Recruiting Specialist (University Recruiting Focus)
Company: Perkins & Co
Posted on: May 16, 2022
The health and well-being of our team, clients, and community is
our top priority. We're closely monitoring COVID-19 developments
and following guidance from health authorities and government
officials. Perkins & Co's physical offices are open without
restrictions. Most employees have decided to work remotely or on a
hybrid basis so interviews will be held virtually unless the role
requires working onsite or by candidate request.
While we embrace work location and schedule flexibility, the
responsibilities of this role necessitate hiring someone who lives
within reasonable distance to be onsite in downtown Portland and
several universities as needed. Provided you're flexible for
business needs, you can decide whether your regular work
arrangement will be primarily remote, in-office, or hybrid.
Relocation assistance may be available for those who wish to move
to the Portland metro area. We are not sponsoring work visas or

We'll expect you to manage our campus recruiting efforts and
provide administrative support for the team like scheduling

attraction, and talent selection to ensure that we meet the firm's
hiring goals (both quantity and quality).

to meet any ridiculous metrics like number of cold calls or
employee retention. There's no shady business. Instead, we'll
provide you with the freedom and responsibility of ensuring a
positive candidate experience that demonstrates our core values.
And we really do have a good time working together.
Of course, all the warm fuzzies are meaningless if you can't pay
your bills, right? Perkins provides competitive benefits, great
