PhilosophyIndirect Recruiting - Most recruiters call candidates to describe the“job of the day” and ask who they know who might be a fit. This isknown as indirect recruiting, where the goal is to get a referral orhave the candidate self-refer themselves.Direct Recruiting - The Alpine Group uses the direct recruitingapproach, where we invest time getting to know what thecandidate is looking for and might be interested in pursuing. Thatinvestment of time develops long-lasting relationships based ontrust. The approach is time-intensive but is significantly moreeffective when we sell your opportunity, since we have alreadylearned the candidate’s heartburns and hot buttons.
