At Accounting Partners, we believe in utilizing every resource possible to find the best person for your open position. This oftentimes means browsing job boards, utilizing referrals, on-line advertising, internal recruiters, company website posting, etc., as well as working with a trusted outside recruiting firm.

The biggest advantage that recruiting firms can bring to the table is being able to uncover that hidden talent that isn't actively looking for work. The candidate that is happy with their current position and who wouldn't respond to an ad. The candidate that is giving it their all for their current employer. An outside recruiting firm is able to identify and approach these candidates to explain the benefits of new opportunities. Because of this, we are able to bring a whole different group of candidates to the table that may not be uncovered otherwise.
