Submit Your Resume ›

YES Partners finds exceptional candidates companies otherwise don’t have access to.

There are two types of candidates:

  • Active Candidates refers to candidates actively looking for a new job.

  • Passive/Hidden Candidates are employed and doing innovative work in their company. They are not looking at job-boards or sending out resumes and very often they also don’t have any public profiles.
    This means either a company cannot reach these candidates, or these candidates are not aware of any opportunities

Passive/Hidden Candidates are the most desirable and are the ones YES Partners is focusing on.
