We love that our clients and candidates cite us as standouts among third party search firms, regarding professionalism and responsiveness. It seems to have gotten lost in the age of big automated platforms. Integrity and sound ethics are important here.
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 took it toward her bent for creative and appreciation for advertising and marketing communications and found her niche. She founded Witzig & Associates at a tender young age (she realizes now) and in 2006 renamed us Witzig Group.
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). To her, “recruit” has never meant posting jobs and sifting job boards. She learned early on that posting (in publications like Adweek and Advertising Age in those days) did not draw the best talent. Those people are on the job somewhere doing what her clients need done. They aren’t watching job posts. She enjoys rolling up her sleeves to do the work and is very much a hands-on recruiter.
In 2018 she brought Witzig Group from the standard model in play when “Stalking the Headhunter” was published (the year she started the business) to one of setting strategy on searches and employing search associates to conduct research and outreach rather than staff recruiters.
Pam is addicted to ballroom dancing. She loves entertaining friends & family, travel, a bold red, and all the challenges her clients can bring.
