Our Approach

Any recruiter can match resumes to job requirements. But finding people who fit your team and culture is trickier. It takes deep discovery. The recruiter needs to talk with the hiring manager, meet the teammates, experience the workplace, and understand why people choose to work for you. Then, they need to go out and find the right people. This is the basis for how we work:

Deep Intake

Understanding must-haves, nice-to-haves, company culture, team dynamic, and what it takes to thrive in the role.

Social Sourcing

Scouring our networks, databases, social media and the web for qualified people who match the right profile.

Candidate Experience

Reaching out to potential candidates, starting a conversation, telling your story, listening with care, and communicating openly.

“Recruiting Social helped change the way that I looked at recruiters as I could see that they looked at more than just skills listed on a resume or LinkedIn profile and looked at the person as a whole and how they could contribute.”
