FAQs

  • Who should apply?
    • Recent college graduates who have less than 1 year of full-time work experience. Previous experience in sales, retail, or restaurants is preferred but not required.
    • Experienced hires should apply for an Executive Recruiter position.
  • Is this a paid position?
    • Yes. ARs work a slightly different schedule than our Executive Recruiters, but are paid for the duration of the program. Upon invitation to join the team full-time, candidates will be offered a base salary plus commission structure.
  • Is everyone guaranteed a position?
    • No. The program functions like a competitive internship – not all candidates are guaranteed a full-time position after the program, but candidates who work hard, learn quickly, and put in 110% effort will be invited to join the SSG team. There are weekly check-ins to discuss performance and progress, and set metrics to hit for each week.
  • How should I prepare for an Associate Recruiter interview?
    • Print out multiple copies of your updated resume, and bring them with you on interview day. Be sure to include any full- or part-time jobs and internships you may have worked in college, and any leadership positions you may have held in various extracurriculars. Come prepared to discuss why you’re interested in recruiting, why you think you’d thrive in a sales environment, and how you’ve overcome challenges in the past. The SSG team is looking for evidence you will work hard, be gritty, and be unafraid to go after new opportunities.
  • What’s the difference between executive recruiting and corporate recruiting?
    • Corporate recruiters are in-house, and recruit employees for their company, mostly through connecting with candidates actively looking for a new position. Most corporate recruiting roles offer a base salary, but not commission. Executive Recruiters, in contrast, are recruiting employees who will be full-time employees of their clients, mostly through connecting with passive candidates who may not be actively looking for a new position. Executive Recruiters work in a competitive, commission-driven environment.

This role will be responsible for full life-cycle recruiting, including building strong partnerships with Candidates and Clients, hiring Managers, developing strategic recruiting plans and job descriptions, sourcing candidates, screening/vetting, interviewing, negotiating, and much more.
