Collaborating with REO Consultants
Did you apply for one of our positions? Curious about who REO Consulting is and what we do?
REO Consultants are retained talent acquisition specialists who act as an external HR representative for our clients. Our clients are established companies in a variety of industries, including healthcare, non-profits, real estate and business and consumer services, and more.
Unlike traditional recruiters we are not paid on contingency and we are not “competing” with other firms to fill the position. As retained talent acquisition consultants, we are paid a flat fee by our clients for our work, and we solely represent the company in the hiring process. We do not keep a database of candidates, nor will we ever interview candidates for jobs that do not exist. We know our clients well (we’ve worked with many of them for years!), so you can feel confident that we know all of the details of both the company and the position and can expertly evaluate if your skills and experience will be a great fit for the role.
While REO Consulting represents employers, we recognize that one of our most important commodities is our candidates. Focusing on pulling back the layers and getting to know the talent we engage with is our top priority. Our mission is to connect with people. Knowing what a candidate is seeking for their next career move is vital to ensuring that this is the right opportunity with the right employer. The REO Consulting process is unique – our purpose is to not simply fill an open position, but to mine the perfect fit for both the employer and the candidate.
“I really appreciate how gracious and communicative you’ve been throughout the process. I get the sense that you genuinely care about the people on both sides that you’re bringing together, which unfortunately is rate in the job search environment.”
