You describe the job and the type of person you are looking for, and we provide you with qualified, pre-screened applicants for consideration. If you offer one of these individuals a job, he or she becomes your employee and our participation ends. We charge a placement fee, which is a percentage of the employee's anticipated annual income. This is a very convenient method by which to hire for your permanent positions, and you pay us only if we fill the job successfully.
- Avoid the expense of classified advertising.
- Save time by not having to sift through unqualified applicants yourself.
- Enjoy the benefits of our extensive screening and testing procedures.
- Enjoy total confidentiality.
- Save time and long-distance charges involved in checking references.
- Take advantage of our extensive database of applicants already screened and on file.
- Meet with only those applicants who satisfy your requirements.
Types of Jobs
We have been involved in a wide variety of placements, and because we can do additional recruiting whenever necessary, we can take on almost any type of order. The types of positions we fill frequently and for which we have a pool of qualified applicants already on file include:
- Clerical -- from file clerks to administrative assistants and office managers.
- Bookkeepers and accountants from entry level to CPA.
- Skilled labor positions such as HVAC technicians, carpenters, machine repair and maintenance technicians.
- Customer service, marketing and salespeople, and graphic designers.
- Engineers and other technical positions such as drafters and GPS technician.
- Managers, administrators, and executives.
Search and Placement
When you place an order, we will discuss the position with you in great detail. We will ask about the skills and training required, the types of people who have been successful in this position in the past and those who have not, your future expectations for the employee and any other information you think pertinent.
We begin our search in our own files, with the hundreds of applicants who have already been screened and interviewed. If we do not already have the perfect match, we will run classified ads and use other methods of recruitment to seek out new applications. We are discrete; you will remain anonymous in our recruiting efforts and discussions with candidates until you have decided to meet with them.
If you prefer to advertise the position yourself and then pass the pile of resumes you receive onto us for screening, we are happy to handle it that way as well. Sometimes, highly desirable employers can get a bigger response to a help wanted ad with their name included, than we can when we keep you anonymous.
Every applicant, whether already on file, recruited by additional advertising, or referred to us by you, goes through the same screening process. We then present you with detailed information on each of the most qualified candidates in a format that makes them easy to compare.

After you have reviewed the candidates and decided which, if any, you want to interview, we can make all the arrangements for you.
You make the final choice and have full control over all salary and benefits negotiations. We will handle the final task of notifying any unsuccessful applicants.
We bill you only upon satisfactory placement. After you have made an offer and the applicant has accepted, we ask what your final negotiations were and bill you a percentage of the anticipated annual income of the employee. Please call to inquire about our current percentage.
Special Group Rates – If you are hiring a group of people to do the same job, we may be able to provide a discount on our placement fee, depending on the number of hires involved.
If, within three months from the placement, the employee does not work out for any reason other than the stated "exception" below, we will refund your money.
Exception: We cannot guarantee satisfaction if the placement does not work out because the position (duties, work schedule, salary or benefits, location, supervisor, etc.) is not as described to Career Connections or the employee.
The applicants we recruit, screen and refer to you are considered our inventory. Our policy is that if you hire anyone we refer, whether for temporary or permanent placement for any position in your organization, within six months of that referral, we will charge you a placement fee (unless you have utilized our temp-to-perm option).
