The Mission Methodology

Serving Companies

The better we understand your company — its services, products, values and culture — the better we can serve your needs. We amplify and expand your recruitment and application process with our expertise. We help you precisely define the skills and experience candidates must possess, and provide comparative compensation insights for determining competitive salaries and benefits.

Assisting Job-Seekers

The best way for Mission to find a position that’s just right for you means getting to know who you are. You don’t just want a particular job, you want it with a company whose corporate culture aligns with your values and personality. When working with job-seekers, we establish a full understanding of your career goals — both immediate and long-term. We don’t just identify job openings that fit your requirements, we help with your resume, prep you for interviews and advise you when negotiating a salary and benefits.

Although we start by reviewing our extensive proprietary candidate database along with a variety of competitive online search tools, we primarily concentrate on recruiting passive candidates — highly qualified people who are likely employed but ripe for advancement.
