Examples of Employers using Penski Staffing, A CorTech LLC Company Direct Hire Services:
  • A local business service needed to replace a Comptroller and needed to keep their search confidential. They relied on us to start searching and passing on résumés. When the owner found a good match, he was able to address the issues he had with the incumbent and negotiate a mutually agreeable separation, assured that he had a candidate qualified and ready to step in. We were then able to provide outplacement services for the former Comptroller.

The incumbent was retiring and we consulted with the Search Committee of the Board of Directors in reviewing the job description, key skills needed going forward, and generating a list of possible contacts who would know candidates in the field. We called the contacts and build a database of candidates, then emailed and called the possible candidates, received résumés, did background checks, and arranged for a series of interviews.
