Job Information

Let’s face it, most search firm job postings for recruiters paint a very rosy picture of their company, culture, and team. They have all of the adjectives about a “fun,” “collaborative,” and “competitive” environment. They talk about all of the positives about our industry;  and shy away from/minimize the negatives, which include why most recruiters don’t “make it” in the industry.

Agency recruiting is a tough job. If you interview with us, we’ll show/tell you exactly why that is, and what kind of people typically see success, and which ones don’t. However, we like to think with our industry-leading brand, our process, the support system we offer, etc., you have a better chance of succeeding at SkyWater than anywhere else.

What you won’t find anywhere else:

  1. Forbes Magazine’s #1 MN-based Executive Search Firm in 2017
  2. The #1 MN-based Executive Search Firm based on placements (we place ~250 people/year in full-time, permanent positions)
  3. 8-time Best Place to Work Winner (every year since we opened our doors)
  4. Top commission structure in the industry
    1. We have yet to find anyone that pays more competitively than we do
  5. 30 full-time, permanent recruiters across our 5 practice disciplines
  6. Extremely low turnover; for an industry that often plays musical chairs with recruiters coming in and out, we’re most proud of the fact that we not only hire less experienced people and train them into some of the best recruiters in Minnesota, but that we have enough pro’s at SkyWater to retain our industry-leading recruiters
  7. A management team that doesn’t care about metrics; we don’t care how many phone calls you make, how many meetings you land, or any other useless metric. etc. We feel results matter more than any activity-based metric.
  8. We encourage any potential recruiter to meet with any SkyWater employee they want; we have nothing to hide. Ask any question you want…nothing is off limits.

If you’re interested in learning why SkyWater is a very unique place to work, apply now.

Desired Skills and Experience:
  • Bachelor’s degree, preferably >3.0 GPA
  • 1-5 years of sales experience, preferably in the recruiting/B2B service industry
  • Experience in a competitive sport preferred (very loosely defined; if you were the #1 Underwater Basket Weaver in MN in high school, we want to talk to you)
  • A confident personality, yet humble enough to know that there is a lot to learn in this business
  • The catch-all line: motivated, self-starter, outgoing, personable, hard-working, plays well with others, etc.
