A common misconception is that we find work for folks who are not good enough to find their own. This is very not true.
The job we do at Sqrft is to find the sharpest talent available to meet the needs of our client companies. We are not social workers. Rather, we sort through mountains of resumes, we quantify experience, we ask hard questions, and insist on proper answers.
We make hard decisions for recommendations. The decisions we make impact people’s lives and companies’ bottom line.
We make policies and enforce them. You might have 80 contract-to-hire folks collecting a paycheck. What happens when someone is late for work or simply chooses to not show up at all?
We go it alone. There is no roadmap for what we do. Our job is to make recommendations for really good connections—but we’re dealing with people, not widgets. Each one is vastly different. Each situation is vastly different. The only constant is the result we are looking for.
Management personalities do this job best.
What I am looking for in this Manager-Personality Recruiter
- The ability to type without looking at your fingers. It’s a deal breaker if you can’t.
- Management experience. Ideally, someone who has hired and fired.
- The confidence to be open and transparent—unafraid to be you. How can we ask it of our client, if we are incapable ourselves?
- The courage to make mistakes as part of the learning process. Our product is people. The answers are infinite.
- Exposure to the construction industry.
- Some life experience. Being able to empathize is critical. It’s far easier to empathize once you have experienced some stuff.
HR experience or recruiting experience. I am a carpenter by trade. I started this company 20 years ago because I saw a need and knew I could fill it. What I know about this business I have learned mostly just by trying things and seeing what worked and what didn’t. I expect nothing less from my staff.
In it for you?
“The culture at Squarefoot is one I don’t think you will find anywhere else. A small office environment where your skills, personality and voice are all recognized. As a small business, adaptability is key. There is not a streamlined specific process, which may be hard for some people to work within. But if you are creative, like to learn a different way of doing things and constantly be challenged, then this is an amazing place to work. It is far from a ‘corporate culture’ in that you won’t have black and white definitions of your job. You will work hard here, harder than you would someplace else. But what you take with you is the pride in being part of a team with a goal greater than it’s parts, Helping people find better careers that they would not necessarily find on their own.” ~on indeed.comApply now
