How much do your services cost?

We work on a contingency search model for full-time, permanent hires (FTE).  This model is a pay-for-performance model which eliminates all risk for our clients.  We are only paid if you hire a candidate we present. Our typical fee (i.e., placement fee) is 23% of the employee’s first-year base salary.   

If the employee we place terminates for any reason other than layoff, reorganization or company sale within 90 calendar days from his/her start date, we will replace the employee at no additional charge.  

In situations where you need to grow your team with multiple hires in the same type of position (e.g., building an Inside Sales team), we can modify our fee structure to make it more economical for you.

What can I expect if I engage Switch Recruiting?


You may be using multiple resources to generate candidates including referrals, job postings and other staffing agencies.  We will still act as if we are solely responsible for filling your open positions.  This means we will update you multiple times per week and have a goal of 3-5 strong candidates submitted in the first seven business days.


Our goal is to help you build the largest possible candidate pool so you can select the best talent.  Here are other ways we help our clients:

  • Ensuring your job is priced competitively

  • Structuring the interview & evaluation process to ensure that everyone who interviews has a positive experience

  • Providing feedback about your employment brand in the market and managing your Glassdoor reviews

  • Ensuring your requirements create a large enough candidate population

  • Organizational structure - ensuring a match between job title and the job description

  • Suggesting target companies and position titles for the search strategy

Respect for Time

We realize that one of the reasons you engage a recruiting agency is to save time.  We also want to ensure that each candidate we represent for your open position(s) has a positive experience with both of our companies regardless of the outcome.  With this in mind, you can expect the following from Switch Recruiting:

  • A write-up with each submitted resume that details why we feel the candidate is appropriate based on the job description and our discussion

  • The candidate’s current job search activity (i.e., other interviews)

  • Any areas of concern with the candidate and potential fit with your company or position

  • Reasons for leaving prior employers

  • Facilitation and communication of the interview, offer or rejection process

  • Acting as point-of-contact for candidates in the interview process

  • Candidate pipeline reporting to help keep the search organized

Do you focus on a geographical area or company size?

We conduct searches across the U.S. including all major metropolitan areas.  Historically, a good portion of our searches are in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states.  Given our focus on SaaS Sales, we’ve been a go-to recruiting agency for a number of Startups and SMBs, although we work just as well with Sales divisions of larger Tech Companies.
