Have questions about working with Impact? Most of the answers you need should be below. If you don’t find what you are looking for, simply give us a call or ask one of our Recruiters!

Does it cost money to work with Impact Recruitment?

Absolutely not! As a Candidate there is no fee for working with Impact Recruitment – our fees are paid by the hiring organization. Working with Impact Recruitment is a cost free way to gain exposure to more opportunities.

How can I start working with Impact Recruitment?

There are several ways to get started:


    1. If you see a position that interests you on our website, you can apply directly through our website by registering or logging in.
    2. If you see a position that interests you on an outside website, (example: monster, Workopolis, etc), you can simply follow the instructions for that service provider, or send a Microsoft Word version of your resume to the email address of the recruiter listed in the posting.
    3. If you do not see any positions that are applicable to you, but are interested in working with Impact Recruitment for future opportunities, please visit our jobs page and keep checking back! We are adding new positions every day.
I submitted my resume to a job posting on the website, do I need to re-submit my resume for other opportunities?

If you have sent your resume to us once, we will be aware of you. Even if you submitted your resume to a position that was not an ideal match, we will still consider you for all other opportunities that come up in the future. You may still apply to jobs as often as you like – it helps us know what you are interested in and will remind us of you regularly.

What is the Certified Candidate® System?

The Certified Candidate® System is the most comprehensive Employer-Candidate matching system on the market today. The Certified Candidate® System is our evaluation tool – after submitting your resume, one of our Recruitment Specialists will review your eligibility and if selected, continue with our comprehensive process.  

We take all aspects of your registration, interview and background check into consideration when we introduce you to our clients. This results in a more accurate match for your long-term career goals and gives you an edge when compared to other candidates the Employer might be considering.  

What kinds of jobs can Impact offer?

As a contingency and retainer-based firm, Impact Recruitment primarily offers permanent placements. At times, we also source candidates for long-term contracts with our clients. 

Impact Recruitment works at all levels of an organization, operating as the sole recruitment resource for our clients. We work on every role – from clerical and administrative positions to high-level-skilled trades to C-level executive positions. Whatever your level of experience or title, Impact Recruitment will be able to offer relevant positions, whether now or in the near future. 

What can I expect during my meeting with Impact?

This meeting is an opportunity to showcase your skills and have an honest discussion about your career goals and preferences. During this meeting, one of our Recruitment Specialists will work with you to learn the characteristics of your ideal opportunity and assess and present any existing opportunities that may match what you are looking for. 

Bring anything that might be relevant, including recommendation letters, a portfolio of work samples that may be beneficial, a pen, and, most importantly, a confident and positive demeanor.  

What is the advantage of working with Impact Recruitment and becoming a Certified Candidate®?

There are too many advantages to working with Impact Recruitment to list them all, but here are some of the most important reasons you should consider speaking with us:

    1. We care about our candidates, and their long-term success. It is never about making a placement – it’s about creating great opportunities for great people and great companies.
    2. We don’t have quotas – we meet with you because we believe that success can be had while working together.
    3. At Impact Recruitment we work tirelessly to stay informed and ahead of the market. As a result, we frequently know about opportunities long before they are made public, and we just as frequently make placements with those specific companies before anyone even knows they are hiring.

There are truly no disadvantages to working with Impact Recruitment. We work with the top companies in North America and many of the top 100 Employers in BC and Alberta. Our commitment to quality means that you can be sure we are working our hardest on your behalf. 

How long will it take to find me a position?

Finding the ideal opportunity is a matter of being exposed to the right company, at the right time. Depending on your skills, your level, and what you are looking for in the ideal opportunity, this process could happen in one day, or it can take a year. No matter the case, when we meet great people, we like to stay in touch so that we can help expose you to great opportunities as they become available. 

Remember, we always look to the people we know as a priority when we get a new opportunity. Even if you don’t see something that interests you today, we could receive a new job tomorrow that matches your needs perfectly. 

I am currently employed; do I have to worry about privacy?

The majority of our Certified Candidates® are not actively seeking a new role, but want to have opportunities presented to them if they arise – making privacy one of our top priorities. The privacy of our candidates and clients is of the utmost importance to us and will be maintained fully from initial contact onwards.

How can I find out about the status of the position I applied for?

Due to the large volume of applications we receive only those candidates that have been shortlisted will be contacted for an initial interview. If you are actively involved in interviewing with one of our clients, you can simply contact the Recruitment Specialist that is responsible for the role.

Will I deal with more than one person throughout the process?

You will likely speak to at least two people throughout the process – typically one Recruitment Specialist who is managing the opportunity you are interviewing for, as well as as a Business Developer or Strategic Account Manager who has a close relationship with that particular employer.

In the future, you may hear from a number of our team members. Each one has your interests at heart and values you as a part of our network.
