How popular is Jim?
I do executive search. With over 25 years of experience in the field, I work primarily with assignments that call for a high degree of interaction between recruiter and candidate before the client actually interviews in person. My clients are looking for the best, not the first candidate, and both identifying and enticing extraordinary talent requires considerable effort. Disciplines include operations for both single location and multi-unit positions, finance, human resources, labor relations, marketing, sales, and administration.
The fact is that my principal skills in recruiting are the ability to make friends with total strangers inside of 30 seconds, to ask incisive questions and obtain clear answers, and to correctly evaluate a candidate’s suitability for the assignment at hand. Clients find me reasonable, knowledgeable, thorough and very effective.
