Q: Share a recent client success story.
A: One of my great candidates referred her recently laid-off friend to me. The referral was an outstanding candidate, just like her friend. During our interview, she asked me how quickly I thought I could place her. I explained that it is difficult to predict how long or short her search may be because of all of the variables, like which positions would become available, would her skills and experience match the requirements of those positions and how fast did the client want to move on hiring someone. The day we met, I sent her resume to a client who agreed to meet her the next day. One week and three interviews later, the candidate had an attractive offer for a position we did not even know was open. She interviewed for an administrative assistant opening and received a recruiting coordinator position. This business is always interesting and exciting.
