The value of Professional Search and Recruiting

To help them build the effective leadership they need, many employers are now turning to executive search firms. dmDickason Professional Search brings value to our clients because our search consultants can bring your company specialty knowledge of the talent market within your industry. For companies looking for hard-to-find or high-caliber leadership in our increasingly tight labor market, utilizing a professional search firm may be the only way to go.

dmDickason’s specialty is to locate those hard-to-find candidates that are happily and gainfully employed and who generally do not surface from internet job boards, classified advertising, or other “traditional” recruiting efforts.

The anonymous nature of resume submission on the internet makes it more and more difficult to actually evaluate qualified talent. The sheer volume of responses to internet postings is overwhelming as job seekers often present themselves for consideration even when they are not qualified. Sifting through volumes of resumes is a time consuming process and evaluating resumes and matching talent to jobs is an acquired skill.

We deal in the marketplace everyday

Since 1965, with over four decades of experience, dmDickason Professional Search has been serving America’s finest companies and job candidates. Our success in presenting the right candidate for the job has not only attracted the best job candidates in the area, but has also helped us build and serve a local and national client company list of many world recognized corporations.

dmDickason’s Guarantee

No fit…..No fee! dmDickason Professional Search is a contingency recruiting and Staffing company. In other words, client employers are charged absolutely nothing until (and unless) you hire one of the candidates we refer. The substantial work that our Recruiters do on your behalf is done at our expense. Detailed searches almost always include many hours of time consuming and expensive recruiting efforts to locate the right person for the job.

We start with a complete understanding of what your company requires, and conclude with a new employee’s smooth transition into your place of business. Until that happens, your company is not charged a dime! Our service fee is earned only if a dmDickason candidate is hired by your company, and, the best guarantee of all; you make that decision, not us.

Following a successful placement of a qualified candidate, our Recruiters remain in touch with you to solidify the new employee / employer relationship. And, if the employment of the person hired by your company ends within 30 days of your new employee’s start date, replacement candidates can be provided at no additional charge. We aim to make placements permanent, and most of them are!
