GoBuyside, founded in 2011, is a recruitment and executive search firm that specializes in the acquisition of specialized talent for operators within the financial industry. An article on Patch detailed the operational strategies of the New York-based company, including their dependence on localized screening tactics, their use of technology and their dedication to specialization, all of which serve to render them more efficient than other recruitment agencies.
The article points out the increasing decentralization of jobs caused by the increasing prominence of the internet and the ability of many possible recruits to work from home, resulting in a large pool of possible hires. GoBuyside, in response to this, has adopted a philosophy of increased selectivity while operating within the job market, making sure that prospective hires presented to a client are only of the highest quality. This is achieved by the use of a system of targeted locational methods meant to assemble prospects with an individualized, instead of generalistic, view of the client. This localized method, in combination with a high-level proprietary screening process that each prospect undergoes, ensures that only the highest quality potential hires in the closest possible areas are presented to a client.
