Frequently Asked Questions

We specialize in the following industries:

  • Forest Products (including timberland and forestry)
  • Building Products
  • Mass Timber
  • Biomass-Based Renewable Energy

Our long experience with the forest products and building products industries provided us a foundation to build a strong practice in Biomass-based Renewable Energy products. More recently, as the Mass Timber industry has developed and is experiencing explosive growth, our earlier experience with Engineered Wood Products (EWP) products makes us uniquely qualified to assist companies in finding experienced and talented personnel in that segment as well.

The short answer is – “It varies.”

Since our primary focus is on filling the specific needs of our client, that means that a specific candidate might or might not have the experience we need at that particular point in time.

Because of our previous experience and relationships, we know that some companies are interested in discovering candidates who have a particular set of skills and experience. They may even potentially create a position, if one is not currently available.

In any case, we are happy to reach out to those at the appropriate time with projects that might be of interest.

Please note:
We are a recruitment firm and not an employment agency. Therefore, while we accept unsolicited resumes from individuals, our clients are companies that retain or engage our services to fill a specific position of need in their organization.

We exclusively work on an employer-paid fee basis. There is never any charge for a candidate who works with us.

The best way to start is to forward a copy of your resume including your current contact information.
