WilliamCharles exceeded my expectations by having a network of international recruiting contacts and quickly getting me SEVERAL qualified American candidates in my price range for a General Manager position in Northern China. The other firms I contacted were not able to produce the same results. I appreciated how WilliamCharles worked with me and kept the candidates informed and happy during our long selection process. I also appreciated that WilliamCharles introduced me to English speaking recruiters in China to help us with other recruiting needs at our Qingdao, China operation.

“Recently, WilliamCharles helped us fill a highly visible position in our organization. As a human resource professional, I’m hesitant to hire someone else to recruit, since that’s part of what I am paid to do. But Chuck and Bill helped me put together a recruiting strategy that fit our budget and timeline. They asked questions that refined our definition of the position, and worked closely with our team until we all had a common expectation of the person we would hire.”

“Prior to WilliamCharles presenting any candidates, they took the time to understand the business we are in and our culture. They actually helped us determine what we valued and needed in potential candidates instead of wanting to ‘make a sale.’ They wanted to partner with us and our hiring process. They are top-notch!”

After screening resumes and completing the interview process, we did not feel comfortable with any of the candidates we met. We decided to look at a candidate from WilliamCharles. They presented an outstanding candidate for the position and we hired him immediately. We are excited about the impact he is already making on our organization.”

There’s a remarkable difference in working with WilliamCharles Search Group over any other agency. While they were searching for the very best candidates they actually became involved in our company as part of our hiring team of professionals. It is because of the level of commitment and thorough understanding of both our needs and those of each candidate that we have made WilliamCharles one of our elite, preferred vendors of choice.
RoMan Manufacturing, Inc, Robert W. Roth,
“WilliamCharles provided professional resources and invaluable guidance as we worked to fill the high profile President/CEO position of our not-for profit organization. As a volunteer Board of Directors and Search Committee, considering the confidentiality that must be maintained, managing the search process internally would not have been practical. WilliamCharles helped us to define the candidate criteria, worked with our staff so that we understood the operational culture of our organization, and prequalified the candidates that we considered. “
