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.

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.
