Job Seekers FAQs

General

Is LaSalle Network a search firm or a temporary staffing firm?

With 200+ recruiters, we have the skills and experience to do both temporary and permanent placement effectively.

I'm looking to work outside of Illinois, can you help?

Our roots are in the Midwest, that’s for sure. We opened shop in Chicago nearly 20 years ago and have four offices in the Chicagoland area. But we also have offices in San Francisco and Nashville, in addition to remote recruiters across the country. We’ve placed professionals in permanent roles in nearly half of the 50 states, and each month we’re breaking into new markets. We have the references to back us up.

I only want to work in a specific industry, can you help me?

We work across all industries and all verticals. Think of us as industry agnostic. If you are targeting a specific industry, it’s likely we have clients that work in that space. However, if you are able to expand your search, we likely have more opportunities we can discuss with you.

Why have several LaSalle employees reached out to me?

This is the beauty of LaSalle Network! You won’t just have one person working for you in your job search, you will have the resources of our team…which means you may interview with a few members of our team, and you may also hear from a few of us about different job opportunities. At the end of the day, we want to help you identify an opportunity that’s right for you, and that means you may speak to a few different people in the process.

Is there a charge for your services?

Our services are free to candidates. We want to be a resource in your job search, which means we will be looking for an opportunity that aligns with your background and skillset, but we also will provide resume advice, career consultation, compensation consultation and interview coaching. We just ask that if you enjoy working with us and saw value in your experience, that you refer friends and family our way!

What's up with your Yelp reviews?

We interview tens of thousands of people a year and obviously can't help everyone. Unfortunately, when people go to a staffing and recruiting firm, they think they are going to leave with a job. The result is some negative reviews. We were named a 2016 Glassdoor Best Place to Work because we treat people with respect and dignity. Come meet us and find out for yourself!

From what I saw on Glassdoor, it looks like most of your work is with recent college graduates?

Our entry level group does place thousands of recent college graduates in new jobs, however, we cover everything from the C-suite to staff level positions.
