About HSG

Hiring Solutions Group (HSG) is eager to work with exceptional employers that want to bring in great talent that will last. We provide stability for both employers and candidates by collaboratively aligning the needs of the employer with the talent, skills and ambitions of the candidate.

Making the right match requires a level of personal interaction that software screening and Internet searches alone cannot provide. We provide one-on-one coaching (to both employers and candidates), until we find the winning combination that delivers a coveted “Purple Squirrel”, the best possible candidate to fit your needs.

Since 1998

Our collaborative approach is based on years of experience, consistently meeting with clients and candidates face-to-face in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. We also have national partnerships we’ve developed with over 400 search firms during the past 15 years. As a result of working with the best of the best in search firms, we offer you a proven approach that gets results. That guarantees the most effective outcome for you.

Our method works. Let it work for you today!

Why Work With Us

Think about the amount of time it takes for your managers to clarify a position and its appropriate compensation, locate, screen, interview, negotiate, and hire the best potential candidate. An Executive Search Consultant is an expert with a proven process, resources, and a team to keep up on shifts within your industry that affect you. Can your staff drop what they are doing and focus on this full-time? Executive Search Consultants search, screen, qualify, and present only the top candidates who meet your predetermined requirements, saving you and your company substantial time and energy.

A Search Consultant’s skill is in sourcing the right candidate, not the most available candidate! There are no shortcuts. The only way to consistently hire the most talented people is to find them and approach them with a potentially superior opportunity. We help you to build that picture and bring it to fruition through our long-term commitment to your company. An effective Search Consultant will do this by making thousands of phone calls and connecting deep within a network that is diligently built over many years.

We spend a minimum of 2 1/2 hours with a candidate before he or she is ever presented to your firm. Contingency search firms spend 10-20 minutes. We utilize testing, multiple interactions, detailed feedback from others and more to help us determine the candidate who will have the greatest value for your firm. We act as a third party negotiator concentrating on bringing the parties to a mutually beneficial relationship including identifying red flags, asking tough questions, and mitigating risks to ensure both parties are making a good decision.

A Search Consultant works tirelessly talking to scores of people each day. We know your competitors and we know who’s doing business and who is not. We constantly measure Retainability – the biggest concern in today’s workplace. As a specialist with a pulse on the industry, we know what it takes to recruit a key player from your competition.

Companies tend to advertise locally and therefore usually attract local talent only. Advertising is not cheap and to advertise in multiple locations is costly. We are not limited to any one market and have extensive national and international contacts. We may stay local or reach as far as necessary to find the best possible candidate.

David-Levitt-Testimonial
Michael Schlager has the talent of instinctively forecasting business developments and second-naturedly understanding how it could impact not only himself but everyone he’s come into contact with whatever their area of interest or expertise. While I was job hunting, he knew how to connect with the relevant people at Thomson Financial, ILX and other cutting edge high tech shops in order to facilitate the search and the interviewing process. His talent management skills are in highest percentiles while his interest in people and helping them succeed is sincere and genuine.
