How much will this cost?
The answer to this question is: it depends. We offer a range of search options and fee structures. For the most part, once we successfully place a candidate, we take a percentage of their first-year salary. We also offer flat rate searches, contract arrangements, and hourly consulting services. We pride ourselves on being flexible, creative, and accommodating in every aspect of our business; that includes our fees. Cost has never been the reason a client opted out of our services and that’s important to us.
Why should I pay you rather than just doing this myself?
This is one of our favorite questions; it’s a really important one. You should absolutely try to do the search on your own, make use of your existing networks and connections, and look to fill your company’s need from within your current team. If that is not successful, or takes too much time, consider outsourcing this important function to us. When we need to do our taxes, while we could certainly do it ourselves, we outsource it to an accounting firm. All they do is accounting. Well, we’re a recruiting firm. All we do is recruit talent. When you need to hire, we think that you’ll be happy if you call us.
How long will the search take?
As a general rule, we will have candidates to present seven to ten days after you engage our search. However, because all of our searches are collaborative efforts with our clients, our timeline is also contingent on your feedback and responsiveness.
What if I don’t like the people that you find?
We will continue sourcing, interviewing, and presenting candidates until you find the best fit for the role. The feedback you give us throughout the process will help us refine our sourcing and interviewing until we find “the one.”
What if I hire one of your people and it doesn’t work out?
In our experience, employers know within a week or two whether or not a new employee is a fit. Treehouse Partners offers a 60-day guarantee on all candidates we place. That means that if you decide within those 60 days that things aren’t working out, we will re-engage our search at no additional cost.
Job Seekers faqs
How much does it cost?
Our services are completely free to candidates. As a job seeker, all you need to do is register, create a profile, and submit your resume. Once you’ve completed that process, your work history, skills, and interests become searchable in our database and we will contact you as we find roles that best match your qualifications.
What kind of candidates are you looking for?
Treehouse Partners specializes in placing job seekers in fulfilling, flexible, challenging roles from senior-level staff on up to the “C Suite”. We place into a variety of business functions, including strategy, marketing, accounting, sales, finance, legal, HR, and operations.
How does the process work?
Once you’ve completed your profile here, keep an eye on our recent job postings and apply to roles that look like they may be a match. We review every resume that’s submitted for every job, and will reach out to you directly to schedule an interview if we agree that you are a fit for the position. We try to keep the status of the searches up-to-date on the site, so keep an eye out there if you’re wondering what stage in the search we’re currently working on. There is no need to email or call us directly to inquire about the status of your application.
How long should I expect to wait to hear from you after I apply to a job?
As you can imagine, this varies from search to search, depending on, among other things, the client’s timeline, the volume of resumes received, and the length of the interview process. We may contact you within minutes of receiving your application, other times it can be a month or longer. We commit to letting everyone know one way or another at some point… but can’t guarantee a specific window for any given search.
I have a different resume and a cover letter I’d like to submit for a specific job… how do I do that?
You can upload multiple files to your profile on www.thetreehousepartners.com. If you have multiple versions, please label your resumes and cover letters by the job you’d like it considered for, for example: J_Smith_Accounting Manager, J_Smith_Controller.
