Bob Hall, Founder 

At Bob Hall & Associates, we pride ourselves in adding a personal, individualized touch to each recruiting search. We begin the process by meeting with organization leaders to obtain a complete indication of the qualities of the ideal candidate.  This emphasizes the importance in establishing a criterion for the position specific to the needs of the organization. Our focus is putting both the City and the candidate in the best environment and situation to succeed. Our advertisement, outreach, and overall recruitment strategy will be tailored to the City’s desires.
