How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

1 week

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

Yes, they have a Human Resources team that post job advertisements.

Why was this a real problem for the client?

Our client has several Sales Representatives retiring and needed to hire an aggressive group of Sales Representatives to prospect and prepare for those retirements. Given the recruiting market is tight, they had no luck attracting candidates through traditional means of recruiting like job advertisements.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate who was placed was fairly stagnant in his role and was doing quite well but earning very little commission given their compensation structure. He was earning a bonus on growth. This gave him an opportunity to maximize his income but also learn from a very talented sales director that would accelerate his growth.
