Technical & Executive Placements for the Aerospace Industry

Save money, time, stress, and risk when it comes to talent acquisition. Anderson Sterling Associates has over 30 years of experience in technical and executive placements in the aerospace and defense industries.  Our innovative process is very different from a conventional talent search firm. Think of it as a third option beside contracting with a traditional search firm or taking on your own in-house recruiter - we are a solution that combines the benefits of each option in an affordable way. 

Our unique and proprietary method is more affordable and efficient than that of conventional external recruiters. More importantly, we take the time to understand your company, which translates into much better technical and executive placements. Allow us to explain the Anderson Sterling Associates difference, including our strategies for technical and executive placements and all the other benefits of partnering with us. 

Cost Efficiency vs Expertise

Most executive search companies are either retainer-based (mostly for key executives and C-level employees) or contingency-based (mostly for mid-level management). There are also companies that charge a flat fee for delivery. Then there is the option of hiring your own in-house recruiter. Anderson Sterling Associates operates differently. Our pricing method competes in affordability with that of an in-house recruiter. We give you a written proposal which details the estimated time needed to complete the search and the total cost of the project. We give you full control over how much time and how many dollars you want to invest in executive search.

The benefits of hiring an in-house recruiter is a relatively lower overall cost (if you do a lot of hiring) and the fact that you gain an insider with a good understanding of your company culture. There are disadvantages however. Excellent recruiting takes time and it's all too easy to postpone it to deal with short-term problems. Can you pay your in-house recruiter for the level of knowledge, experience, and industry contacts you really want? They may understand the company culture, but will they be able to pinpoint gaps and weaknesses and find you the best talent to address those?  With ASA, you can gain the services of an experienced recruiter in the high-tech industry with decades of experience and expertise in your industry, and with a wide network of contacts for technical and executive placements.

Going Beyond Understanding Your Company Culture

Our experts at Anderson Sterling Associates have had a wide variety of opportunities to work with companies of all sizes with all kinds of staffing challenges. We work closely with your company or HR department to study your culture, goals, plans and strategies, as well as where your gaps are. We take an in-depth look and devote as much time to your company as you deem necessary. Finding someone who exceeds your criteria is not enough. You want someone who meshes with your company culture and understands your vision. A P&G Vice President with 30 years of experience can be a disaster for a young entrepreneurial tech company. Our clients often consider us as a valued part of their company as if we were an extension of their HR department.

Solutions, Not Resumes

How much is your time worth? Would it not be nice to not have to sift through hundreds of resumes?  Wouldn't you rather invest that time elsewhere in your company? Anderson Sterling Associates has developed an extensive screening process for technical and executive placements that finds and selects the best of candidates in your industry for the key positions you need filled. Unlike an in-house recruiter, we have an active search process that targets not only active job seekers, but also those who might be currently working with one of your competitors and haven’t yet considered switching jobs.
