Why consider Gary Richards Associates for your next career search?

We’re specialists in recruiting for HVAC, Refrigeration, Combustion and Building Automation (BAS) industries, and we know what hiring employers are looking for in candidates. Performing a job search can be overwhelming, even for a seasoned professional. If you’ve been in your job for a few years, you’ll find the job search process has very likely changed from the last time you looked for employment. We understand, and we can help. Because of our experience and connections, we are a “go to” recruiter for many hiring employers. Plus, we maintain your information in a database of candidates that we can pull from for future opportunities. We are just as likely to call you, instead of the other way around. And the hiring employer always pays the fee.

Why wouldn’t I just post my resume on a web-based service?

Most hiring managers and HR recruiters are too busy to waste time separating the wheat from the chaff on web career boards. It’s a big job to qualify and screen respondents, and many don’t have the staff to do it. On the other side, we‘ve been told by many candidates that they have been buried with emails from employers that have nothing to do with their career path.  Certainly some companies will place candidates from the web boards, but many qualified candidates get missed. Serious career candidates know better, especially if you want your job search to be confidential. In many cases, we are on a first-name basis with actual hiring managers, and we can make the actual decision maker aware of your availability.

What’s our process?

When you send in your resume to us, we’ll send you a detailed questionnaire unique to your career direction that will help us get to know you better, possibly including some technical questions that when answered could help enhance our presentation of your resume to employers. Then we’ll do our own in-depth telephone interview with you. Our notes and your information will be held in a secure database.

When we have a job opportunity that’s a good fit for you, we’ll call and review the specific position and your current status. If you and we agree to move forward, we will make a formal presentation on your behalf to the employer, with the intent of setting expectations with the employer for an excellent interview and hiring opportunity.

We will set up the initial telephone contact for you with the employer, and review your skills and interviewing strategy with you. After the telephone (or Zoom) interview with the employer, we will follow up with both you and the client to determine potential interest. If both parties agree, we will arrange an on-site interview, and subsequent follow-up.
