Why the need for another recruiting firm?
3 Reasons to Hire H. Friedman Search, LLC
H. Friedman Search, LLC is extremely unique within the field of Capital Markets recruiting, as the Principle Harlan Friedman is and has been a Public Finance Banker, JD and a recruiter for a total of 30 years.
How many times has a recruiter reached out to you to not only tell you about Series 7 positions, or if Attorney about legal positions that has nothing to do with your field of expertise?
Or conversely as a Hiring Manager; how much time have you invested by talking with recruiters, reviewing resumes, and interviewing applicants that do not even come close to what you were looking for?
I cannot promise you that every applicant we suggest you chat with you will want to hire, but with our firm I can state succinctly that your time will never be wasted.
How can I make such an assertion, quite simply I walk my talk? The professionals that I speak with daily know that I understand their business. The conversations we have are not surface level, but deep meaningful discussions about their career objectives.
When they talk about their frustrations with their current platform, or failure of performance by the desk, or lack of dedication of their firm to the Public Finance space – they know I get it!
Because of their comfort level with my knowledge of the industry and my confidence as a seasoned recruiter, I am told what is their “real story”; not a knee-jerk reaction to get me off the phone. In addition, many of the people I engage with, I have been chatting with & advising them for years.
Therefore, when the right opportunity is presented to me, I sometimes (but not all the time) know the right candidate to put in front of the Hiring Manager.
The hardest part of making a move is to deal with the emotional ups & down that naturally occur with such a decision. Because of our vast experience within this industry, we are able to coach you through every step of the process.
Knowing and understanding that most candidates will go through an emotional roller-coaster throughout the process is the key to a smooth transition. If you are not feeling this, you are not a serious candidate.
Working with a trusted advisor whom you can confide in should minimize the emotional upheavals you are being subjected to at home and work. We will be with you whether you choose to make the move to a new firm today or in the future. Your employment transition is our number one interest at all times!

MAKING A DIFFERENCE
What Clients Say...
“Calling Harlan Friedman a “Recruiter” or “Search Professional” does not do him justice...
When he reached out on my behalf, it became very clear to me that, when Harlan Friedman calls with an idea or an introduction, the public finance industry answers. One week later, I’d completed phone interviews with three of the four firms and began discussing next steps with Harlan. To say that I was impressed with how things had progressed would be an understatement...
If you are reading this and you have the opportunity to work with Harlan, I recommend that you jump at the chance.”
