Hurwitz Strategic Staffing, Ltd.  - Executive Recruiting and Career Counseling Services

Copyright 2018  Hurwitz Strategic Staffing, Ltd.

The HSS process is designed with one goal in mind: to close searches quickly and efficiently.  With a network of over 50,000 professionals, that goal becomes reality!  The reason we offer a six-month guarantee is that we believe in our process.  Our candidates remain on the job!

If necessary, we assist our clients with the creation of job descriptions.  If the client already has completed the job description, we will review it to make certain that we understand not just who the client is looking to hire, but also what they are looking for.  Every company and non-profit has a culture.  We only submit candidates who we believe fit that culture.  Once the job description is finalized we will immediately search our resume data base and approach our professional and personal networks to locate candidates.  We will review resumes and invite qualified candidates for an interview.  Candidates who are not located in metro-New York will be interviewed over the phone or on Skype. 

If we feel a candidate is a match for the client, we will submit them.  We prepare a "Submission Document" which is divided into three sections:  In the first, "Rationale for Submission," we explain why we feel the candidate is a good match for the client.  The second section is a summary of our interview with the candidate, and the final section is their resume.  

If the client likes the candidate, we will arrange an interview.  At the request of the client, we will check references, report back to the client and, if they decide to make an offer, we will assist with negotiations.

The specific services we provide are:

  • Assisting with the preparation of the job description
  • Networking to find candidates
  • Reviewing resumes
  • Interviewing candidates
  • Presenting selected finalists
  • Arranging appointments
  • Checking references
  • Assisting with negotiations

Fees and Guarantee

The fee for executive recruiting services is 15% of the candidates first year base salary, dropping to 10% if the candidate is a veteran of the US Armed Forces or Merchant Marine.  A $3,000 retainer, which will be deducted from the final payment, is required on the signing of a contract.  There are no additional fees for the above services.  Pre-approved additional fees will be charged for such things as out-of-area travel and background checks.
