Using an Executive Search Firm

07.27.11   |   Sales Recruiting   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

Why would a company use an executive search firm to find qualified candidates? Truth be told, an executive search firm is not always going to be the best bet for a company's search, it would be foolish to state otherwise. But, every company could find value in building a partnership with an executive search firm. Let's explore some of the challenges and benefits to working with a search firms. There are so many candidates out there - why would I pay a fee to find one? As recruiters, we know that there it is no great challenge to find candidates. Where we add value is in successfully finding the RIGHT candidates. We will partner with a company and find out the ins and outs of who they are looking for, who has been successful in the role in the past, and how we can replicate that success.

In today's social society, companies more than ever are being judged by their community. Whether it's the loyal customer that praises them for their business acumen or the disgruntled employee who left on bad terms, these opinions and reviews matter and can either positively or negatively effect a company's reputation. For instance, a hiring manager posts a job on their website for a Territory Sales Representative. A potential candidate sees the post on Indeed, clicks on the post and gathers more information about what the job entails.

5 Reasons Why Companies Should Use a Recruiter to Hire their Next Sales Professional

06.01.11   |   Sales Recruiting   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

The unemployment rate in America is hovering around 9%. But if you are a competent engineer, sales executive, online marketer or general manager in Silicon Valley, NYC, Boston, or other startup hotspots, the unemployment rate is 0%.

CNN recently reported that 40% of the 130,000 job openings in Silicon Valley are for software engineers. Senior executives have never been harder to secure. That's why, even though it flies in the face of conventional wisdom, I'm advocating that all my portfolio companies hire recruiters when they are trying to fill senior or key positions. Immediately.

In the week ended May 14, 409,000 Americans filed for their first week of unemployment benefits, the Labor Department said Thursday. That marked a decline of 29,000 from the 438,000 initial claims filed the week before, and was an even lower level than the 420,000 claims economists had expected for the week. The number of initial claims has fallen sharply for two straight weeks, after one-time adjustments related to schools on spring break severely distorted the number. Since then, initial claims have retraced those steep gains, falling back to levels they were at about a month ago.
