Our Story

Every company has a story, and we’re no exception.

Here are the CliffsNotes: We got into this biz because we genuinely care about people. We also love the fast-paced nature of media and technology. Back when we were working in the industry ourselves, we realized there were far too few recruiters who really “got it.” We founded Jobdot to fill that void.

The key to surviving and thriving in this field comes down to one common denominator—relationships. Our goal is simple: We use our unparalleled industry expertise to facilitate meaningful client-candidate relationships. We don’t subscribe to the “cog in the machine” mentality. Instead, we believe in the power of new perspectives, complementary team dynamics and bold leadership.

We understand what it’s like on both sides of the fence—clients seeking top-notch talent and candidates looking for a career-defining role—and we strive to make the hiring process comfortable and transparent for all parties.

Our Code

Many of Jobdot’s clients are personal friends. We’ve grown our careers together, and we’ve watched the industry evolve side by side.

Professionally, they enlist us to help them build high-performing teams and lay the groundwork for exceptional company culture—the utmost show of confidence in our abilities to take their teams to the next level.

On the talent side of the equation, the candidates we represent trust us to find roles in which they can put their proclivities to use and let their personalities shine. They rely on our honed intuition to pair their skills with intellectually stimulating, supportive work environments.

Regardless of relationship status—personal, professional or a hybrid of the two—we make the following commitment to everyone we work with.

 

We Pledge
  • To put the needs of our clients and candidates before our own.
  • To ask thoughtful questions, listen and gain a complete understanding of both short-term and long-term career goals before discussing potential opportunities.
  • To respect that making a career move is a major life change, and to exercise patience throughout the journey.
  • To work exclusively with clients whose business models we understand—and whose values align with our own.
  • To manage client and candidate expectations and ensure utmost transparency and confidentiality.
  • To build working relationships founded upon mutual respect, honesty and integrity.
  • To never pressure clients or candidates at any point in the recruiting process.

For Candidates

We’re not here to help you find a job.

You might be thinking—wait a minute. Isn’t that the whole point of this “recruiting” thing?

Here’s the deal: We don’t want you to just find a job. We want to give you a title you’re proud to put on a resume for a company you can’t wait to name-drop at parties. We want to help you build a career.

We get that a professional move in the constantly evolving media/tech space can be daunting. It often feels like a full-time job in itself, full of jargon and tedium. We aim to create something a little more empathetic. After all, a fulfilling work environment is rooted in people—and the amazing things they can accomplish when they come together.

So stop job searching, and start setting a foundation for the career of a lifetime. It all starts with an intro—which is where we come in.

Our Services

You’ve heard the statistic before: We spend approximately 90,000 hours of our lives at work. Nobody wants to spend that much time anywhere, unless they feel inspired, happy and set up for success. That’s why we take our match-making services so seriously. Our job is to provide a foundation of trust upon which healthy client-candidate—and ultimately, employer-employee—relationships form and flourish.

Below are the services we offer to help you make the most of those 90,000 hours.

Contingency Recruiting:

For clients seeking to fill a niche role or who opt to use us on a contingency basis, we only charge for services after we’ve found and placed a qualified candidate.

Retained Search:

We also work on a retainer basis for organizations with intensive hiring needs. We’re fully committed to learning the ins and outs of our retainer clients’ organizations and figuring out what makes them tick.

Consulting:

Maybe your company is missing something—or someone—but you can’t quite pinpoint who, what, where or why. We bring more than two decades of experience to the table, and we’re more than happy to share our expert insights with you.

Commission Plan Consultation & Evaluation:

Having placed hundreds of sellers and sales leaders over the past 12+ years, we know everything there is to know about commission tiers and kickers, GP and true-ups, quotas and MBO’s.  We’ve advised dozens of companies on how best to structure comprehensive and fair commission and bonus plans.

Career Counseling:

Career advice is part of the package whenever we work with candidates. We’re one of the only search firms that works exclusively with media and technology professionals—so we know the intricacies of this sometimes turbulent (but never boring) industry. Wherever you are on your career development journey, we want to help you take the next step.
