Each recruiter at Toby Spitz Associates, Inc. is thoroughly informed and familiar with the law firms and industries that seek candidates in each area of law. Four of the firm's recruiters were practicing attorneys prior to joining Toby Spitz Associates and therefore, have the necessary experience with law firms and corporations to make successful client/candidate matches. Candidates are screened through an extensive three-stage assessment. The first stage involves a background study of the client and the client's objectives. The research and analysis stage is next and involves both a candidate search and a thorough screening of candidates. The recruitment and presentation stage calls for detailed interviews and the delivery of the best candidate matches. Clients are given a detailed report on all candidates and if the match is a success, negotiations ensue.

The firm has worked with many high profile clients including the AT&T Corporation, Avon Products, Inc., Kraft Foods Corporation, Hasbro, Nabisco, and the Reebok Corporation. The offices of Toby Spitz Associates have the latest equipment and the ability to offer clients the most up-to-date profiles on job candidates. The firm developed an automated database of job candidates in 1987, making it one of the first recruiting firms with such a database. Toby Spitz Associates currently has a database of about 70,000 candidates, giving recruiters the ability to quickly access records and successfully fulfill client job placement requests.

Success Stories

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
