All of our positions are "real". They are with companies that we have signed agreements with and that companies want to fill now.


What geography do you recruit in? What if I want to relocate?

The Gorge Groups primary focus is all states west of the Mississippi. However, each state has a person specifically assigned to that area. By assigning specific individuals to a specific geography, that person becomes intimately acquainted with what is happening in that state.

As the Recruiters at The Gorge Group work as a team, you will have not just one person looking for positions for you, but the entire team is aware of your interests. Most of the positions that we fill have more than one Recruiter involved.


What do you charge and who pays it?

The Client Company pays all fees. There is some variation based on the difficulty of the search; the number of positions that a Client Company estimates it will have in the next twelve (l2) months and the commitment of the Client Company to working with The Gorge Group.
