Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do I pay a fee for placement services?


No, all placement fees are paid by our client companies. We get paid on what is called in the industry on a ďcontingency basisĒ, meaning we have to know what we are doing because fees are earned only when a candidate is hired by a client company. For you, our candidates, there is no contract to sign, the best way to show your gratitude and repay us to be well prepared for the interview and to keep all the information presented to you confidential. Information that is leaked out can hurt your chances on getting that position as well as unappreciated calls / unsolicited resumes that might be sent to our client about the opening that they are trying to fill. The best way to show gratitude for our services is to first get the job as well as to refer any colleagues, friends, co-workers who are also looking for a new position. So letís get started!!!

Q. What if I find a position on my own?

Congratulations. We are always pleased when a candidate finds a position. Our goal is for you to secure a new opportunity. All we ask is that you please inform us so we can stop our search process for you, and that you keep our information on file in the event you or anyone else you know might need our services.

Q. How and when will I know that I have an interview?

Once we identify a position that fits your skill set and criteria you will be contacted by phone / E-Mail. If there is an interest with both parties then a day and time will be set up for an interview. R & D Consulting will then send a confirmation e-mail will all the necessary information, address, job description, contact person and any other pertinent information. All we ask is that this information is held with strict confidence.

Q. Do you currently have a position available for me?


While we have many open positions and we are in contact with many companies, finding the position that best suits your qualifications and career goals may take time. Your resume and all pertinent information (salary requirements, industry, location etc) will be in our database and will constantly be reviewed whenever an appropriate position becomes available. Upon which R & D Consulting will contact you once a position opens up that fits your criteria and review the details of the position.

Q. Can you assure me that my job search will be confidential?


Yes, your relationship with R & D Consulting is strictly confidential, and we take this very seriously. We will discuss job openings with you prior to presenting your resume. We do not mass mail your resume to companies without your knowledge.


Q. Why is it important for me to have a face to face interview with R & D Consulting?

A good match for both client and candidate is the most important part of our job. During our interview we will learn about your goals, career development and requirements as well as what culture you feel comfortable in and prefer to work in. Working for a premier investment bank can and will be a lot different that a small advertising company. At R & D Consulting we want to make sure that both the applicant and company feel comfortable. At our meeting R & D Consulting will also explain our placement process and present opportunities (if available at that time) that match your goals, skills and education.

Q. Does R & D Consulting specialize in a specific niche?


R & D Consulting has over the years successfully placed financial, Accounting, Marketing, Compliance, Financial Sales, Entry Level and Support Personnel in various diverse industries. From exempt, none exempt entry to management level positions. But beginning in the mid to late 90ís there has been an unparalleled need in the Tri-State Area for qualified candidates at all levels in the financial services industry. Since then R & D has spent much of its time and resources servicing this specific industry. However due to the recent turbulence and changes in the financial services landscape, R & D Consulting while still specializing in the financial service industry, we have also been diversifying into other industries as well.
