Job Title

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

4 weeks

Did client have internal recruiting resources?


Why was this a real problem for the client?

They were seeking a very specific profile…someone out of school a few years that could come on board and develop with the company.  They didn’t want to afford an industry veteran and they also didn’t want to inherit any bad habits.  Their business was growing and they needed extra design support.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate was extremely ambitious. He was 3 years out of school and working for a smaller independent company where the size was limiting his development. He wanted to incorporate more variety, capabilities and have access to more resources as well. We found the employer the exact profile of what they were seeking and identified an opportunity for the candidate that had significant upside and growth potential. We got him a substantial raise and a chance to work next to 6 other packaging designers so he could continue to learn.
