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.
Progressive AE, Jim Fox,
“After conducting a search for our CIO position, we received a great amount of qualified people. 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.”

“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.”
Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce,
“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.”

“I can’t say enough about what a great relationship it has been working with Michele Bishop. She has been able to find quality candidates for many management positions and knows the type of person we are looking for. I don’t waste time on candidates that don’t fit our qualifications. Candidates have told me that the only reason they decided to consider interviewing for our positions was because of Michele’s enthusiasm and approach. She’s able to encourage people to consider our openings even if they are content in their present position. Michele is very conscientious and always returns phone calls and emails the same day. She is a very hardworking, caring individual that knows her stuff!”
