’s feedback to you.

When an employer expresses interest in your candidacy, we’re with you at every step of the exciting journey.

Our recruiters help you prepare for your interview. We arrange times, dates, and places. And we advocate for you throughout the entire recruitment process.
