“Who is Going to Help You?”, article for job seekers and decision makers, written by Susan Goldberg, published this weekSaturday, December 4th, 2010
After many discussions and countless emails and phonecalls about the subject, Susan Goldberg of SGES, a retainer based executive search firm, wanted to write a helpful article detailing the differences between recruiters, agents, headhunters, search professionals, and employment agents; that article was published in the December 3 issue of “Woman Around Town”. Many professionals assume they understand the differences between the titles, but a lot of misinformation exists in the marketplace. For instance, ” I receive a lot of emails requesting that I represent an individual emailer in the job market. I am a people person. I want to help everyone. But that’s not my role. What the emailer doesn’t understand, in a search situation, as a retained search consultant, I don’t work for an individual, I work as the representative of a client’s organization”. ”Who is Going to Help You” was written in an effort to explain situations just like this one. The article is a primer on the various recruiting titles: explaining what each one does, how they get paid, who employs them and who they represent, and how they work. The media and entertainment industries have the widest variety of these types of titles. However, the piece was written for anyone and everyone who wants to learn more about hiring and/or seeking employment.

SGES cited in Forbes.com article “Don’t Get Stumped In The Interview: The New NEW Interview Questions”Sunday, May 9th, 2010
Susan Goldberg and her retained executive search and career coaching firm were mentioned in the most recent edition of Forbes.com in an article about interviewing. The information was drawn from the “Secrets of Interviewing” presentation which Susan had presented at Carole Hyatt’s Salon for networking on March 24, 2010 (see earlier news item), and from a telephone interview and subsequent email exchanges between the journalist and SGES’ Owner and Principal. It appeared from the interview and email exchanges, that what had most interested the journalist, who was in attendance the evening of the presentation, were the specific examples of recent trends in interviewing questions that Susan detailed at the end of the presentation. Those examples were a combination of interviewing questions which Susan, herself, had used for particular retained search clients who were trying to determine the potential employee fit for their organization along with those questions which she gathered from discussions with a sample of cutting-edge small business owners for the same purpose. The specific questions will be discussed in an upcoming article in “Woman Around Town”.
