Mr. Niemeyer led recruitments for over 15 department head vacancies as well as numerous other management positions.  This included preparing recruitment profiles and brochures, screening candidates and creating a list of top candidates for the elected officials, developing interview questions, managing assessment centers, conducting background checks, and negotiating employment offers.  His most recent large recruitment was for the police chief of Tinley Park which included a day long assessment center. Additionally, he has worked in a variety of different communities in terms of wealth, demographic, political stability, culture and differing goals. A candidate that is successful in one community may not be successful in other, and so it is important that a recruiter understands the importance of candidate fit in an organization. Mr. Niemeyer’s experience in diverse communities will help in screening candidates that are a good match for an organization.
