PIVOTAL VS. THE OTHER GUYS

Pricing Case Study

We use a completely unique pricing model in the recruiting world. Most agencies charge a percentage of the salary for the position you’re looking to fill (usually around 20%). This means when hiring a position with a $100,000/year salary – you’ll pay $20,000 in recruiting fees. Yikes!

 

Pivotal charges per hour based on the industry and position to be filled. We work faster (and smarter) to deliver results and you’ll only pay for the time we spend searching on your behalf – no matter how high the salary. This means huge savings for our clients (YOU!).
