A Southern California contract Life Sciences R&D Firm with a strong growth trajectory needed entry-level talent to continue processing the heavy workload of new business.
Entry-level Biology majors would enjoy the diverse range of testing and research being conducted on a variety of tissues, working alongside an international team, and getting published along with their senior Ph.D. peers.
The primary challenge was finding the specific lab experience alongside an entry-level candidate (and pay range), while also expected to be ‘on call’ all the time as new tissue samples were rushed to the facility.
After the initial intake call where the client shared not only the details of the role but where their efforts had fallen short both on the recruiting side and retention, Rhodes Wolfe built out straightforward, balanced ads that portrayed the exciting opportunity along with the realistic challenges of the role. Cold outreach with similar messaging also was immediately initiated.
In late November, our client let us know they were ready to make an immediate hire and within one week they had 5 candidates interviewing and a new hire, based on our submissions, on Day 19 of the search.
We help our clients get talent with our focus on alignment through custom-built searches, pay-you-if-the-search-fails guarantee, and 15-month placement backing. If you need a true partner to work on your search, contact us.
