For Candidates

The Paragon Difference

As you may know, the large majority of available job opportunities are not listed in newspapers, trade journals, or at job fairs. But when you partner with Paragon Recruiting, you have an on-line link to some of the hottest jobs in West Michigan! We identify the companies that meet your career expectations and market your skills directly to them. By partnering with our client companies, we understand their long-term plans and know the type of people they hire, before there’s a posted opening.

Your guide to a new job:

  • Send us your résumé by clicking here.
  • We’ll thoroughly review your résumé and then audit our Current Openings.
  • After comparing your qualifications to our open positions, we’ll discuss specific opportunities that meet your needs. When we find a match, we’ll ask if you’re interested and, with your permission, submit your resume.
  • If we don’t find a match right away, we’ll keep your résumé in our database, which is thoroughly searched every time we receive a new job opening. We will contact you again to confirm your interest and availability before submitting your résumé.
  • We have many client companies with whom we partner, keeping them always aware of top talent. These are firms we’ll initiate conversations with to see how timing might be for adding staff based on industry or technology expertise that would be valuable to them.
    We believe in helping candidates improve their probability of a successful career move.

When you approach an interview with preparation and thoughtful questions you’ll be in a better position for taking things to the next step in the interviewing process. It’s vital to consider what’s important to you in a new position or company and to develop questions that will help you determine if it’s the right company and opportunity for you. We’ll work together on developing an interview strategy to get the best long-term results: the right fit for you and the employer.

All fees are paid by our client companies, not our candidates.
