Candidates

Great candidates are the key to our success.

We are constantly searching for the best and the brightest beyond a piece of paper. We want to get to know your skills, experience, career goals, and the cultures in which you thrive. As a candidate, you can expect that we’ll understand your unique talents and present you with opportunities that match them.

Every year, we survey candidates we have interacted with to ensure we continuously improve our process. Read what people are saying about us:

“As a candidate, I have found the team to be honest, direct, clear, professional. Even though I’m not the paying customer, they treat me like I am; too many recruiters make you feel like an ‘asset’ to be paraded in front of a customer – with Bowdoin, I feel like a partner throughout the process.”

Geoffrey Clapp, Chief Product Officer at Cricket Health (Former Candidate)

We strive to be advisors for both our clients and candidates.

“Everyone I worked with as a candidate and then as the eventual hire for the role, was very professional. They knew their client well, communicated on a regular basis even when there was a lull in the process. I would not hesitate recommending or eventually using the Bowdoin Group as a high level search firm.”

– Senior Director at HealthPrize Technologies (Former Candidate)

Each one of us provides deep industry expertise so we can provide unparalleled service.

“The Bowdoin team not only identified the opportunity, but was also extremely helpful throughout the interview process, providing great guidance and feedback along the way.”

– C-level Executive at BriefCam Ltd. (Former Candidate)

We continue to receive feedback on how far we go to provide the best candidate experience.

“I’ve been reached out to by many executive search / recruiting firms, and the experience with the Bowdoin Group was the best by a length. The Bowdoin Group went to great lengths to understand me as a person, my strengths and weaknesses, and how best to advise me and advocate for what they perceived was right. I appreciated greatly that there nothing was being withheld from me, and everything was conducted with the utmost transparency and professionalism.”
