FAQ

What is Paradigm’s specialty?

We specialize in placing public relations, corporate communications and marketing professionals. We fill positions at all levels: from the account executive to general manager and executive vice president at agencies, and junior to senior management positions for corporations.

Where and how do you find candidates?

We’ve worked hard to build our network of communications and marketing professionals, and we use it to find the right candidate for your company. Our long-term relationships with PR and communications experts means we can  find candidates that you might not otherwise find through traditional print and online advertising for a position.

What types of companies do you work with?

Our clients are public relations and integrated marketing communications agencies, as well as corporations of all sizes, and in a wide variety of industries including technology, consumer, financial services, government, non-profit, lifestyle, healthcare, food & beverage and others.

Do you guarantee your searches?

Yes. If a candidate we place with your company is terminated within our guarantee period, we will replace him or her at no cost to you.

What type of service agreements do you offer?

We strive to tailor our solutions to fit your needs and offer retained, contingency and monthly project retainers.

Our retained search option gives you dedicated time and resources to help you with your search, and allows you to pay for services over time.

With our contingency service, we work on any or all of your current staffing needs as they arise. You are billed only once you have hired a candidate from us.

Our monthly project retainer is an option for companies that need a full-time, dedicated recruiting resource to fill multiple positions over time. During this contract period, you will be charged a monthly fee and a small percentage per candidate placement, saving you thousands of dollars in contingency or retained search fees.

Do candidates pay a fee for your services?

No, candidates never pay a fee to work with us. Our clients always pay our service fees to find top talent to join their organizations.
