The Hidden Job Market

Waiting for a recruiter to find you a role is like waiting for the right opportunity to show up on your doorstep. First, they are working for companies, not you. Second, external recruiters get paid 20% of your salary which decreases your ability to negotiate higher. 

The average job search takes 3- 6 months using the traditional application route. Our method cuts this in 1/2 by proactively looking for work in the hidden job market and applying effectively. By paying monthly, you only pay for what you need and both parties are invested in this process. Go enjoy your day while we look for your new role!

"It's a 1-on-1 job search coaching and accountability program that has been fuel-injected with a discrete networking campaign and you even apply? Brilliant! Exactly what I need. I am swamped right now." - Mark F., SVP of Strategic Partnerships. Landed a new role in 2 1/2 months at the $350K Level.

"I got a LinkedIn response from our reverse recruiting campaign that might actually turn into something good! It's for a new regional health company in California - talked to the CFO this morning; talking to the CEO this afternoon. My spidey sense tells me this is the job for me - it's a better fit than the current company I am interviewing with. Cheers, Julie (executive leader)" (December 2023)

Why is an authentic personal brand important?
Resume Writing

Presentations-Professional branding

Ultimately, your brand is your legacy. It is the way you are known today and how you will be remembered when you leave.  It reflects who you are, which is more important than what you do. Your legacy is the most realistic representation of how you lived, behaved, and interacted with others, and how they felt about you. We work with all of our clients to build authentic brands!

"More than half of employers won't hire potential candidates without some sort of online presence today." - Career Builder
