Frequently Asked Questions

What Services do we provide?

We are a recruiting firm in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and beyond. We find the talent you need to make your business thrive. We do the legwork of discovering prospective employees, we review and assess all relevant resumes, and we participate in the interview process to help your team source and identify the ideal individual for your vacant position.


What is Direct Hire Recruiting?

With direct hire recruitment, we find the ideal candidate or a short list of ideal candidates for you, and it’s up to you to hire them. Our job as your recruiting firm in San Francisco and Los Angeles is to make the connections and to find someone who will be perfect for you – and for whom you will be the perfect job. Once you hire them directly, we’re out of the picture, at least until you have another position you need to fill.


What is Temporary Placement?

With temporary placement, we actually hire the employee and place them in your open position. The employee is paid by us, and at the end of the temporary employment, we will move the employee to another position and give you a new temporary employee, if you still need someone to fill the position. Or you can take an option to offer your temporary employee a permanent position.


Temporary placement is a popular choice from Ruby Peak Recruiting, your premier Staffing Agency in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Temp hiring allows you to give employees a risk-free trial period. If the employee isn’t a good fit, there are no legal hoops to jump through to find someone who will be a better fit once the temporary employment period is over. On the other hand, if the employee is perfect for the job, you can offer them a permanent position.


How do we find great talent?

This is a perennial question that bosses, human resources professionals, and recruiters always have. There are many talented, hardworking, and highly motivated people in the San Francisco and Los Angeles area, but it is always a challenge to find someone who will be the perfect fit for your position.

When you post a job opening, you are likely to get many applications and resumes in response. It would seem like a very good thing to be able to have many applicants to choose from, but it can also be overwhelming. You want to give each person a fair chance, but if there are just too many people to sort through then time becomes a problem. You might miss someone who would have been the perfect fit for your position simply because you could not take the time to read through all of the resumes, or because their cover letter didn’t stand out from the crowd enough.


Sometimes, people who interview well and have exceptional resumes do not actually perform as well at the job as you expect. And for many jobs, the skills needed to do the job well have nothing to do with writing resumes, so a standard application process actually doesn’t tell you anything about whether the people applying would be good for the job.


This is why you need a recruiter. At Ruby Peak Recruiting, our recruiting team finds the talent for your San Francisco or Los Angeles-based company or job opening. We work with you to find out exactly what you are looking for, and then we go out and find the perfect employee for your business.


Why work with a Recruiter?

Any company with an HR department has people who can hire and fire employees, so why work with a third party? Couldn’t your HR department take care of finding the employees you need and hiring them?


HR professionals have to do many things other than just finding talent. Your HR department is taking care of everything from policies to harassment complaints, and everything in between. When they go through applications and find someone to hire, they’ve had to do it in between all the other tasks they already have to take care of.

At Ruby Peak Recruiting, finding talent is all we do. You have our undivided attention when it comes to understanding exactly what you are looking for in an employee. Since we help so many clients find the excellent talent they need, we can capitalize on the sheer scale of our venture – we know our prospective employees just like we know our employers, and we won’t accidentally pass by someone who would have been perfect for the job in favor of someone less perfect simply because they had a nicer looking resume or cover letter.


How does it work?

Recruiting is an art, not a science. The first step is establishing that there is an open position that needs to be filled. The second step is developing a deep understanding about the company, the culture, the bosses, and the history of the position to get a clear understanding of what they’re looking for. The third step is plugging that formula into our expansive network and deploying the art of identifying, isolating and presenting hand-picked individuals to the company while constantly interviewing new people. The fourth step is shepherding the client and the candidate through the interview process. We serve as a resource to make sure the process runs smoothly and everything stays on track and is a positive experience for everyone. We foresee any kind of difficulty coming in the process and work to alleviate it. And with the fifth and final step we help people finalize and present and accept an offer and be there as a resource as people ramp up in their new job.
