Job Title

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

Many months!

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

Yes, they have a Human Resources Manager and an internal recruiting team.

Why was this a real problem for the client?

Our client had a vacancy, due to a departure, and they needed someone that could lead their supervisors and hold them accountable.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate we placed was working for one of the integrated producers and had been passed-up for promotions several times. They hired externally rather than considering anyone that actually currently worked at the plant. On his wish list was: a step up in title, a first-shift opportunity and a chance to get back to Wisconsin. Our client delivered on all 3!
