The quote on the right is from an
Applicant we worked with in December of 2004. He interviewed
for a position but it wasn't quite right for him. We let him
know the results of the interview. Later another Recruiter
called him about the same company but a different position. He
then called us to tell us about the position. We called our
client, got him in for an interview, and the position was absolutely
perfect for him.
We tell this story because it
illustrates our process well. We build relationships with our
clients and our applicants and they respect us. One Manager,
that was an applicant and later turned into a hiring Manager, told
one of our Partners that when we send a resume they interview the
candidate without hesitation. They do so because P&L
Strategies always sends the best candidates from a cultural as well
as a technical fit.
We know our clients, and we make every
attempt to know our applicants too. One of the first questions
we ask our applicants is "what is your ideal
position?". This is a key question as it tells us right
off the bat if we have a good fit for a long term relationship with
the client we are sending the applicant to. We ask many
more questions after this to get to know our applicants so we
can make matches that last.
