Selecting the Right Search Partner Niche Expertise….recruiting has become social engineering integrated with systems engineering…an established network of players can be accessed instantly, generating referrals and new candidates. The generalist, starting from ground zero, regardless of expertise or process, cannot match the velocity with which today’s market moves. Research Capabilities…This upfront “systems engineering” cannot be done by the recruiter alone. Hobson has full time researchers, some with a decade of experience, and a strategic alliance with PSG Global, the largest off shore research firm in the world. Our owner trains their people.
Screaming Fast Technology…Our Staffing Software partner, Bullhorn, is the unquestioned industry leader. They release 20 new functionalities a month. Our entire computer hardware system was fully upgraded a year ago. As a firm we pioneered the blending of social media with traditional recruiting techniques Partner Level Results…Hobson is the only firm in America that houses four members of the Pinnacle Society, 75 of the Country’s top producing recruiters. Our owner is the long time Education Chair of the Pinnacle Society. CPC Certification…Each member of Hobson’s staff is a CPC, the industry’s only designation of professionalism and ethics and legal knowledge. Live Demos…The essence of recruiting is the cold headhunting call. We own it. Ask us to demonstrate. Ask our competition to do the same. The difference will be dramatic.

The Hobson Difference We never take all your money and “kick back.” Our Performance Based Retainer requires only 1/3 of the fee to engage our full services, with the balance due only upon successful completion of the search. We feel the “need for speed.” On average, we complete searches within 60 days. Most “global search firms” won’t even have a short list of viable candidates ready in that time frame. We never “get you” with “Administrative Charges.” Our Search Fee is our only fee. We don’t charge for administrative support, phone bills, computer usage and other clerical services associated with the search. We have no “Ivory Tower.” Our search teams are led by a Partner who is “hands-on” and “in the trenches” during every step of the search. We “cut to the chase.” We’re agile. We’re nimble. Once you say, “Go”, the search goes to full throttle. You’ll never chase us. We’ll push you to keep pace. We don’t believe in “boiler plate.” We’ll never claim to have done “hundreds of searches just like yours”. Similar, yes, but each search, like each client, is unique. The differences make all the difference, and we get that.
