Why Hire Headwaters Search to Fill Your Twin Cities Recruitment Needs?

One word: results.

Really, it’s that simple. We get results.

How do we do this? By specialization, and a decidedly firm commitment to NOT be all things to all people.

Headwaters Search specializes in three distinct types of professionals. Technical Sales, Engineering & Operations,  and Accounting & Finance Professionals. That’s it – we don’t engage in any other types of search and placement. And while we know that limits how many people contact us over a given day, it also ensures that every engagement and action by us is tightly focused on filling those specific needs for the Twin Cities based companies who hire us. We know these types of positions backwards and forwards, and better still, we know who can effectively fill them. The cherry on top? We’re well-versed in the local landscape and business community / executive recruitment. Minneapolis-St. Paul is unique, and we love it, but it isn’t for everyone. So we’ll make sure your candidate is a fit for you and our one-of-a-kind area as well.

You could say we’re a master of three trades, and parted ways with Jack a few decades ago (he didn’t like the cold.)

Our track record is exceptional. 70% of the candidates we place have established 4+ year careers with their new companies, and 40% of them have been promoted to leadership positions. Our ROI is off the charts.
