Referral Etiquette

It’s “Who may be Qualified?”, not “Who may be Looking?”
After more than nineteen years of representing and placing accounting and finance professionals, we know that when someone is in the midst of exploring or contemplating making a career move, they don’t usually tell too many colleagues or peers. When we ask for referrals, people often respond with “I don’t know anyone whose looking right now”. And that would be the correct answer if we wanted to know “whose looking”. We really don’t expect you to know whose currently looking. What we’re asking is “who do you know that’s qualified?” Whether they are currently looking is not important. If they are and you refer them, you just may be on your way to a big “thank you” from them and big Referral Fee from us. If they are not currently looking, but are qualified, this just might be the opportunity they would be open to.

All our referral contacts are kept in the strictest confidence. When you refer us a candidate, we will always keep your identity confidential unless you direct us otherwise.





“I cannot thank you enough for your assistance through the entire hiring process.  I mentioned to Joe what a benefit it was helping you guide me through this process, as well as what a benefit it is from the Pepsi side having someone talk with a potential candidate to confirm and clarify feedback from Pepsi.  Joe mentioned that you had assisted them with a previous candidate, which you had also mentioned to me, and that the CFO was very impressed with you and the service you provided.”
