Resumes Are Just the First Step
Resumes do not paint the full picture of a candidate’s abilities, knowledge, experience, attitude, and work ethic.
Resumes, Truth or Fiction
Unfortunately, not all resumes paint a fair picture. Information provided on resumes often have embellishments, omissions and inaccurate facts.
Sorting out the real truth requires years of experience reading resumes.
A Candidate is More Than Words on a Resume
A person is more than what is written down on a piece of paper. It’s easy to list a set of skills on a resume. But how does that candidate use those skills, both in their work and in their work with others in the company? Resumes cannot establish a candidate’s personality as it relates to their work.
Learning to Read Resumes Takes Years of Experience
It takes years of reading resumes to gain the experience and ability to read between the lines.
Do resumes really reflect what the candidate is all about?

Over 20 years experience, with over 2,500 candidates placed, and many happy CEO’s.
Incredibly low fall out rate
I have an in incredibly low fall out rate because I spend the time with my hiring managers and my candidates to make sure they are the right fit.
I learn the corporate culture
I learn about the company from the top, down. I gets to know all the team members and executives in order to understand the culture of the organization. Culture is a very large component of the right fit.
Recruiting all disciplines in a company
I have recruited marketing, engineering, product development, accounting, social media, customer service, finance, customer service and C-suite candidates.
The Secret to Finding the Right Candidate
Work with Hiring Manager
The most important aspect of finding the right candidate is to take the time to understand what the Hiring Manager is looking for in the candidate. Often, I find that what the manager thinks they are looking for is not what they really need. I work with the managers to flush out and fine-tune what the job is and the type of person they need.
Defining the Skill Set
Working with the manager, I flushe out the skills, the priorities of the set and the level of experience needed.
Analyzing the Candidates skill set
In the initial interview process, I drill down on what the candidate’s skill set is to make sure they are 100% qualified for the position.
Evaluating style and personality
Working for a manager is like being married. It’s a partnership that has good and bad days. I look for candidates that will mesh and work well with their managers.
Drive to Succeed
Candidates need to exhibit the drive to succeed. Too many candidates just want a 9 – 5 job. I looks for candidates that are striving for success and who want to grow themselves and their companies.
