Executive Search Firms: What is really happening behind the scenes? by Bernie Reifkind

What is really happening behind the scenes?

So what is really happening behind the scenes at the nations number one healthcare executive search firm?

It’s important to know something up front. Executive recruiters do not find jobs for people.

We find people for jobs.

Simply put, our clients (the employers) pay our fees! Candidates do not. So our attention is on our valued clients, the employer. This doesn’t mean that we do not care about our candidates.

In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. Changing jobs is one of the biggest decisions that we ever make and should never be taken lightly. When speaking with candidates we are extremely aware how much effect that we may have on someone’s life and that of their loved ones.
