Here’s How Our Process Works

Once you’ve indicated interest for a position and we’ve determined there is a potential fit, we’ll complete the following steps to advance your placement.




Meet & Prepare Your Resume

We’ll meet with you at our office or at a convenient location for you. This is not an interview, but an opportunity to explore why you’re looking for a new position and what your goals are based around your skills, interests, and desired culture.

Based on your objectives, we’ll help refine and prepare your resume.




Present You to the Company

Once we all agree that a particular company could be a fit for you, we’ll speak directly with the decision makers about you. We discuss your experience, goals, and culture fit in a personal conversation with the hiring team. We keep you informed of all discussions, estimated time table for responses, and any next steps.




Set Up an Interview with the Company

Next, an interview is scheduled. We’ll provide you with company information, names/titles of attendees, the interview location and schedule, and other pertinent information for that day.

You’ll collect business cards so you can send thank you notes in a timely manner.




Feedback from You and the Company

After each interview, you’ll call us with your feedback. We’ll gather your thoughts on the interview and discuss the details.

We’ll also speak with the company to get their feedback, thoughts on the interview, and next steps. Then we’ll reconnect to go over that information with you.




Receive and Review Job Offer

When you and the company believe there is a match, an offer will be extended to you. 

We continue to work with you throughout this process to make sure both parties are aligned on the details of the offer.

Marissa is phenomenal! She recruited me for my newest position. She was extremely knowledgeable in every step of the process, and she kept me informed along the way. She absolutely represents her clients very well (both the company she is recruiting for and the candidates she represents). I highly recommend working with Marissa!

Jennifer P.

Senior Analyst

Marissa was extraordinarily awesome to work with from beginning to end of the interview and hiring process. I had the pleasure of working with Marissa for my current position, and it was a seamless and smooth process thanks to her expertise. She asked the questions to stay in tune with my career goals and clearly had direct contact with the hiring manager – thus she knew it would be a great fit for both parties. Likewise, Marissa stayed in contact throughout the process and kept me current on all details. I am now in a role that I enjoy and challenges me daily. Thank you, Marissa!

Annie M.

Strategic Sourcing Manager

I have used Marissa’s recruiting services on two separate occasions and very pleased each time. Marissa kept me very up to date on position openings that fit my criteria and gave me adequate information related to the position and company. Marissa also provided many insightful recommendations for interviews such as what to expect, types of questions, and how to be best prepared. (Biggest being, be energetic about your answers!!) I am extremely happy with the latest position that Marissa helped me obtain. Great service, great person!
