Executive Recruiters: FPC of Southwest Missouri: Matching talent to job opportunities

How We Help

  • View our role as a recruiting partner to our clients.
  • Bring added value to the hiring process by saving them time and effort. We provide résumés of candidates our clients would not usually see.
  • Don't “source” candidates by looking for résumés already posted on job boards. Anyone can do that!
  • Are known for building long-term relationships with both client companies and candidates.
  • Use our industry knowledge, our nationionwide network, and our well-honed skills as professional Recruiters to quickly find the qualified professionals you need.

What you won't get from a job board, but will get from us:

  • Qualified, screened candidates (rather than stacks of résumés).
  • Evaluation of candidate for fit with your company culture.
  • Evaluation of candidate's amenability to relocation.
  • Third-party "blind" interviews, a screening tool no company can do on its own.
  • Reference-checking prior to a face-to-face interview.
  • Checking of education, certifications, and other claimed credentials.

Another aspect many companies would like to take advantage of, but can't, is really knowing the candidate. Here's an experiment a prospective employer might want to conduct. Make a list of all the candidates with whom you have a long-term relationship. One that covers major life milestones. Did you come up blank?

With two decades of experience and contacts, we often fill such blanks with exactly the right person.

Whether you need to find a qualified candidate for a job opening at your company or you are a candidate interested in exploring other job opportunities, we can help.
