I have been Recruiting since the early 90's. I cut my teeth in a Retainer Recruiting Firm doing Programming/software Searches for Cobol and C++ types. Prior to that I worked for a number of years at a Market Research Firm- Prior to that US NAVY with F/A 18 Fighter Squadron. (Go NAVY!- beat Army!)
We primarily do Retainer Recruiting with some contingency work sprinkled in.
We Recruit for a myriad of Industries, with an emphasis as of late in Advance Materials in the Aerospace arena- e.g. High end Composite materials and processes like VARTM, RTM, RFI etc.- (Lockheed- Boeing, Vought, Cessna, Bell Helicopter, and most other big OEMS use these products /materials.)
Other industries worked include: Banking/Software, Medical, Automotive, Chemical, Food, CPG, Retail, Software, etc. - etc.- I have worked many more unique jobs and niche industries, way too many to list comprehensively.
The level of individual we recruit for or have recruited ranges from the Production Supervisor up to the CEO level. (E.g. Manufacturing, Quality, Sales, Research and Development, Engineering, Finance, Human Resources, Program Managers, Project Engineers, New Business Development, Account Managers, Product Development, programs, CAD, Tool Engineers, Cost Estimators, Purchasing, Six Sigma, etc.- etc.
My staff besides Recruiters includes research personnel with expertise in sourcing techniques and industry/technology research. We have a comprehensive database with 30,000 + prospects. This database is keyword searchable. We keep detailed notes on each and every call we make.
We have done Market Research Surveys from some clients to determine things like name recognition, salary surveys, benefit competitiveness, etc.
We have also done projects for other Recruiting Firms who do not have a level of expertise in a new Industry or Niche. Things like; Industry / Association Research (we can tell them what companies to Target) - name gathering, (Sourcing & Title validation) Resume Screening, relocation analysis, and in some cases closing.
