Proven Sales Search & Recruitment Process


Recruiting Sales Professionals

With more than 10 years of search experience, we understand how to attract, recruit and deliver exceptional sales talent at the staff, management, and executive levels. Our sales recruitment model relies heavily on outbound recruitment systems to drive engagement with passive candidates.

Simply stated, we don't wait around for the right candidates to notice us. We actively recruit highly-target sales professionals for your sales openings.

With specialization in the software industry and sales function; our search method aims to deliver on-target results with speed. We offer our clients the best of both worlds: highly-targeted candidates and rapid results.

When we take on a sales search, you can expect to:

  • Cut wasted interview time. We'll introduce you to sales candidates who match sales job requirements.
  • Meet the best talent in your market, not the best of who's applied. In short, you'll interview “passive” sales candidates.
  • Get rapid results. Need to hire yesterday? We get our clients Rapid Results.
  • Meet more than one obvious "best candidate." We focus on increasing quality candidate selection so we can put the hiring odds in your favor.
  • Receive weekly updates on search progress so you stay "in the-know."
  • Have candid conversations. You'll avoid stalled hiring timelines and missed deadlines. For instance, if a candidate you're interested in isn't interested in you, we'll tell you what we know from experience. We don't participate in blind optimism, ignore painful truths, or remain hopeful when candidate behavior points to the contrary. We don't let our clients time go up in smoke with counter offers and offer turn-downs.
  • Discuss and go. Battle-tested. No training required. You'll get a hands-on, experienced recruiter who leads every part of the search process. We've already made all the rookie recruiting mistakes.

 What's our proven formula for success?

  • We make it easy for our clients to interview sales talent quickly. This is one of the most powerful benefits of specialization.
  • Unlike generalist recruitment firms, we specialize in the sales function for software sales talent. Period. This means we already know what "good" looks like. Chances are we've done a very similar search recently.
  • Commitment to follow-up and follow-through. We'll do our best to see your search through to a successful conclusion.
  • Expertise in asking the right questions to vet the information we need. Sales recruiting can be tricky for many reasons. We've discovered how to avoid many of the usual recruitment pitfalls. Our clients leverage this experience to make better hiring decisions so they can scale faster and get more out of every senior level hire they make.
  • Focused, proven approach to identifying specialized sales talent.
  • Our experience in the business virtually eliminates false starts, counter offers, and other unwelcome "surprises."
