What Makes Vine & Branch Different Than Other Career Placement Agencies?


Puppy Mill Approach

Puppy Mill ApproachMost “head hunting” agencies use what is called the “puppy mill approach” to finding talented Veterans for your company. These agencies will typically review and assist an individual with resume preparation and conduct one or two assessment phone calls. These “puppy mills” will then schedule some hiring conferences at large hotels, where nervous job seekers conduct a few interviews with companies they may or may not know much about. Furthermore, companies are all too often making important hiring decisions derived simply from resumes and references. Don’t buy a puppy from a puppy mill!
