Connor McKercher

Practice Leader: Paper & Flexible Packaging

Company Description

A manufacturer of corrugated industrial packaging and POP displays.

Job Title

Structural Designer

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

2 weeks

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

Yes, they have job advertisements as well as internal search processes.

Why was this a real problem for the client?

Our client is in the process of building a new state-of-the-art manufacturing site in Chicago, IL and needed to hire their first designer to spearhead the department.  The market is robust in terms of designers but not all were qualified for various reasons.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

Our client was seeking a role like this to put his stamp on and make it his own. He was seeking another challenge and being relatively green in his career, this would look very good on his resume and would set his future up well.
