Harvey Hohauser & Associate process is a structured and pragmatic approach to ensure cultural and functional alignment between their clients’ company and the candidate.

SCOTT M. – PLACED AS CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER

I had the privilege of working with Harvey Hohauser & Associates as both a candidate and a client. As a candidate, I could immediately tell they were much more thorough and responsive than any other recruiting firm I had worked within the past. They spent a considerable amount of time getting to know me and my career to ensure I was the right cultural fit for the organization they were recruiting for.


They were excellent at continually providing communication throughout their process, provided candid feedback after my interviews with their client and the clients’ leadership team. I never had to guess where I stood in the process, and even though I wasn’t their client, they treated me as though I was.

PATRICK I. – PLACED AS VICE PRESIDENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES

Harvey Hohauser & Associates has served our organization extremely well in providing us with culturally aligned talent. Even more importantly, their real differentiation lies in their process and the treatment of candidate(s). Personally, I have now been on both ends of the talent pipeline. I am a happy client, but when I was a candidate, I was very impressed with how thorough and engaged the recruiting team was.


Their commitment to ensuring I had all the information I needed to feel comfortable that the role was a match was a pleasant surprise. Where many others make candidates feel like a number, I felt like I was being treated like a person, and this has proven to be a benefit to myself and the company I was lucky enough to join. The team at HH&A understands the value of cultural fit, to foster the alignment and productivity of the organization as well as the candidate placed.

SUSAN O. – PLACED AS PRESIDENT

I’ve had the rare opportunity to work with Harvey Hohauser & Associates as both a candidate and client in the context of an executive search. As a candidate, I’ve experienced HH&A’s judicious qualification process. I can speak to their method of authenticating, evaluating and interviewing a candidate to determine professional eligibility and culture fit. Equally as important, HH&A has a reciprocal approach for candidates, giving us equal opportunity to qualify our prospective company.


Successfully completing the search assessment and interview process, I was honored to be the preferred choice of six candidates presented to my employer. Over a 25-year career in executive management, I’ve never felt so well-suited for a leadership role. Our owner is very pleased with my addition to the company and I know that I’m effective in my role. How can I be sure? This information comes to me quarterly as part of the year-long check-in meetings conducted following placement. All part of a very thorough, well-executed recruiting process and steadfast commitment from HH&A to the lasting business relationship that ensues career placement.

BRIDGET D. – PLACED AS SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT OF SALES

The Harvey Hohauser & Associate team were very professional and respectful of my confidentiality. I was impressed with the research they put forward in presenting me with a company that was a perfect career transition. Changing corporations is not an easy decision, but the team at HH&A made sure I was properly prepared to make the transition and that I made the right decision.


I am overjoyed with my experience with the HH&A team, and my position with a company positioned for growth.

JASON G. – PLACED AS VICE PRESIDENT OF OPERATIONS

In my recent search for new employment, it was important for me to find something that not only fit my professional goals but also balanced those with my goals as a father and husband.  I was skeptical at best of recruiters and the recruitment process, feeling that many of the firms I had dealt with were more interested in filling a position than understanding exactly what was right for the candidate or company.  My experience at Harvey Hohauser & Associates changed my perception dramatically.  Their team took the time to understand me, my values, my family and my career & background.


They were extremely insightful, and their down to earth style immediately made me feel at ease.  It was also clear that they had the same deep understanding of the needs of their client, the company and its culture.  Through their process they were able to demonstrate to their client how I fit the position they were recruiting for, and also showed how I culturally aligned to the company and its leaders. I can confidently say that HH&A did such a great job with this process, that I will likely never be a candidate in their recruitment process again. However, as an executive, HH&A will be the first and only firm I call to fill my crucial leadership needs going forward.

KIMBERLY F. – CANDIDATE FOR VICE PRESIDENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES

I had the pleasure to work with Harvey Hohauser and Associates (HH&A). HH&A’s team contacted me regarding an executive-level position they were working to fill for a privately-owned business in Florida.
Working with the team at HH&A throughout the recruiting process was an enjoyable and professional experience. I have had many experiences working with recruiting firms as an HR leader, but this was my first time as a candidate, and I was very pleased with the process I went through. The level of professionalism, communication, authenticity, coaching and support given to me was impressive and allowed me to stay informed and connected.


While I was not the chosen candidate for their position, I could not have asked for a better experience. I met several great leaders through this process and have new friends with the team at HH&A.


HH&A is a first-class organization. I wouldn’t hesitate to be a candidate in their process again!

SUSAN K. – CANDIDATE FOR VICE PRESIDENT OF SALES OPERATIONS

As an applicant working with the team at Harvey Hohauser & Associates (HH&A), I can attest to their highly effective and professional process when supporting candidates. Their dedication, candor and unique process enables their clients to see beyond the resume – something we candidates cannot do unless we are lucky enough to get that first interview. They do not ‘place’ candidates, they match candidates with cultures, positions and companies where all can excel and contribute.


Too often, companies hire a candidate, or a candidate accepts a position that is not a good fit. The HH&A team is dedicated to mitigating this result. I have been extremely pleased with how their team has represented me as a candidate in their process.


It is true that the hiring manager is their client. However, I always felt like I was their client in the process. Two words come to mind when I think of HH&A: integrity and respect. That says it all.

MIKE M. – CANDIDATE FOR CHIEF ENGINEER

I had the pleasure to work with Harvey Hohauser & Associates from the candidate side of the search process. From the initial interview, I knew that I was working with a special organization that understood the intimacy required for a successful recruitment and placement process. Their team invested a significant amount of time through multiple phone conversations and direct, face-to-face interviews to truly understand my background, character, values, and capabilities. Through the process developed and deployed by Harvey Hohauser & Associates, we were able to reach an explicit understanding of the type of environment and culture I would thrive in. Armed with this information, the HH&A team was able to articulate and demonstrate my cultural alignment, career history, and background to their client. I was impressed with their preparation and diligence to ensure their client holistically understood my candidacy.

NICHOLE F. – CANDIDATE FOR GLOBAL VICE PRESIDENT OF PURCHASING

I have had the honor of going through the Harvey Hohauser & Associates (HH&A) recruitment process twice. While I have spent several years building global teams it was my first time to sit on the other side of the table, in over a decade. Interviewing can be an extremely humbling experience, but the HH&A team make the process and office extremely welcoming, comfortable and positive.  During the process, the HH&A team provided clear briefings of not only what the role entails, the role scope and responsibilities but also the challenges of the role and the company overall. They clearly explain the company culture and values. This detailed, customized approach allowed me to have the insight to prepare thoughtful examples of my experiences that would be relevant. It also allowed me to prepare thoughtful questions that I wanted to ask during the interview process. Overall, they provide a personalized approach to finding the correct match, that is primarily focused on cultural alignment between the candidate and the company. The commitment they make in getting to know their clients on a deep level results in their ability to create a long-term match.


I would welcome the opportunity to be considered as a candidate in their process for a future search.

DANIEL A. – PLACED AS PRESIDENT

It has been my pleasure to work with Harvey Hohauser & Associates in many ways over the past decade. I have been both a job search candidate and a business leader who has reviewed different potential roles for the Hohauser team to fill. As a candidate I was placed in a senior leadership position for a family owned consumer products company where I served for almost a decade. As a business leader I was able to utilize the HH&A firm on several occasions to discuss strategies to fill open roles. The HH&A team maintains a high degree of professionalism combined with experience which they utilize to execute a well-structured and organized candidate placement process. Through this process they clearly identify the key needs of a business, help the client and the candidate seek an optimal fit, and consistently drive strategies that are good for all parties. They do all of this with the utmost of integrity and skill! It is clear to me that their years of experience and their high standards set them apart in the services that they provide the market.

I recently had the pleasure of working with HH&A as a candidate—a successful candidate as it turned out, but I would honestly say “pleasure” regardless. From the very first phone call, it was evident that this process was focused on more than just whether I had the requisite skill and experience to do the job. Of course, education, credentials, work experience and business accomplishments are important and part of the initial gating to ensure you are in fact qualified for the position. But where other firms may stop there if their goal is simply to present qualified candidates, for HH&A and the companies that hire them, being qualified quickly becomes secondary as you advance in the process. Far more attention in the HH&A process is paid to the intangibles-- whether it would be a good “fit” for both the company and the candidate. This emphasis on reciprocal fit encourages meaningful conversations throughout the process, rather than rigid interviews. At the end, I believed I had a true picture of the company and the people working there, and they had one of me so that when I did make a choice, I was very comfortable that it was the right opportunity and that I could contribute in a meaningful way. Equally important, I knew I would be happy with the change and that has certainly proven to be true.
Let me just add too that the people at HH&A are also great at the fundamentals. They timely and effectively communicate with you throughout the entire process. They know the companies they work with and help candidates understand them as well. The company insights you receive are perceptive and the feedback provided to you is thorough, direct and respectful. They made what could otherwise be a stressful process, very comfortable.
