Case Study

Company Size:
Mid-Large (500+ employees)

Industry:
Real Estate

Location:
Great Minneapolis, St. Paul Area

Problem:
For over three months, the company had been working with their internal and external recruiting agencies. But, they only saw a handful of resumes - none of which fit the ideal candidate profile.

The Story:
A mid-sized business who specializes in the real estate industry needed to find an executive-level marketer to lead their team. The company was working with their internal recruiters and with an external recruiting firm to fill the role.

After three long months of searching, the hiring managers had only seen a handful of resumes in which none of the candidates fit the ideal candidate profile. They needed additional help filling the role quickly. Fortunately, Nick Burns (Executive Recruiter at Celarity), reached out at the perfect time. The firm decided to hire Celarity because they were hyper-focused in the marketing, creative, and digital space. And, after nearly 30 targeted candidate reach outs, Celarity qualified and met with 4 candidates. Of those 4 candidates, 3 were passed along to the client who decided to interview all of them.

In the end, the client hired their new executive-level employee after only one week of Celarity’s search efforts. Since the firm hired their executive-level marketer, Celarity has been able to fill two additional roles quickly with candidates who fit their culture and needs. The company has requested to use Celarity’s services exclusively for all future marketing recruiting needs.

Solution:

The company hired the firm that is hyper-focused in the marketing, creative, and digital space: Celarity. And, after nearly 30 targeted reach outs, Celarity qualified and met with 4 candidates. Of those candidates, 3 were passed along to the client who decided to interview all of them. In the end, the client hired their new executive-level employee after only a week of Celarity’s search efforts.

Type of Celarity Service Used:

Executive Recruiting - Contingent Search

Results:

Celarity was asked 3 weeks later to conduct a similar search in the Orlando, FL market and filled that role within 2 weeks.

Following the successful placement of both positions within two months, the client informed Celarity that they would be using them exclusively for all of their future marketing staffing needs.

The client has since reached out to Celarity for help on a 3rd marketing related search.
