BH Associates® Case Study

Aligning Client Values Direct Hire


Our client, an independent 501(c)(3) public interest group focused on ensuring transparency in government and protecting taxpayer interests, needed to hire a communications specialist on a direct hire basis. Though listed as non-partisan, they had a traditionally conservative-leaning viewpoint, requiring that the communications specialist be passionate about these values and be experienced with that type of platform.


We researched our client’s values and spoke with public relations, media, and communications staff in aligned congressional offices to market the opportunity and seek referrals.

The Results

We filled this opening with a candidate who fit the values, culture, compensation, skill sets, and location of the position. This candidate started as a communication specialist and was promoted in less than two years.
