Hockenberg Search is a retained search firm. Many clients are surprised to learn that retained search fees are exactly the same as contingent search fees. However, retained search offers additional value and customer service to everyone in the search process. Although taking the do-it-yourself approach may initially appear more cost effective than bringing in retained search firms for your recruiting efforts, the reality is that using the skills of professionals is going to provide a better return on your investment. For example, you would not try to fix your computer network on your own; you would bring in IT specialists so everything would be done efficiently and correctly. Why, then, would you try to hire staff without the assistance of a group of experienced professionals? More companies are recognizing the benefits and are turning over more of these needs to retained search professionals. We consider ourselves your business partner-a true "extension" of your business. When you succeed, we succeed. That's because we build our business on relationships, rather than transactions. The better we understand your business and the culture that is uniquely yours, the better we can serve your business needs by finding you the right job candidates. Hockenberg Search takes the time to meet with your management team to understand your company culture, values and goals. Our face-to-face interactions enhance our ability to identify candidates who fit with you and will perform for you. We choose quality over quantity. Because we limit our engagements to no more than three at a time, you are always top of mind and at the top of our priority list. Your search does not get lost in the shuffle common to most large-volume firms. We continue to recruit until the right candidate accepts your job offer. As a generalist retained search firm, Hockenberg Search's broad reach into many markets gains access to the most qualified candidates in all job categories. We do not have the "hands off" conflicts faced by other recruiting firms who have too many clients in one niche industry. To find the most qualified person for our clients, we do not need to recruit from our other clients; a generalist approach assures that promise. Hockenberg Search doesn't wait for candidates to contact us, and we don't just passively search a candidate database. We proactively recruit employed, professional-level candidates for your unique search. Employed candidates are more receptive to confidentially meet with a retained search professional who is equipped with first-hand and accurate information about your career opportunity. As an reflection of your company, we treat all candidates with "old school" friendliness and professional courtesy throughout the entire search process. You are our valued client and we work hard to maintain good relationships in the business community with your best interest at heart. Hockenberg Searchguarantees successful search results. We present to you a limited slate of hirable candidates, accompanied with a detailed summary of each candidate. This careful process guarantees that you see the best of the best, not just a stack of resumes. Hockenberg Search represents hiring companies only, and we conduct your search on an exclusive and confidential basis.
