Small, But Mighty
At Burchard and Associates, we pride ourselves on being a small, boutique firm that effectively competes with much larger, national firms. We embrace the use of technology to do our jobs faster and better but never lose sight of the fact that we must exceed the expectations of our clients and candidates and create long-lasting relationships. The most rewarding part of this job is getting to know people and helping them make a great career decision, or assist and advise a client on selecting the right professional who fits their needs both in the short term and long term.
St. Louis is a city that operates like a small town. Reputation is everything and people will gravitate toward companies they know and trust. We embrace that feeling of familiarity in the way we operate: as clients enter our doors they will find Lucy, our dog, who happily greets people and brings a smile to their faces. Job hunting and interviewing can be a stressful process, but we strive to make it a positive, professional experience for our clients and candidates.
Years Of Connections
Burchard and Associates, Inc. will often work with our clients and candidates on multiple occasions and during various stages of growth. We place a heavy focus on valued long-term relationships. A candidate that was placed as a staff accountant years ago may be the CEO of a company now and will likely have contacted us several times during their career and referred their colleagues. We value those relationships and invest our time in developing them.
In order to achieve the best results possible, we aim to do two things reliably: respond and deliver. We approach filling a job opening not as simply matching a job description, but understanding how it fits into the current job market. We will let companies know if they have unrealistic ideas of pay or work requirements, and collaborate with them to tweak their expectations and hire the best possible professional. And conversely, our candidates receive the same understanding and guidance in making their next job move. Our clients and candidates have grown to trust that our advice in helping to achieve their goals.
Knowing And Growing
As technology grows, we are constantly adapting in order to provide better services to our clients, as well as finding more qualified candidates. We embrace the technology that helps increase our competitive edge; however, we fully recognize that recruiting is still a people-centric business, and that getting to know people pays off. Our clients and candidates see how much we enjoy doing our job, and we see a reflection of that in those who seek to work with us.
