Information for Your Job Hunt - Databases and Directories - Used by Resume Writers, Outplacement Firms, Career Coaches, College Career Centers, and Individuals Since 1987/

Job hunters need to do many things to get a job - - call all their friends and relatives, answer ads, and send out hundreds, even thousands of letters and resumes in a targeted direct email, direct fax or direct snail mail campaign. Our online databases and directories are designed to help you in that last task - to get your personal cover letter and resume to the executive search firms that specialize in your field.

Executive search firms work to fill management positions at top companies across the U.S. and abroad. It is estimated that almost two-thirds of executive positions are filled by executive search firms. Personnel agencies work to fill professional, technical, and administrative personnel at companies. The search firms and agencies in our database are hired and paid by companies that need new employees.

Our Directories of Search Firms and Recruiters are drawn from our database of more than 16,000 search firms and personnel agencies and more than 38,000 key contacts. The directories contain descriptive information about each search firm and recruiter in its category and contain the contact information that you can easily use to contact these recruiters.

The directories list companies alphabetically by name with multiple offices of the same firm listed alphabetically by city.

Custom Databanks has been selling headhunting (and many other) databases and lists since the 1980s. They are one of the most reputable data warehouses around.

Some of the web reviews that trash these directories as "just sales brochures for their lists" are not correct. They even state that CD removes contact info. These are both untrue! Don't believe me, just use the wonderful Amazon/publisher look inside feature– full profiles and contact data is given. Now there ARE many more lists on their DBMS, including city by city cuts, etc. and you likely will want to actually buy some of these lists in your niche with the discount code you get with this purchase. But that's certainly not necessary to get a lot of value from these pubs. This particular one focuses on jobs at 50K or better, but come on, that's base entry level for programmers with even basic skills! "Big Data" starting salaries are now North of 120K at a lot of firms.

If you're looking to change jobs or hire, obviously networking comes first, but this is a close second. I have nothing to do with this company, but have used them successfully to recruit in some VERY narrow niches like robotics and digital art programming. Their reps are really customer responsive, and mine even helped find an extremely specialized group of candidate recruiters in tutorial software. Highly recommended for candidates, IT managers and of course headhunters specializing in engineering and IT.
