Certain Hires for Uncertain Times

Meet 10 qualified candidates in 10 days for $1,000. Guaranteed. 

Still hoping that posting on a job board will bring you the best candidates?

It's not likely. 

You could hire an expensive headhunter, but that will cost you tens of thousands of $$$.  


You could try SHORTLIST

Hi, I’m Jeff Hyman, the award-winning recruiter with 3,000 hires under my belt at hundreds of growth companies.  

And I have a secret…  

If you already know how to interview candidates (and just need help finding them) then you probably don’t need a headhunter.  

You simply need a way to pinpoint exactly the right people & get your job opportunity in front of them.  

That’s why I created...SHORTLIST

It's the only way to meet 10 qualified candidates in just 10 days. Guaranteed.

What Clients Are Saying..

"SHORTLIST rocks! It saved me $84,000 in headhunter fees on just one search. This changes everything about the way we hire."

Alex Stepien | CEO | Cappex

"The hardest part is choosing from the remarkable candidates they deliver. They put us in front of 4 outstanding VP Sales candidates in days!"

Mike Pytlinski | CEO | Moon Cheese

Headhunters Charge $30,000 or More 

With No Guarantee of Finding the Best Candidate for Your Company

Why Take That Risk?

Yes! Let's Give SHORTLIST a Try
