Marcus & Associates prides ourselves on providing highly flexible, responsive and personal service for every client. Our unique pay for performance approach means that results precede payment. This continually motivates us to provide the most efficient, highest quality, results-driven process. Within just the first 3-4 weeks, we produce a full selection of qualified and motivated candidates. We will design a complete project summary Method that will continue to be updated to help manage and prioritize candidate evaluation and selection. Depending on scheduling, we put our clients in a position to extend an offer to the candidate of choice on average of 8-12 weeks. Our ongoing services will extend through an offer to ensuring an acceptance by the candidate of choice. Many of our traditional retained search firm competitors require payment before results are delivered. Moreover, their service stops short of ensuring an acceptance.

If your recruiting firm relies primarily on the internet and/or an outdated database it is highly probable that you will not be able to secure the best talent to fit your needs.
