Whether your need is immediate or you just want to explore career options, working with an Executive Search Recruiter should be part of your search strategy.

An Executive Search Recruiter is paid by the hiring  company to source and refer high calibre candidates. Unlike many Executive Search Firms who limit their practice to working with senior level executive candidates, Ken Malek Associates works with middle management candidates and senior level executives in its practice.

Working with an Executive Recruiter is a shortcut to getting your credentials directly in front of a hiring manager.

Whether you take the initiative to approach a recruiter or one contacts you, there are certainly advantages to working with one or more recruiter.

Recruiters can be a candidate’s eyes and ears in the job market and your advocate with a potential employer. They often know of opportunities yet to be advertised and help professionals throughout the job-search process as an adviser, coach and confidant.

Meeting with a potential employer can be a daunting prospect for many people, but recruiters can help job seekers quickly build rapport with hiring managers. Recruiting professionals provide advice on interviewing with each contact, including questions to ask and not ask. In addition, recruiters have insight into current salary trends, what a company is likely to pay and your representative in compensation negotiations.
