About Us

A premiere recruiting firm, Paradigm Staffing specializes in identifying, recruiting and placing top PR, communications, digital and marketing talent. We build long-lasting relationships with our clients; companies across the nation, in all industries and sizes, from Fortune 500 to start-ups and agencies.

What We Do

Successful companies are built by cohesive and intelligent teams of people. Skill is only one part of the equation. Finding the right “culture fit” is just as important.

Your company deserves the best talent but often these people are too busy being successful to notice that you have the perfect job for them. And usually, you and your your colleagues are focusing on producing outstanding work. That’s where we come in! Only focusing on the recruitment process and bringing together the right group of people is where the magic happens. We love being a part of developing those connections.

Transparency and consistent communication make all the difference in our relationship. We walk both sides through the hiring process. We help the candidate navigate the interview process and deal with the issues that come up when considering an important change. We work with our client to make sure they are considering the best talent in the industry, providing the information they need to make an acceptable offer and grow the team.

What We Believe

We believe that with the majority of our lives spent in the workplace, we all deserve to be in a role that makes us happy and fulfilled, working with people who inspire and uplift us. We believe finding the right team and organization can make going to work each day feel like a treasured gift.

Ensuring our candidates are working in enriching and positive environments is our top priority. We believe that while you choose your vendors, we also choose our clients.

We believe that the interview process can be intimidating and unfortunately your status is too often left in mystery. We are up front, transparent and responsive at every stage of the process, making sure you know what to expect. We support our candidates through every step, acting as career counselors and confidantes, providing guidance through these life changing decisions. Even when it doesn’t end up in an offer from our client, our counsel through the process helps lead to success in finding and landing your next role.
