What sets Patrice & Associates apart from the competition?

Technology advancements have improved almost every aspect of our lives, from instant access to information, consumers buying products with ease, and businesses connecting globally. It’s safe to say we live in a technology driven world. In many aspects, technology has improved the process of connecting great talent with companies looking to hire. However, in some cases, technology can be overused, and the art of a good conversation is lost.

We talk with so many great candidates who have applied for 100, 200, even 500 different jobs and they have rarely spoken to a human. It’s a daunting and frustrating process filling out all those applications, questionnaires, and forms, just to be met with little to no response. Many of our Patrice & Associates Franchisees viewed this business as an opportunity to be the recruiter they never had.

Our goal is to provide a step by step approach where we hold the candidates hand through the entire job search process. It’s not just about what’s on the resume, but also finding out what’s important to them. Is it better hours, better advancement opportunities, or maybe a better workplace environment? We take all these into consideration with our recruiting and coaching processes.

It’s not our goal to make a connection and then step back. When we on-board our hospitality clients, we get an in depth view of the job requirements, their culture, core values, and each step of the interview process. This foundation not only helps us to find the right candidate, but it also helps us guide and prepare them for each phone call or meeting. We prep them and role play the interviews so they show up feeling confident.

If you are thinking about taking the leap into a new career, consider talking with one of our very talented recruiters. They have been in the same position and will approach this partnership with empathy, active listening, and a true desire to get you into the perfect opportunity.

If you are a restaurant, hospitality, or food & beverage entity needing top talent, we take a very proactive approach to finding the right fit. We pick up the phone and speak to candidates who may be currently employed and attempt to get them excited about exploring something new. Our clients love that we bring in a whole new pool of candidates that wouldn’t have known about the opportunity if not for our proactive efforts.

We invite you to contact us to see what sets Patrice & Associates apart from the competition.

  • Thank you for helping me Bruce Leininger!

    To be honest, I couldn’t be happier having someone help navigate me in changing jobs because for one, that's a crazy thing sometimes. You know the current system your in and are comfortable, but you want something more that's why your looking for a new job no matter the reason. But having someone help you and give you advice for real life is even more valuable. Mr. Bruce Leininger has been the biggest helping hand I could have ever encountered, great person and businessman!
