The Secret Sauce

It’s all about meeting revenue goals, not finding resumes.

The secret sauce to finding “A” players is to focus on the end goal(s), what the candidate is expected to accomplish. Traditional hiring focuses on experience and credentials. This approach shifts the focus away from what it is you’re trying to get done to an arbitrary set of perceived success measurements. At A Sales Guy Recruiting, our approach maps your goals and objectives to the capabilities of the candidates, thereby ensuring they can actually DO what you need them to do.

“A” Players are hard to find. “A” Players that can actually deliver what you need delivered, well, that’s an even greater challenge.

  • We know where to find the best talent. The best are happily employed and we know where to find them.
  • We can build you a killer “A” Player profile that gets salespeople who can make the numbers, not just a pretty resume.
