SearchPartnerwas founded to promote and express several philosophies in the search business. The foremost of these is that we get what we want by helping others get what they need.
"I have worked successfully with Dave Staats for around fifteen years. His professionalism is impeccable, and the quality of his placements is something that I have learned to count on. It may sound cliche, but Dave is a partner, not just a recruiter."
The only comfortable way for SearchPartner consultants to operate is to act as an extension of the client for whom they are searching. This is done by being honest about the clients and by always knowing we will have to live with all our placements forever. We focus on what others will say about us and we always want that to be in the form of a recommendation.
SearchPartner is always interested in getting to know the best people. We maintain a constant focus on filling our clients' searches with top performers. This usually happens with people we have known for some time. Occasionally we do place someone who has initiated contact with us. Most of the time our searches are completed with people we actively seek out.
This explains why we have no "Current Openings" listed on our website and we do not subscribe to "Job Boards".
People contacted as possible candidates find that we are a comfortable resource with whom to discuss whether investigating even a single opportunity makes sense. Think of sports/entertainment agents except that our only "fee" is your "attention". 80% of the time we are happy to tell you we believe you are already in the right place. 20% of the time we know the right place and your career and life improve in ways you never expected.
