Low Cost Recruiting              Policies and Methodologies

PMC's policies and methodologies are based on providing the best possible service at a very competitive price.


PMC recruiting is completely success based: If the client hires someone PMC sends to them, then PMC gets paid per the formula below. If we fail to find a candidate, or the client does not choose to hire anyone that we do send, then the client owes nothing, no matter how much work we may have done in our search. We only get paid upon successfully placing a candidate with a client.

Our procedure works like this:

  1. The client will be asked to sign a short (1-2 page) contract agreeing to the process described below.  Note that no monies have been committed to change hands at this point.  Once signed, a lead PMC associate will be assigned to the client.

  2. The lead PMC associate has a series of conversations with various members of the organization. The purpose will be to understand the key needs of the organization and to learn more details about the opening (responsibilities, location, why the position is open, the pay range, etc.). We also try to get a feel for the culture of the company so we can find a good fit. It is not uncommon to have a series of short conversations over the first few days as we begin to narrow choices.

  3. The PMC associate will develop a short description of the assignment to be approved by the client prior to commencement of the search.  This is to ensure there is a clear understanding of the skills and qualities needed for the assignment. PMC will reach out through our network to look for suitable candidates and we will screen them to find the ones that we feel are most likely to be a good fit. We do not tell the candidates the name of the client at this point.

  4. Once qualified candidates are identified, we will forward a few selected resumes (generally without names and contact information) to the client for review, along with notes and information gained through the interview process. For those the client feels are a good fit, we will send the complete resumes and notify the applicant of the client's interest.

  5. At this point, the process turns over to the client. The client does the remainder of the interviewing and the client's HR department does any reference and/or fact checking the client feels is necessary.

  6. When the client is ready to hire, they will negotiate directly with the candidate in regards to terms.

  7. PMC receives a fee equal to 9% of the first year's salary, payable upon hire. There are no credit terms.

Note:  Some firms choose a "Rent to Own" process where the candidate starts with a short term contract and is hired on an ongoing basis when the client is sure they have the right candidate.
