Redell Search, Inc.
John Redell, has been a search consultant since 1986. He started his own and first recruiting firm with a partner in Chicago in 1990. It flourished until the opening of Redell Search in 1996. John prides himself on the fact that he gives very personalized service and actually goes out on the "hunt" himself for the elusive candidate. Each search is treated as a new and special project.
The title "HEADHUNTER" is often gratuitously adopted by some within the employment industry. Many that understand the real intended meaning of the word don't view it as a slur. Recruiters like John Redell view this title as a "badge of honor" because it suggests that real search is done by this person. Many in the employment industry adopt the title headhunter when in reality they are in fact just "Head-farmers". "Head-farmers" don't do active research and/or cold calling to accomplish their mission. Head-farmers primarily use advertisements to attract candidates and in essence operate as advertising campaign managers. In fact and ironically, the seemingly benign usage of the word "agency" can be more offensive.
What's the point? Sometimes the best candidate isn't "looking" and they must be HUNTED! Sometimes there's a need for a "silent search" where discretion is paramount and advertising can't be done.
When you need to find the hard to find candidate, we're the ones to call.
