Michael Schlager

Michael Schlager, CPC, HSG’s Founder

Michael Schlager is the founder of the Hiring Solutions Group (HSG), a business consultant, executive recruiter, visionary and change agent. He has counseled more than 5,000 job seekers resulting in more than 430 direct placements and thousands of referrals and informal connections.

With over fifteen years’ experience, Michael has helped small and large companies find – and keep – the talent that enables them to grow and prosper.

In his highly-successful career, Michael has placed high-level and mid-level job seekers in a variety of fields at successful companies. He has created proprietary processes that excite employers because his candidates are carefully screened, tested and fine-tuned for a near-perfect match to the company. His candidates have had a major impact on companies, often dramatically raising their industry ranking.

Certified Personnel Consultant

Michael earned his Certified Personnel Consultant (CPC) designation from the National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS) during their 2014 conference in Houston. This was proof of the idea that dedication to a goal makes anything possible.

More about Michael Schlager

Brought up in Boston and spending most of his recent years in New York, Michael recently moved the main office of the Hiring Solutions Group to Passaic, New Jersey. Michael feels that living in Northern New Jersey with an easy bus ride to and from New York city via New Jersey Transit (the bus stop is right at our door) lends a more relaxed atmosphere than he experienced in Brooklyn. Michael lives with his wife and (brand spankin’ new!) baby boy not far from the office, enabling more hours of dedication towards his work in helping individuals succeed with their work. Michael is active in several community efforts and endeavors to seek out local charities that help to strengthen employment and candidate employability through dedicated efforts with individuals. Michael is a member of National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS) for many years and Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM)

Purple Squirrels
