How We Work

Overview: The E3 Difference

E3 stands for Efficiency, Expertise, and Ethics in Recruiting:


Our Fee is 25% less and Time to Hire is 50-75% Less than a typical Search Firm or if you did it your self


25 years recruiting experience, 65 years Business Experience, 550 Placements


We operate with a strict Code of Conduct and Donate a Portion of our Revenue to Charity

How do you find candidates?

We use an 8-Point Sourcing Method:


Leverage our Proprietary Database


Proactively Search and Post on the Premium Job Boards


Post and Proactively Recruit via Social Media


Source from Competitors, Similar Industries, and Industry Associations


Connect and present Residual Candidates from previous and similar searches


Leverage Industry Contacts to identify prospective candidates


Leverage our Team’s Extensive Networks


Leverage 50+ Affiliate Recruiters

After we’ve followed this process we will have connected with over 300 prospective candidates and in turn, present 3-5 pre-screened, pre-qualified candidates within 10-15 business days or sooner.

We offer a 90-day guarantee on each placed candidate. Additionally we follow a pay for performance model; there are no up-front fees; our Clients only pay us if they hire a candidate we present.
