Are You Having a Hard Time …

Finding Quality Candidates

That Fit Salary Criteria with Industry Background?

You want to attract top talent to grow your company, but recruiting top talent is a full time job. Sifting through hundreds of resumes yourself is time consuming and overwhelming usually ending up with finding only one or two qualified candidates

Perhaps you're an HR executive and you’re already too busy travelling for work while juggling numerous responsibilities. Or you’re a senior level manager who is responsible for P&L, sales quotas and has multiple direct reports. Your time and energy can get quickly drained from getting into the weeds of the project of trying to hire and recruit yourself. Stop and pause to ask yourself…

Does putting in the long hours to recruit top talent yourself
serve your business for the future you want to create?

Organizations who try to handle all the hiring yourself too often fall into the trap of hiring too quickly ~ understandably because you want to hurry to get back to doing your actual job of running the company or the division you head up. 

Handling all the recruiting yourself is also riddled with blind spots that commonly turn into very costly hiring mistakes.

Jim McKenna has a background in our industry and presents qualified candidates with a high likelihood of success.  Other search firms ascribe to a quantity over quality approach, presenting numerous candidates whose qualifications can be marginal.

Jim McKenna at Definitive Search Partners understands that his success is not measured by getting someone hired.  He seeks to place qualified candidates with strong companies offering good careers.  

Credible effort.  Credible feedback.  Credible results.

We have worked to bring on a number of candidates over the years who have succeeded in our organization. DSP taught me how to “think outside of the box” on potential candidates as their experience in understanding how skill sets in different industries could be brought to benefit my organization in the long run.

This thinking was not something that I always ascribed too but their professionalism and knowledge of our industry (and others) has led me to trust their judgement and rely on them for good, solid candidates time after time.

Hiring Options

DIY Hiring

Appears “cheaper” in the short run (but normally is most expensive in the long run).

Our first hand experience working in the Building Products and Commercial Construction industries gives us the ability to sell candidates on the job better than our competitors.

Work with Us

Our first-hand experience of actually working in the Building Materials and Commercial Construction industry prior to going into the search business gives us the ability to gain trust and credibility with the candidates we are recruiting.  It also gives confidence to the hiring manager that we understand what they do and what they are looking for, because we have been there.

Boutique Executive Search Firms

Anyone can say they are a recruiter and that they specialize in a particular industry, but do they?  A lot of the Boutique Search Firms hire people who have never recruited before or may have some recruiting experience but from a totally different industry and then call themselves experts in their new industry.

The Power of Passionate People

At Definitive Search Partners we are committed to helping you build your dream team faster,
so you can excel as the go to leader in your industry. In any organization you want to:

Get the right people on the bus

Get the wrong people off the bus

Get the right people in the right seats.

I had the pleasure of working with Jill during the time in 2020 when communities were on lock down and job loss was more prevalent than new opportunities. She is very professional, caring, and very personable. I felt very confident working with Jill. She helped me navigate a needle in the haystack opportunity each step of the way.

Her strategy with an array of tools and guidance ultimately lead me to a new industry and a new career. Her unique approach and attention to the details were the hallmark of my experience working with her. My goals were her goals and together we exceeded them. Jill knows how to deliver results and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking her professional services.

 I worked with Jill when securing a job and she was phenomenal to work with. I could rely on her for advice at anytime and she always would get back to me. If you are looking to work with a recruiter I highly recommend Jill and her team you will get 5 star service!

Jill helped me through the process of getting a new job and I couldn’t speak more highly of her. Not only did she help me find the job, she helped me thoroughly through the entire process. She was friendly, available whenever I needed her, and continues to check in on me. Thanks Jill!
