Scouts and more
Our team works like a retained firm in the sense we actively scout the people you want to hire. We work like we’re on your payroll, yet clients only pay when we get the result. Count on these professionals to work with you toward your goals as one of your own staff members. We regularly hear from clients and candidates citing us as standouts among third party search firms, regarding professionalism and responsiveness. Integrity and sound ethics are important to us. It has been a critical component of our history and will never change.
Pamela Witzig, Founder and Recruiter
Pam accidentally discovered a love of recruiting early in her otherwise employment agency career. Back in the days applicants paid fees for placement with “employment agencies.” From there, she simply took it toward her bent for creative and appreciation for advertising and marketing communications and found her market. Pam has a passion for finding and placing the pieces to fill in a puzzle. It’s why her group hunts rather than gathers (job seekers). Her only frustration is that annoying little 24 hour day that limits the possibilities of how much can be covered in a mere seven day week. Oh – and people in the industry who call themselves recruiters but post ads and sift job boards.
Though founder of Witzig Group (in 1986 as Witzig & Associates), she is not one to be a mere figurehead. Pam enjoys rolling up her sleeves to do the work and is very much a hands-on recruiter.
She loves art deco, travel, ballroom dancing, entertaining, family, a bold red, and all the challenges her clients can bring.
Pam keeps a hand in all client side and agency marketing disciplines as well.
Betty Tomaski, Recruiter
Betty has great enthusiasm and determination for finding talent and finessing a transaction. Her eclectic work history combines recruiting, counseling and human resources. She provides professionalism, warmth, compassion and integrity. Betty is fearless. She readily takes on recruiting challenges, digs in for the long haul and truly cares about the right fit.
As a Recruiter at Thrivent Financial, she cut her recruiting teeth placing Financial Services positions by sourcing, developing networks and relationships. She knows how to do “the hard stuff” of sourcing passive candidates.
Betty is truly driven to make all parties no less than delighted when it’s all said and done.
