Capitol Sales Recruiting is a boutique recruiting firm with a dedicated team of recruiting professionals. Our team provides a personalized and targeted approach to making placements in innovative companies in the security, cyber, network, storage, virtualization and/or cloud technologies sectors. While larger recruiting firms focus on volume and sales, we focus on quality placements where candidates not only meet company requirements but fit within the company culture.
We take pride in our past placements and the success rate we have had in matching candidates to opportunities. Capitol Sales Recruiting has a 95% retention rate for candidates we’ve placed since 2011, with an average placement cycle of 14 days from start to finish. This success is due to our knowledge of the Federal Marketplace and our personal attention to the needs of our clients and candidates. When looking at potential Recruiters be sure to ask for their background, qualifications and current certifications to separate a qualified recruiter from a cold call sales pitch.
