  • What makes Kyra’s recruitment process unique?

    At Kyra, we see more than just a resume, we see a person with professional and personal goals. We talk with candidates at length and gain as much information about their experience and background as possible to ensure the job opening is in line with their expertise and personality, prior to submitting a candidate for a position. We work with candidates on their interviewing skills and give resume assistance. Even if an applicant does not walk away with a job, we help candidates improve their marketability and interviewing skills.

  • How do we find the perfect opportunities for potential employees?

    Kyra takes extra time to get to know each consultant’s desires and career aspirations. We aren’t just trying to fill a position. We speak to the consultants multiple times to get a clear understanding of their professional goals and long term plans. After understanding these motivations, we fit them into the project that is right for them. We are very transparent if we think that a particular position won’t be a good fit for a potential employee. The last thing we want to do is put a consultant into a position that only suits our needs and the clients, but doesn’t take into account a potential employees’ desires.
