Your most effective relationship with a recruiter is realized when they become a true extension of you, your department and your company. Since they are the front line of communication between you and the market, you will get the best results when your recruiter understands the “Why?” behind the “What” that you are looking for and can act as a true partner in overcoming common challenges that hiring managers face.
Avoid starting off on the wrong foot on the new position you are hiring for. Make sure you are focusing on the work you NEED to be performed versus what you WANT to see on the resume.
Would you like your hiring success rate to increase 50%? Focus on what you want accomplished and steer clear of any vague questions.
It’s much easier to conduct a search when you have a solid understanding of what you can get at what price. Even better if you’re aware how your company and opportunity compares to others.

I gladly recommend Tim as an excellent recruiter of finance and accounting professionals. Tim takes the time to get to know hiring managers, company culture and key details of position openings so that he can recommend the best candidates. He is then selective in the candidates put forth for consideration. Tim is responsive though deliberate in finding highly qualified candidates to fill even the toughest position openings.

I had the pleasure of working with Angie for about 16-18 months on a wide variety of IT roles for Weatherford. She always offered sound candidates, expert guidance, and honest feedback. More than this though – Angie has a fierce drive that she is going to do whatever it takes to deliver the right candidates for the right needs at the right time. Simply put – she has the guts to deliver where most will fall.
