Our Differentiation

We use a technology forward approach, triangulating data from multiple sources, mining candidate data, and building unique target lists of 50 – 250 candidates for each search that we take on.  Our approach involves deep data mining of information found on sites such as CrunchBase, LinkedIn, Twitter, TechCrunch, industry blogs, conference listings, publications, SEC filings, patents, and any nugget of information that Google search allows us to identify.

We leverage digital communications to quickly communicate to our target list and introduce potential candidates to our client’s opportunity.  We understand the response rates to each form of communication – e.g. LinkedIn InMail, personal email, corporate email, etc. – and we consistently receive an overall response rate of 20% -- 40% from our target list.

Once candidates are identified, we then turn back to the traditional means of recruiting potential candidates.  We talk to them live.  We get to know them.  We gain referrals.  We make more calls.  We present qualified individuals to our clients.  We work with both candidates and clients to make a match.  We are detailed oriented recruiters who are hands-on in every part of the search process.
