The Client Side - March Madness - Survive and Advance

I live in Chapel Hill North Carolina. Down here we know that God is a Tarheel fan and that's why he made the sky Carolina Blue. Many years (this year included and unfortunately last year as well) we don't hope for a National Championship, we expect it. So every Heels game in the tournament is a real nervous affair. The famous line for favorites in the tourney is just Survive and Advance. So any way we can get a win and move on is what we're after.Over the last several months as I've read and…See More

I started Todd Kmiec & Associates in 2002 as the Independent Recruiting world was beginning to really develop into what it is today. We are, and always will be totally committed to working with independent recruiters.

At its core, recruiting is simply about finding the right candidate, not creating them. Our unique business model enables us to both cast a wider net and dig deeper into any industry. In the end, the more difficult positions are filled because of greater reach. With talented independent recruiters working for themselves, our model provides that greater reach. Every recruiter’s network is unique and every recruiter’s process is their own. By working with strong independent recruiters with various backgrounds, networks, and processes we expand our clients’ reach to fill difficult positions.

After sus­tain­ing a strong blow from the reces­sion, the sup­ply chain man­age­ment indus­try is now poised for sus­tained growth. Com­pa­nies offer­ing ser­vices and prod­ucts that cater to trans­porta­tion man­age­ment, ware­hous­ing, con­sult­ing, and logis­tics will see high­er demand as busi­ness­es ramp up pro­duc­tion dur­ing the eco­nom­ic recov­ery.

The Value Of Experience

Posted on June 9, 2012 at 2:11pm 0 Comments

How much does experience play in recruiting success?

A lot. If you’ve been in recruiting for a while, think about how quickly you can tell a candidate is not a fit compared to how quickly you would see this when you started. Candidates don’t like the thought of recruiters discounting them quickly, but experience working on more searches that are similar develops an intuitive sense that is tremendously valuable.

The time saved is best for everyone involved so both the… Continue

Success comes, in large part, from luck.  Michael Lewis recently gave a commencement speech at Princeton and this was his theme.

I found the speech and the stories circulating about it interesting.  I like Lewis and think he has some good perspective on a number of issues.  The circumstances we were born into and much of what affects our lives in a very basic way is certainly just luck.  In recruiting we deal with luck all the time.  There are so many moving parts and so many issues…


The DTF Job Market Is Strong

Posted on June 5, 2012 at 1:07pm 0 Comments

Someone asked me last week how business is.  When I told them it was great, they said that is really good because they see us as a leading indicator.  I don’t really see us as a leading indicator and after giving it some thought I think there is a general misunderstanding of what our market is.

As third party recruiters, the overall job market is not our market.  The overall job market still stinks.  Unemployment is way too high and the long-term unemployment numbers are terrible.…


Just Hire Good People And Train Them.....Unless

Posted on June 2, 2012 at 7:48pm 4 Comments

There is a lot of talk these days about how companies should just hire good people and train them. After all, we have high unemployment still, and this would be the right thing to do for the greater good, right?

Sure, unless….Unless the best thing for your business or your division is not to just hire and train, but instead to find the person with the skills you need. What’s best for the greater good is for more companies to do better and to grow and get stronger. Many times that… Continue

“Todd is truly a breath of fresh air in this industry. He takes a very open and honest approach when it comes to his business and in the recruiting industry there is not much more you can ask for. I can always trust what Todd tells me and I know that he always has his clients, the candidates and the recruiters best interests in mind during all stages of the process. Todd’s ability to handle the needs of both his client and the candidate in a manner that results in a great experience for all is one of the many factors that set him apart. I am excited to grow our working relationship and look forward to future opportunities with Todd and his company. Todd’s professionalism, dedication to the job at hand and trustworthiness easily allow me to strongly recommend him to any client or business partner. Regardless of the role or opportunity presented to work with him I am certain Todd will make an excellent partner and will leave you with only the best of impressions.” December 14, 2009

“I have worked with Todd for over 3 years and am amazed at his reach nationally to find the best candidates. I have hired him to help one of my clients to find engineers, something in short supply in Southern California. He always comes up with the best candidates, even better than the local recruiters I have worked with. Todd is punctual and very responsive when contacted and stays in touch all the time throughout the process. He is a beacon of light in an industry full of recruiters who are lazy. I highly recommend Todd if you need a recruiter who is very effective and has a great network. He really works for his fees. Dan Curtin” November 10, 2008

“We have been working with Todd Kmiec since the beginning of this year (2008). We have found that Todd is very professional, and that he has a very strong knowledge of the way recruitng should be done. Todd knows his clients and understand what they are looking for in a candidate. He is very quick to respond to any questions and provides concise and clear feedback. When a candidate is in the interview phase Todd follows through so that all parties can be kept up to date and clear on the status. We have worked with Todd on several difficult to fill positions and have both enjoyed, and learned from the experience. We look forward to working with him on many more. November 7, 2008 Sally K.

“Todd surpasses all recruiters and is by far the most consistent and organized recruiter I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I have had a working business relationship with Todd since January '07 and have yet to see anything short of superior work ethics. I give Todd two thumbs up and a solid recommendation for those willing to establish a working relationship with him, you will not be let down. Mike Land Executive Recruiter” November 6, 2008

"Todd is someone that is very intelligent and works hard to get where he is today. I've had the pleasure of working with Todd since 2008 sourcing candidates for him. He's always available to answer any questions that I have and makes it a point to always touch base. He really is someone to know as he takes great joy in what he does. He's working round the clock to please his clients and does it all with a great attitude. I look forward to a great working relationship with him and will definitely always reach out to him for advice." May 7, 2009

"Todd is one hard to come by and rare to find. Over the years I’ve known him through our daily recruiting operations, he has never failed me, not even ONCE. He is 200% dedicated and expert at what he does. His follows his miraculous system with precision, insight, determination and perfection. He is one I’ve known with the most business common sense, openness and fairness. You can expect a lot from him but still not getting disappointed. He is truly one of a million, the best partner I’ve had. He sets the perfect example of what a model business partner should be. I can never say enough of how proud I am in finding him. I have no doubt that our partnership will be a lifelong one. I highly recommend Todd to anyone interested in partnering with him for any business activity." May 10, 2009

I don't always have a candidate for your open job orders but always conduct a

search in my files and "only" send if appropriate.  Would appreciate remaining on

your open job listing distribution.  Frank Gregg,. GREGG & Associates

Hi, my name is Kevin and I am the operations manager for a healthcare recruiting firm in Los Angeles, CA. I’m reaching out to you because you indicated on your profile that you were in healthcare staffing and possibly open to doing some splits. We have a lot of open job orders and offer a 50/50 fee split. Would you be open to discussing ways we could collaborate from time to time?
