Each assignment is lead by a seasoned Search Consultant in every facet of the
search, from client orientation and position specification development, to designing
a search that is tailored to each client’s needs, to recruiting, assessing,
and negotiating with candidates. We develop collaborative and close working relationships
with our clients and stay with them every step of the way until the search is
complete and then continue a relationship with the candidate and the client company
for years to come
Since our firm’s inception we have been making a significant impact on
businesses, careers and the lives of others. We take these responsibilities seriously,
adhering to a strict code of professional ethics and handling our relationships
with clients, candidates and colleagues with discretion and great care.
We have one of the largest referral networks in the industry ensuring
quick access to the best candidates. We have a very large database of
candidates and contacts that has been created from our years of recruiting.
We also are part of a very select Recruiting Network with over 1,000
recruiters and immediate access to hundreds of thousands of recruited
candidates only a click away while maintaining client confidentiality.
This unique tool allows you a “One person contact” with
access to 100,000+ recruited candidates not available on Resume Banks. American
Career Search,Inc. uses numerous continuous advertising campaigns, databases
and other tools to include the largest directory of companies in the USA. With
our industry experienced and trained Search Consultants we are able to identify
top candidates for our clients in a short time period using these resources and
direct recruiting campaigns. We budget almost $100k annually on these resources
so you don’t have to.
