How It works

Did you know that over 80% of the candidate pool is not job seekers?

Joe DeMark

I was so impressed with the attention SQRL placed on role/culture fit in their pre-screening process that it was a no-brainer to use them as our preferred 3rd party recruiter

Sam Oryhon
HR, Medication Management Partners

I have had the privilege of working with the SQRL team on a few different searches and my expectations were definitely exceeded!
