While executive search is our business, we have always believed in the value of giving good career advice.

It's Not Just About Getting A Job. 

We began over 40 years ago as a career school to educate women--and soon after, men--about career options, particularly in executive sales. That foundation resonates through everything we do today: We are an executive search firm committed to helping our candidates make smarter, better career choices, and helping our corporate clients connect with candidates who would be particularly well aligned with their hiring needs.

At Every stage, building careers. 

We specialize in recruitment for B2B Sales positions, from entry level to senior level management, as well as Marketing and other closely related areas. Our client companies include fast-growing start-ups and global leaders across many industry sectors. We are based in NYC and actively recruit in San Francisco, LA, London, and other US and international cities.

executive sales is our focus. 

Those who turn to us for career counsel and job placement range from recent college graduates to experienced sales professionals and senior level executives. The majority of them (and probably you) are referred to us by others, based on our track record and our reputation as an invaluable career resource. And for these individuals, all of our services are free. 

We provide executive search with a difference, and you’ll experience that difference from our first conversation.

We repeatedly hear from our candidates that in addition to being a job resource, we listen to what THEY want.

Exceptional candidates, exceptional Opportunities.

When we tell a candidate that it’s not our goal to find you a job, we’re being completely honest. We’re focused on building careers. Many (though not all) of the people who come to us are currently employed. They already have jobs. What they don’t have are careers or, at the very least, the kind of career paths that are stimulating to them. We challenge them to evaluate a job in terms of long range goals; and we encourage everyone to be picky, using the information we have provided to make well-informed career moves.

We care about more than getting you a job. 

We’ve always believed that by providing our candidates with a source of career advice and counsel, we will not only provide an immediate benefit, we also develop a referral stream and a rich pool of talent that will attract the best companies and the best job opportunities. The positions posted on our site highlight these opportunities and lend a sense of the diversity of searches we address—from entry-level to senior-level management in sales and related areas in a wide range of industries in NYC as well as other selected US and international cities.

The companies you want to work for. 

The quality of client companies we work with range from best-in-class, industry leaders to rising stars in the start-up space. We’re selective about who we work with because we want what you want: a quality employer with a solid product offering, a strong brand and a desirable corporate culture.
And while we cannot place every applicant we meet, we can assure that the experience of working with us will be a positive one. Our reputation relies on it.

Candidate services include:

Career Advisory | Job Placement | Resume Critiquing | Interview Coaching

Asking questions and having frank conversations enables us to get to the heart of what matters most to our clients.

We want to learn about you and your company. 

Gaining a thorough understanding of our client companies and their hiring needs informs our recruitment process and leads to a tailored approach to finding talent. Being more knowledgeable makes us better at identifying individuals who both fit the culture and are well qualified for the job. And we become powerful brand champions, helping you stand out in the competition for good talent.

in touch with the candidates you want to reach. 

We take a candidate-centric approach, establishing deep relationships, to the benefit of the companies we serve. Our extensive community, virtual and live, enables us to know when candidates are ready to move and puts us in touch with the candidates you want to know.

We send people, not resumes.

We pride ourselves on identifying the right talent for the job, presenting the “select few,” and we become true talent partners, not only staying closely involved to ensure the success of candidates we place, but also available as free counsel on any talent-related topics from structuring the selection process to identifying new ways to retain and motivate sales talent. The result is an exceptionally high success rate evidenced by the loyalty and trust both candidates and clients place in us.

Have you ever heard the warning, "You only get what you pay for"? Well, you are in for a nice surprise.
