Degree Required

Most jobs, not all….. but most, that you recruit for require a college degree. This is a basic first requirement for a lot of searches that recruiters work on. Most of the time, required means required. Must have.Sometimes, degree required means degree preferred. For the right candidate with the right skills and background, we can deal with them not having a degree.Two thirds of adults in the US do not have a college degree. That’s a startling statistic when you spend much of your life looking…See More

Not On Your Schedule

The right fit is not always there on your schedule. Too many times, in recruiting, we run into a friend, acquaintance, or candidate that is looking for a change and they want or need it to happen now. Out of a job, can’t stand where I’m at, finally realized that this isn’t the right fit or best fit for me.This is your schedule and the rest of the world doesn’t adhere to your schedule. While there is surely a better fit available, it may not be the right fit, a great fit. All candidates should…See More

Re-Setting The Bar

The other day I heard about a friend of a friend who had been out of work. This was a company move and layoff because of the move. No fault of the employee, and by all indications a pretty talented guy.Regardless of the talent, he’s been looking and hasn’t found anything for about six months. He is an experienced candidate and he interviewed recently for an entry level role. Not the right fit. The company is interested in him and willing to hire him at the entry level or near entry level rate.…See More

Better Parts

How will your business look at the end of 2018? Hopefully better. If things are good now, you still want better. Better parts, better business.Companies are putting plans in motion to improve this year. Those plans will involve a lot of recruiting to replace weaker parts and to add businesses, product lines, or divisions. Identifying key areas for improved or additional talent is critical and will lead the way to a better business by the end of the year.…See More

Not For Everyone

Maybe not for you. In recruiting we tend to fall into the trap of the ideal candidate. While there are tremendously talented people that any company would benefit from having on board, there are too many talented people out there to make any one candidate the ideal fit for every business.One particular great candidate is not for everyone and maybe not for your business. Focus on fit is extremely important. What will this candidate do in your particular business? What kind of impact will they…See More

Optimal Timing

The hiring manager comes to you and says I need this and I need it yesterday. That’s typical, but definitely not optimal. If you need it right now, it’s late, and you’re at a disadvantage. This leads to mediocre hires, maybe even bad hires. Mediocre hires build mediocre businesses. Bad hires…..well, you know the rest.If the long range plan is that you will need someone with xyz qualifications, but there is no plan in place to get to the point where the business really needs that person, it’s…See More

“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 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?
