Frequently Asked Questions

What type of recruiting solutions do you offer?

We primarily look at ourselves as direct hire recruiters because we enjoy seeing people long-term with our clients. Along with direct hire we do place job seekers in temporary and temp-to-hire positions. Our recommendation generally is to select the direct hire route because you will be able to hire the most qualified candidate in the marketplace the vast majority of the time. Our firm will work with clients on a contingency or retained basis.

When were you founded?

We opened our doors in March 2008.

What areas of recruiting do you specialize in?

The large majority of our positions are in Accounting & Finance, Information Technology, Human Resources and Operations. This though does not mean we haven’t had success with positions outside these departments, and we define Operations very broadly so we’re used to taking on a wide range of positions. We’re the one stop shop recruiting solution for many of our clients.

If I work with the Clay Burnett Group, what should I expect?

First class service. We know what it’s like to be on the other side of the desk whether you’re an employer or job seeker. Our firm is out to treat people how every person deserves to be treated. We go above and beyond to achieve the results we strive for everyday. We’re proud of our work and will always aim to exceed expectations.

What is a Headhunter?

It’s a term used often to describe what we do. Another descriptive catch phrase is Executive Recruiter. Headhunting is essentially the general process of searching for individuals to fill certain positions within different companies and organizations. By working outside the walls of these established entities we’re able to act as recruiters leveraging a wide range of search techniques in order to achieve desired results.

As an employer, why should I use a recruiting firm?

Everybody knows that you can post jobs online and try to do the job yourself. Just like home repairs however, the process can quickly get very complicated! We do our job so that you can focus on your job. Quality over quantity is key to maximizing time and achieving success in recruiting.

How long does the typical process take?

Depends on what you’re looking for. Some interview processes are quick while others require time. If you’re an employer and need to hire someone quick in an efficient process, we will expedite on our end by making it a priority search. We do everything in our power to meet timelines. It’s very possible to hire or be hired within a two to four week window. It all depends on your needs and desires.

What cities are you familiar with?

Since California is our home, we’re very familiar with the state and when we’re recruiting, commute times are always something we consider. We’re also experienced taking on searches for positions with clients located across the United States as well as internationally.

What are your office hours?

Generally there’s a recruiter in our office from 8am to 7pm during any typical weekday. In the world of recruiting with interviews happening at all sorts of times it’s quite possible someone here could be working at 6am or 9pm. It all depends on what’s going on. We have lofty goals so we put in the time to achieve the results our clients have come to expect.

Do you offer internships?

At this time we focus on full-time positions.
