When I was first introduced to SkyWater Search, they had inherited our search from a different recruiter who left and the results fell flat. However, SkyWater Search made a point to follow up with me to gain an understanding of our company and discuss additional staffing options for our business model.
Prior to embarking on our director level search, they found a terrific candidate for us for a junior position we needed to fill, and we were ready to extend an offer when the candidate withdrew due to a death in his immediate family. I was impressed that they kept plugging away at the junior employee position while also being able to bring us solid candidates for the director position that ended up being offered to the SkyWater candidate. He is our first senior level employee and plays a critical role in our company and SkyWater Search nailed it. Specifically, something I find helpful is that when SkyWater presents a candidate, they didn’t just send a resume’. SkyWater takes the time to deliver a bulleted synopsis of the individual along with how his/her experience fits into our needs.
Finally, I will also give a shout out to Kurt Rakos who has also taken the time to learn more about our business and provide outstanding customer service and counsel.
