The most frustrating thing in the world is to be led to believe something is going to happen and then NOTHING! The recruiting world is notorious for leaving you frustrated. If you are a Manager – taking your time to give a complete job order – you know how frustrating it is to be led to believe that your project will get immediate attention and priority and then NOTHING!
If you are a Job Seeker, you can imagine your frustration when you take the time to complete your resume, spend 20 to 30 minutes on the phone talking to a recruiter and that is the last you ever hear from them. Even more frustrating is having an interview and never hearing anything back.
The Gorge Group will communicate. The Gorge Group will let you know what is happening and more importantly The Gorge Group will tell you what is not happening.
It is the goal of The Gorge Group to call back 3, 4 or 5 years later and find that the person we placed with the company is still there, thinks that it is the best career decision he or she has made and the company is just as happy.
We are not interested in “drive by” placements.
Respect for both the Candidate and Managers is the key operating principle of The Gorge Group. Recruiters at The Gorge Group will not try to twist any Candidate's arm – emotionally or in any other fashion - to accept a position. This is to the Candidate's benefit, the Company's benefit and the benefit of The Gorge Group. It is the goal of The Gorge Group that every placement is for the long term and not a “drive by”. (For those of you that aren't familiar with a “drive by” placement, it is simply to place a Candidate, collect the money and “get out of Dodge” before the Candidate and Company discover they are a bad match.)
Why would any Company or Candidate ever do business with or refer a business associate to a company that does not build long term working relationships? The Gorge Group is always interested in the first placement with a Company, but is more interested in the fourth, fifth and sixth career placement.
Part of The Gorge Group “respect” is to always be up front and truthful with both the Client Company and Job Seeker. The Gorge Group will keep our Client Companies up to date with our progress on their search. We will also level with every Job Seeker about his or her particular career situation.
The Gorge Group will provide feedback from every Candidate to our Client Companies after every interview. After discussing the interview with the Client Company, The Gorge Group will give feedback to the Candidate. Good, bad or indifferent news, The Gorge Group will keep you informed.
If you are looking for a new career position and want to be treated as a person and not as a commodity, your recruiter will be The Gorge Group.
If you want to hire a quality employee and want to be treated as more than a “cash cow”, your recruiter will be The Gorge Group.
