“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.”

“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. Most importantly they helped us select the best candidate and worked within an aggressive time schedule.”

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.
Michele was very professional yet personable in her approach. I liked her collaborative style. She continued to dig for candidates and was patient with us when we changed the requirements for the background and experience we were looking for. Great Job! We are pleased with our hire so far.
