Frequently Asked Questions

Does this service cost me anything?

There is no cost to candidates; we apply an overhead charge to clients so candidates receive their full offered pay.

Why would I go through a recruiting agency to get a job?

At Doherty, we have over 35 years of recruiting and placement experience and strong relationships with local companies. Our recruiters place the right candidates in the right jobs, making sure they have the tools they need to succeed.

Do I need to come in for an interview?

In Doherty Career Solutions, we typically pre-screen candidates through a phone interview or Skype meeting, so an in-person interview is unnecessary. In most cases, the first in-person interview will be with company.

What happens after a phone interview with a recruiter?

If the candidate is a good match for the position, the recruiter will forward his/her information to the company. Doherty submits candidates directly to the client/recruiting manager, not into a database.

When do I find out which company I am being submitted to?

When the company requests an interview with a candidate, we provide the candidate with the company name, location, and other relevant information.

How long does it take to get a job through Doherty Career Solutions?

The hiring process varies from company to company. Some positions can be finalized in as little as a week, others may take 1-3 months.

How do I stay in contact with my recruiter?

Doherty recruiters are easy to find on social media and they have lots of job news and advice to share with you. Follow us on Twitter, friend us on Facebook, connect on LinkedIn, and see what we're sharing on Pinterest for expert job advice and information from Doherty!
