Our Process

Great sales teams aren't built on guesswork.

And after 20 years of watching sales recruiting miss this fact, we decided it was time to do something about it. We imagined what it would feel like if sales recruiting was collaborative, human, and intentional… and then built the process below to make it real.


We get to know you and your business.

No two businesses or leaders are alike and neither are their growth goals. So the first thing we do is sit down together for an in-depth discovery session. This is not your average half-baked “intake meeting” – together, we pinpoint in detail exactly what and who you need to hire to make sure every profile you look at and every person you interview is truly worth your time.


We tell your story like you would… or better!

Once we have all of the juicy insights from discovery, we pour over every detail to build a go-to-market strategy that tells your story with integrity. We make meaningful connections with salespeople who have the track record to help you grow like we were part of your team. And we’re proud to say our recruiting emails have been described as “the best recruiting email I’ve ever received!!!”


Say goodbye to questionable stacks of resumes...

We do the heavy lifting for you – we get to know potential candidates both personally and professionally in a level of detail you’ve likely never seen before, looking for what makes them tick. Then we bring the best of the best your way via thoughtfully-crafted profiles which showcase the qualitative/quantitative insights that demonstrate why they'd thrive on your team.


We’re your personal concierge throughout the interview process.

We don’t sit back with our fingers crossed once you’ve decided who you want to interview… we’re here every step of the way! We bridge the communication gap, ensuring questions are answered and nothing gets missed. Candidate experience matters immensely to us and we take it seriously… because that’s what it takes to bring the best on board!


We’re here to support you all the way through onboarding.

Our work doesn’t stop once you’ve selected the person you’re excited to hire. We handle your offer with kid gloves, keeping your newest addition to the team engaged and closely connected all the way through the onboarding process. The potential for landmines to pop up during this stage is very real and we do the heavy lifting for you to help you avoid them.

After months of unsuccessful recruiting efforts from our internal team, ATP delivered three perfectly qualified candidates – all with the type of professionalism and responsiveness you desire from vendor partners but rarely get.

Your time is incredibly valuable and it’s why we insist on presenting you with a small, curated selection of highly-qualified and well-vetted candidates to consider. We will not send you on a wild goose chase.

Your brand shines.

We make sure each candidate walks away feeling good about their experience and that your brand shines at all times. After all, they could be your next customer, source of referral, or the person interviewing you in the future!

100% transparency.

Let’s face it, nobody likes to read the tea leaves. No matter where we are in your search or how difficult it might get, you’ll know exactly where you stand, how the market is responding, and what to expect next at all times.

The entire ATP team and process was genuine, insightful, and thoughtful – we quickly became true partners. I can’t imagine trying to scale my next company and team without them.
