How we help you find the talent you need

Your search will involve a refined process whereby we dedicate 100% of our Account Executive and Project Coordinator staff’s time to rapidly identify multiple candidates for your specific requirement.  We make sure they are motivated and committed to move through the recruitment process and not waste your time.

We start with your specific experience and skills requirements, but what makes us different, is our unique ability to assess the attributes of a candidate.  Attributes are the building blocks of superstars.  These are the individuals that can build you a great organization.  They are Winners. We look for these five major attributes in every candidate:

  • Grit
  • Mental Acuity
  • Drive
  • Leadership
  • Teamability

WARNING:  We choose not to work with organizations who do not appreciate the value and importance of attributes.  Why?  Because people are usually hired for “what” they’ve done, but are fired for “who” they are.
