The DANA Difference


We have a unique and immersive approach to the placement process.

DANA Associates prides itself on the long-term business relationships it has established with clients and candidates throughout the years. Our record of success stems from our ability to assimilate various corporate cultures and individual personalities into our placement strategies. We acquire an in-depth understanding of each client and candidate, eliminating potential conflicts that may arise as a result of factors other than work experience.

By developing viable and mutually beneficial relationships with our clients and candidates, we have become quite sensitive to nuances on both sides, and can devise appropriate strategies that will ensure lasting placements. Our large volume of repeat business is a testament to the effectiveness of our full-service, relationship-building approach to providing placement services.

  • "Within the past year, we used DANA Associates to build out our inside sales team, hiring three terrific young women. As the CEO of a sustainable textile design company, I was seeking sales professionals who were focused, driven, had the ability to close sales, and were uniquely able to fit within our culture. Denise took the time to learn about our company, coming out to meet with the Director of Marketing and even attending a 'Friends & Family Sales Event'. Utilizing her understanding of our needs and organization, she was able to find candidates that not only had the qualities to be good at the job, but would fit within our company. At the end of the day, the organizational fit is often more important than what is on the candidate's resume. Denise knows so much about her business, has a sixth sense about people, and understands that the intangibles make such a difference. For Denise, filling the position is not the end of her responsibilities; she checks in and follows-up if there are concerns. We know that she cares about the candidates and the company."
