Frequently Asked Questions
What services do you provide to candidates?
I have access to several hundred openings nationwide. My
Jobs page is focused on healthcare roles; however, that's just a small portion of what is available to me. If you see something on the
Jobs page that may be a fit you're welcome to
email me or
schedule time to connect and discuss.
Alternatively, you can send me an
email (with or without a resume) letting me know what you're looking for and I can search from there. I'm also happy to jump on a call as a phone conversation can sometimes be easier.
I can review your resume and provide guidance in regards to revisions/additions/etc.; however, I don't offer full resume prep services.
Do you charge any fees to your candidates?
No, my fees are paid by the client(s) or organization(s) I support with recruiting and/or sourcing services.
What services do you provide to clients?
I offer both recruiting and sourcing support at two different pricing options, hourly or flat fee:
Hourly - This depends on the organization's size and the type of support needed (i.e., sourcing only, recommendations for where to post an opening, full life cycle recruiting).
Flat Fee - 10% of the role's annual salary (i.e., if the position will be making $50,000 per year, my fee would be $5,000).
Why aren't the names of the companies listed in the job postings?
Many companies don't allow independent recruiters or staffing agencies to list the name of their organization(s) in postings. Honestly, I have no idea why. However, I'm happy to provide the company name for any jobs that are of interest, just email me directly or reach out via my Contact form.
I'm a perfect fit for one of the openings! What happens now?
schedule a phone call or
email me directly to provide a few days/times of availability. During the call, we'll discuss your relevant experience specific to the opening, why you're looking to make a move from your current position, and determine if it would be a fit for both you and the organization. If everything is a go, I'll submit your resume and any notes I've taken to the company's hiring manager for review and feedback.
During the submission process, you're welcome to call or email me with any questions, or to check status, if you haven't heard from me within the time I've specified (typically I check in weekly). Please note that this is where things often lag as hiring managers can get busy and/or become unresponsive for a number of reasons. So my status may be that there is no status. But you are always welcome to reach out!
What are the benefits of using a recruiter in my job search?
There can be several benefits to using a recruiter:
We oftentimes have access to jobs that aren't posted publicly.
We may have a direct connection to the hiring manager and can bypass submission through a company's applicant tracking system. (Please note: If you continue through to further interviews for a role, or are extended an offer, you may need to submit your information through their system at that time for tracking purposes).
We might have background information in regards to the organization or team that is hiring that will help you make a decision as to whether or not a role would truly be a fit.
Can you guarantee you'll find me a job?
Matching candidates to roles is much more complicated than most people realize. Job postings can be vague, hiring managers may not truly understand what they need or are looking for a level of perfection no one can attain. On the flip side, candidates may feel they're a fit for something that is well above their skillset or knowledge level.
What a recruiter CAN do: assist in your search, offer recommendations, counsel on how best to present yourself in an interview, etc. They can also help initially "sell" you to a hiring manager. But candidates also need to do their own homework on a job, as well as the organization/company that has posted the opening in which they're interested. They need to develop their presentation skills when it comes to interviewing and have confidence in their own abilities to perform the job for which they are being considered. It's rarely ever a slam dunk.
