Industry Knowledge

In business since 1983, we have established a network and database of the top professionals and have cultivated relationships with “key spheres of influence” within each marketplace.

Daily training helps keep Whitaker in tune with today’s rapidly evolving technologies, equipping our staff with knowledge and skills to solve clients’ needs.

Consultative Approach

Our Account Managers, your single point of contact, will lead a recruiting team focused on getting to know your organization completely, your culture, group personality and expectations which allows us to identify the hand-in-glove fit quickly.

True Search Methodology

Our true search methodology ensures that we identify the ideal professional with the best experience, credentials and culture fit for your organization.

We look for candidates who are on the cutting edge of their skill-set and represent their disciplines with excellence.

Our team taps into many different resources including: proprietary database (cultivated since 1983), referrals, active participation and sponsorship in numerous industry associations, and virtual networks.

Candidate Evaluation

Our unique and effective approach provides our clients
with only the most qualified candidates, specifically
screened to assure that your needs are met efficiently. In
our experience, “quality” trumps “quantity” every time.

Candidate Submittal & Interview

Our team identifies the best-qualified candidates
without subjecting you to a barrage of resumes.

After each candidate is reviewed by you, we will assist
with scheduling phone, in-person or teleconference
interviews.

Professional references will be provided during the
interview process.

Additionally, your Account Manager will offer
consultation during preparation and extension of an
offer.

Candidate Onboarding

Contract:
Once an offer is extended and accepted, our
administrative team will assist in managing the
onboarding process to ensure a successful transition of
the candidate on the project.

Your Account Manager will continue candidate support
and consultation during the onboarding process.

Onboarding process for contract employees includes
Whitaker employment paperwork, pre-employment
requirements (drug screen and background check, if
applicable), and client policies & procedures as
determined.

Direct-Hire:
Your Account Manager will coach the candidate for the
possibility of a counter-offer, assist in tendering their
resignation and work with the human resources to ensure
a smooth transition.

Quality Control

To maintain a successful track record, our Account Managers conduct quality calls and continue correspondence with both the candidate and direct supervisor to ensure an ongoing successful rapport.
