Hi. We’re Recruiting Social, a recruiting services company.
We’re here to connect you with people who love what they do, believe in your company’s vision, and belong on your team.
Our mission is to make recruiting about people.

What we do
Our services adapt to your company’s recruiting needs. But no matter how we support you, we promise to put your people – you, your team, and the talent we approach on your behalf – first.
Our contingency searches focus on fewer, higher-quality candidates – so you aren’t inundated with unexceptional resumes. See more about contingency.
“This is an agency that is one step ahead of the game.”
Nina Rizzi, VP of People, 6S Marketing
How we do it
Any recruiter can match resumes to requirements. But finding someone who will thrive in the role – someone who will excel at the tasks, work well with the manager, add to the team dynamic, and contribute to the company culture – that’s trickier. This is how we do it:
Understanding must-haves, nice-to-haves, company culture, team dynamic, and what it takes to thrive in the role.
Scouring our networks, databases, social media and the web for qualified people who match the right profile.
Reaching out to potential candidates, starting a conversation, telling your story, listening with care, and communicating openly.
“Once Recruiting Social started working with our team, we noticed an immediate response. Hiring managers felt more comfortable. We were getting better candidates. It’s worked out fabulously.”
Debbie Ten Eyck, Director of HR for North America, Blast Radius (a WPP company)

Our 7 values
1. People First
Not talent, personnel, human resources, human capital, applicants, resumes, candidates, sends, placements, hires, managers, clients, or customers. We work with people. We recruit people.
2. Be Social
We seek connections, start conversations, build relationships, and participate in our community.
3. Learn & Grow
There is no end to knowledge. We want more, and we chase it.
We don’t stop pushing. Nothing worth doing is easy.
We look in different places, ask other questions, try new things. Nothing is ever “good enough”. We lead the way forward.
Information and experiences, successes and failures, good news and bad news – we share openly. It makes us all stronger.
7. Give Back
We share our successes by giving back. To our teammates, to our industry, to the community around us – to people who can use the help.
