  • I have used ARI for 10+ years. They have developed a customized approach to meet my and the Company’s needs. They have focused on my personality and the culture of the Company in order to find the best match for our staffing needs. Not only do they match skill sets, but people skills also. They are “in the know” for people in the area, thus I have confidence my needs will always be met.

  • Accounting Resources did an outstanding job in working with us to find the right person for our Assistant Controller. Before we talked to ARI, we had gone through two people in this position in less than a year. ARI took a genuine interest in our business. They helped us define the position and then they found the perfect candidate to fill the position. I would highly recommend ARI.

  • We were impressed from our initial meeting with ARI, that they were not only interested in assisting us with conducting this search' but also about getting to know the culture of our company, the work environment and the personality of our department. They did a great job in screening candidates based on matching skills, culture and personality based upon our initial meeting. ARI provided candid, objective advice when presenting candidates and asked smart questions that helped us focus on our true needs.

  • Over the last 4 years, I have enjoyed working with Accounting Resources, Inc. as both an individual seeking a new opportunity and a client looking for a good match to open positions. Accounting Resources has provided quality candidates who are extremely qualified. They are easy to work with to get the right fit for the open position. During the search, they seek feedback to ensure they are on the right path. They follow up but are not too pushy.

    Our Process

    Our quality standards apply also in terms of service,
    Needs Analysis / Gathering Information
    We listen to what you need. We want to know more than simply the job duties, we want to hear what would make a candidate “the perfect match.” Each position has its own nuances, we need to understand what it takes to be successful in each position.
    Of course a thorough job description is critical to any successful search. But beyond the skills / duties, we like to hear from the hiring manager the specifics that make a difference. The work/life balance and the company culture all contribute to defining the requirements. Gathering the data helps ensure finding the best person for each position.
    Search / Screen / Qualify
    Our candidate tracking system includes comprehensive information on candidates who are not actively searching for a new job but are receptive to entertaining just the right opportunity. We know who they are; where they are; and what it would take to interest them to take the next step in their career. Job boards don't find great candidates; we find great candidates. We stay active in social media, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter to keep in tune with candidates.
    Our face to face interviewing process enables us to precisely match qualifications, cultural fit, and long-term compatibility, and it ensures lasting and successful placements. Time is money, and you want candidates who are ready and able to tackle the challenges you face. We agree, and we only consider candidates who can deliver the financial, operational, and managerial results you require.
    Upon completion of our identification / screening and evaluation processes, we provide you a detailed summary of the best candidates, as well as guidance about how best to proceed. The candidates we present have the technical and functional abilities required for each position. But we don't stop there. We present candidates who demonstrate strong interpersonal skills and the ability to thrive in a team environment that matches your culture. We want the candidates we present to be the future leaders of your organization.
    We thoroughly vet and pre-qualify every candidate for your consideration. We present the top candidates and arrange interviews for each candidate you select. We gather feedback from both “sides” and provide assistance at every step of the way. We work closely with both you and the candidate throughout the interview process to ensure the right hire is made. You’re never alone; we’re here to make the hiring process more efficient and with the best long term result.
    Offer & Negotiations
    We understand negotiations can be challenging & sometimes stressful; we are committed to offering guidance throughout the process. Our team manages expectations, maintains open communications with you and the candidates, and facilitates the negotiation process through to its successful completion. Everyone is treated professionally; and our recruiters are well equipped with the knowledge, experience, and tools necessary to ensure long-term satisfaction.
    Follow up
    You succeed; We succeed. Recruiting shouldn't be transactional. For us, it's a long term partnership that's measured by genuine, mutual success. After an offer is accepted, we will assist with the candidate's transition to your company - from the resignation process, through the start date and post-start evaluation, to on-going follow up. We provide a trustworthy and personal point of contact throughout the entire process.
