Now is the time to change recruiting


Distinguished Search launched February 2020.

We don't do everything.  

Our clients retain us to find technology, engineering, digital, data and product talent.  

We're selective in who we work with.

You deserve a premium experience.  We restrict our capacity so we focus on what's important.  

We only work with clients we believe in.  This is a journey we're taking together.

  • Weeks 1-2: Recruit. Calibration stage. 30-minute assessment calls to determine candidates' initial interest, fit, motivation, compensation expectations. Discuss candidates with client to calibrate.
