Our founders were inspired by the first total solar eclipse that passed over the USA in the 21st century. This event led them to an astronomical action in their recruiting world forming Eclipse Recruiting Solutions LLC, a boutique executive search firm specializing in the fields of finance and accounting.
As the total solar eclipse accounts for the straight configuration of 3 important celestial bodies, the Sun, Moon and Earth, we have identified these as the candidate, job and client in our recruiting universe. At Eclipse Recruiting, our mission is to perfectly align our candidate with a career advancing job at the best fit client, that best matches their profile.
