Did client have internal recruiting resources?


Why was this a real problem for the client?

Due to their rural geographic location and an aging work force, they had some key vacancies in the facility.  In general, they had issues attracting candidates to the location.  Because of this, they were able to find qualified individuals but they didn’t have the packaging experience which was key.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

Our candidate was recently on the market due to a company downsizing when his organization was bought out. He had a very desirable skill-set with industry specific expertise. He had been interviewing but there were no urgent positions available just yet. The company realized how strong he was and offered him a position lower than he was qualified for with a competitive compensation plan. However, they created an aggressive career path which would allow him to be a true leader within the company.
