Most frequent questions and answers

Yes. All of our open positions come with some sort of relocation allowance to help with the expenses of relocating. 

Yes. We will prep you for every interview you take. We know what our clients are looking for, so we will let you know what to expect and what experiences and accomplishments you should be sure to communicate to them in an interview.

Yes. If you connect us with another Infection Prevention professional that is interested in this position, and ultimately gets hired – we will send you a $500 referral bonus. 

Of course. We work to get you the highest possibly financial package – and communicate our progress throughout the process. We are financially incentivized to get you the most lucrative offer possible. 

Absolutely. We will review your resume before we submit it to the client to make sure it communicates everything it needs to.

First, everything we offer to our candidates is completely FREE. 

We operate as advisors and consultants for your Infection Prevention career. We’ve recruited in this industry for a long time and understand the profession as well as anyone.

If you decide you’d like us to represent you and apply for a position, the first thing our team will do is examine your resumé closely. We will fix up your resumé to ensure it communicates exactly what our client is looking for – demonstrating not only what you’ve been responsible for in previous Infection Prevention positions, but also how effective you’ve been in those roles. 

We have direct access to the hiring managers in the positions we search on which allows us to present your resumé directly to them, knowing exactly what they want to see in a candidate. We will keep you in the loop when this happens and what their initial feedback is. No more waiting in the dark hoping to hear back from HR.

Because of our relationships with the hiring manager, we have the ability to make a case for them to speak with you. It also allows us to get quick, honest feedback following each interview you have. And we will provide that feedback to you, good or bad.

In addition to preparing your resumé and presenting directly to the hiring manager, we also will prep you for each and every interview. Again, we know what our clients are looking for, so we will let you know what to expect and what experiences and accomplishments you should be sure to communicate to them in an interview.

In terms of the interview process, we’ll work with you and the client to get those scheduled during a time that makes sense for you.

Perhaps the most beneficial piece of being represented by Clutch Recruitment is that we’ll negotiate an offer for you – securing the highest possible offer the client can make. Don’t worry about your salary demands rubbing your future employer the wrong way;  we do all of that for you, ensuring a completely fair offer, without the awkwardness that potentially comes with it. We are financially incentivized to get you the highest possible offer, and we will ensure that happens.

Once you accept an offer, our work doesn’t stop. We’ll be there to talk you through your resignation and prepare you for how to handle a counter offer, along with all other complications that may arise. 

We have a large in house sourcing team that collects information from various databases online including LinkedIn, certification boards, and professional associations.
