Placement Process

Is there a Financial Commitment?

There is zero financial commitment to a candidate who wishes to use our services.

What is the Registration Process?

  1. The first step is to send your resume to If we have positions available that suit your skillset, we will contact you to discuss your previous work experience, your goals for your future, and to set up an interview time.
  2. Appropriate paperwork will need to be filled out so we may represent you professionally.  Forms can be found below on this page.
  3. A Palmer recruiter will interview you virtually or in person.  It is important to remember that this is an actual interview, not simply a time to meet. This is our first opportunity to build a rapport with each other.
