I knew I needed to hire someone to fill a vacant spot on my executive team, but I honestly did not know where I was going to find the time. We had the perfect team, but a tragedy struck unexpectedly and we lost one of our vice presidents to an accident. We were still grieving, but business does not stop for anything, even a sad affair. I just did not have it in me though to go through the entire hiring process, which is why I decided to look into an executive headhunter to help me.
I had never used one before personally, but I had been approached by some when I was working with another company before I formed my own. I know how they operate from those experiences, and I figured I would be able to trust a professional job recruiter to find me the right candidates. I wish I could have filled the position from within, but no one had the right qualifications that I needed, plus they were pretty big shoes that needed to be filled. I found a professional job recruitment company and was able to explain what I needed along with the time frame that I was able to work within.
I knew that this was not going to be filled overnight, nor did I want it to be. I wanted the people who would ultimately get interviewed be carefully sought out, and that is what this company did. They were able to provide me with three candidates who were willing to relocate if I decided to hire them. I had thrown in a relocation package into the offer, because the right person would definitely be worth it. This job recruitment is absolutely the best, because we would have been fine with any three of the ones we interviewed. We could only bring one on board, but I have no doubt the other two will find the right company too!
