WHY USE A SALES SEARCH PROFESSIONAL

The vast majority of job openings are not advertised, and there are a number of reasons for this. Companies know that by advertising frequently, they run the risk of implying a high rate of employee turnover. Other organizations require confidentiality in their searches. Most companies that use a search professional, however, have found that working with an agency provides better-suited applicants in a shorter period of time.

We understand the complex issues involved when an employed professional searches for a new job, and we assure you that any information you send us will remain confidential. Your resume will not be posted on the Internet and we will conduct a face-to-face interview with you before sending your resume to any of our clients.

If we have an opportunity that matches your qualifications and/or we feel that we can conduct a search for you, one of our associates will get in touch with you within 72 hours. We will call you at home or on your mobile phone; if you are not available, we will leave a message and wait for you to return our call. We will not attempt to call you at work unless you specify that you prefer us to do so. If you have not heard from us within a reasonable amount of time, please feel free to give us a call.

What this Means for You

At DANA Associates, we pride ourselves on our ability to find appropriate matches between our candidates and our clients. Rather than just matching your work experience with a corporate job description, we take the traditional recruitment process a step further by utilizing a company-designed methodology called the holistic approach to the placement process.

The holistic approach stresses the assessment of all factors relevant to the placement process. Your needs, aspirations, and unique circumstances are vital in determining your compatibility with our clients’ requirements. We make the extra effort to get to know each of our candidates on both a professional and personal level. Our ultimate goal is for each candidate to feel confident that we understand exactly what he or she is seeking.

DANA Associates specializes in the placement of sales and sales management professionals. We seek to build cohesive, effective and productive teams within our clients’ organizations, which entails the placement of mid to senior level sales executives, from those with a minimum of 3-5 years of sales experience to Vice Presidents. Our clients range from entrepreneurial enterprises to Fortune 1000 companies in the strongest industries.

Our corporate clients pay all fees. There is no charge to candidates for selecting our services or for submitting a resume to us.

  • "Having worked with other recruiters gave me a credible reference point by which to truly gauge the difference provided by DANA Associates over other sales recruiters. The sheer time and effort Denise Grant put into working with me was far beyond my expectations. While other recruiters were merely attempting to place me into whatever job listings they had, Denise's highly personalized and holistic approach was a stark contrast. Denise was concerned about finding the right opportunity for me. We sat together face-to-face on multiple occasions and had a whole host of long phone conversations. By the end, she had worked to get to know me and my desired career trajectory. What resulted was the right match between my career goals and my current employer. At DANA Associates they get the equation right."
