As Unemployment Surges, PrincePerelson Helps Companies Qualify Applicants

Industry: Jobs

With a flood of Utahns looking for jobs, Salt Lake City-based placement firm helps save companies time by narrowing down large candidate pools

Salt Lake City, UT (PRUnderground) May 18th, 2020

The U.S. unemployment rate has soared to nearly 15 percent, the highest it has been since the Great Depression. In Utah, 150,000 residents have contributed to that statistic, accounting for the most rapid burst in unemployment claims that the state has ever seen. As the Utah economy begins to reopen and employers are being swamped with job applicants, PrincePerelson is helping narrow them down to ideal fits for their clientele.

For over a quarter century, PrincePerelson has served as a strategic partner to Utah businesses, specializing in accounting and finance, engineering, sales, technology, human resources, marketing, legal, and administrative staffing recruitment as well as executive search. They specialize in “relationship-driven recruiting” – getting to know the unique culture of each of their clients and understand their business needs. They then draw on their extensive networks to locate the best candidates, including those that aren’t accessible through traditional sources.

According to Jill Perelson, CEO and Founder, COVID-19 has been a mixed bag for recruiting, growing the pool of applicants but also inundating companies.

“As many businesses reopen their doors, they’re overwhelmed with responding to a new environment full of remote workers, socially distanced customers, and sanitation protocols,” said Perelson. “Our recruitment firm team is doing the heavy lifting for Utah companies right now, taking care of the talent search process. We do what we do best so that companies can focus on all of the other adjustments that are being required of them right now.”

PrincePerelson takes the “lifecycle approach,” handling recruiting, interviewing, hiring and on-boarding processes and saving clients countless hours and headaches in the process.

Perelson said that her staff has devoted the past several weeks to interviewing and qualifying professionals for a wide variety of industries so that they could hit the ground running. “We’re well-positioned to provide our clients with the top two or three candidates to fit their qualifications and company culture so that they can move the hiring process along as efficiently as possible,” said Perelson.
