Hello there. My name is Jim Durbin, and I'm a digital marketing headhunter. I do retained, contingent, and contract search for digital natives. Social media, interactive, email, online, digital - it's the same thing these days, and the tech is getting easier. It's the end-to-end experience that's harder to find. Does your candidate understand your business? How you market? How you make money? That's why you turn to someone who lives in that world. Our focus is digital experience in the $100-$180,000 salary range in the United States.
We're partnered with Barista Ventures in Dallas, down at the 211 N. Ervay building on the 7tj floor. Be sure to say hello if you're there for one of the events.
Here's how to work with me.
Check out my YouTube channel with several videos on working with headhunters, interview tips, and salary negotiation. Start with this one: It's on your ego and the job search. It's much easier on the ears than it sounds. Then, send me an email titled "Digital/Social Candidate" I'm happy to have a discussion about digital marketing, but know that I don't have a magic pot of jobs I can reach into. It's all based on what client I'm working with at the moment you call me.
Call me at 214-509-7262, or email me at email@example.com with the subject "Digital Hire" or "Social Hire." I'll send you a hiring process overview, a candidate profile questionnaire, and contract options after we speak. One note - I almost always fly to you if you don't live in Dallas. If the job is important enough to work on, it's important enough for me to come sit down, meet the interviewers, and demonstrate that I'm the recruiter you're looking for. I do all of my own work, from sourcing to screening to negotiating. And I charge 26%, because I'm worth at least 1% more than the other people you'll contact.
(If you're an engineer or a systems thinker, replace that last sentence fragment with "I bring an additional 4% of value that is reflected in my fee structure).
