Partnership Recruiting©: Most recruiters charge 20-25%. We charge you monthly for recruiter services. Think of us as contract recruiters.

As your talent partner where we get to know your company's growth needs and culture and create the right candidate funnel for it.  This typically works out far less depending on the time needed to recruit (5%) vs the traditional 20%.

Offering a reduced rate allows you the ability to attract higher-quality talent since you now have more in your budget that can be allocated to compensation.

Results: You can offer ways to attract better quality talent that will move mountains for your organization, such as higher signing bonuses.



We strategize using innovative methods to find high-quality candidates.

We have an extensive network of high-quality candidates both from Ascend5 and from our sister company, Career5 (brands and networks out people for new opportunities). We use multiple social media and marketing campaigns to quickly find, attract, and funnel high-quality people into your roles.

Results: We work on building your employer brand by adding consistency and multiple touchpoints in the recruitment process to build high-quality talent relations, becoming a truly reliable partner for your talent needs.

Candidate Value Scope

We use our Candidate Value Scope™ Matrix with each client to ensure your top needs are aligned with what they offer.

Sometimes quality candidates have up-to-date resumes and LinkedIn profiles, while others do not. We meet virtually with hiring managers to get an exact "wish list" to target candidates more accurately (leadership and/or technical abilities, track record, years of experience, etc.). By taking the time to screen candidates with this method, we send you a document that states exactly how they align with your needs.

This allows us to market for your exact talent and eliminate wasting time with candidates that do not meet your "must-have" criteria.

Why does this method work so well?

Our research has shown time and time again that by working together as an in-house partner, everyone wins.

"We started offering this service because the recruiting system is broken if you do not have in-house talent managers to hire.  Partnering up with a recruiting company that understands your company's culture and growth needs, creates continuity right when a candidate walks through your virtual door."  - Aimee Marcelo, Founder of Career5

Simple cost-effective and affordable solutions can quickly repair an eroded employer brand so that your company doesn't lose traction through the churn and burn of employee replacement.

Save thousands annually on hiring using a more effective recruiting system.


"This method of partnering up as a 'primary' recruiter for the company gets far more traction, eliminates the confusion, and gives us options as to whether we want to hire a recruiter to handle it or just have a funnel set up where we interviewed the screened candidates.  Either way, we are saving $5K-$20K per candidate-more if we just go with the funnel."- Matthew Fox,  Energy Fox Group in Colorado
