Clients FAQ's

Why should I consider using Ober Consulting's services?

It is well documented that working with a quality search firm as a career partner has several major advantages. Finding qualified staff is a labor-intensive process that puts substantial pressure on an already overburdened critical asset - "time". Managers already have their hands full managing multiple daily activities.

When the burden of recruiting and hiring is added to an already crowded set of responsibilities, it can detract from a manager's ability to achieve their corporate objectives. Working with a qualified career partner like Ober Consulting takes the burden of the recruiting process off of internal staff and allows an organization to focus on its core business.

Additionally, when all the high-dollar management man-hours involved in attaining new talent without the assistance of a qualified career partner are considered, it is equally obvious that there are substantial cost-savings per hire as an added benefit of partnership with a firm like Ober Consulting.
