- Triple check your resume for errors, including verifying accurate dates of employment
- Never embellish degrees or credentials

- Share wish lists of positions and organizations that interest you
Bloomfield & Company is focused on introducing thoroughly vetted and qualified candidates to our clients. You can think of us as head hunters. Our clients come to us with very specific needs, we then go out to the market and try to find the best candidates to fit those needs. We are 100% focused on permanent placement; we do not place candidates in part-time, temporary, or temporary to hire positions.
We do accept unsolicited resumes, however, the volume of unsolicited resumes we receive precludes us from responding to every inquiry. We will contact you if and when an appropriate opportunity arises. If you were referred to Bloomfield & Company, please be sure to let us know so we can thank the individual who referred you.
Frequently Asked Questions // Job Seekers
I sent my resume, but I never heard from anyone at Bloomfield & Company. Can you contact me? We receive a tremendous number of unsolicited resumes, so we can only contact a small number of individuals. We will contact you if your background is right for one of our searches.
Where can I view a list of open positions/who are your clients? Some of our clients require nondisclosure agreements, so we do not post a list of open positions. We work with a wide range of clients, from large, publicly traded companies to nonprofits and associations to philanthropists and family offices. You may occasionally see one of our ads on a major job board.
Do I have to take testing? Sometimes! Some clients ask we administer various exercises. For example, a writing intensive position may require a brief writing exercise, and an administrative position may require Microsoft Office testing.
Can I pay you a fee to help me find a job? No, our clients engage us in very specific searches. You are free to share your resume with us, but there is no guarantee we will be able to assist you.
Can I pay you to review my resume and provide interview coaching? We do not currently offer resume review or interview coaching.
