Pro Search is celebrating 25 years of partnering with Maine employers and job seekers!

February 7, 2019

In February 1994, Ed McKersie established Pro Search. We are now Maine’s largest Employee Owned Staffing and Recruiting Firm. Our “Local focus, national reach” has served our clients, job seekers and our temporary/contract employees well. We are proud of the trust people have placed in us and look forward to the next 25 years.

We are now an Employee Owned Maine Company!

November 1, 2017

From Ed McKersie, Founder and President:

Today it’s official. Pro Search, founded in Portland, Maine in 1994, is now an Employee Owned Company! All Pro Searchers are owners of the staffing and recruiting company that they built over the past 23 years. I will remain as President, and be working with our great team to continue our growth here in Maine. Our client employers and candidates/applicants won’t notice much of a difference in dealing with us, because our team has always put our firm’s reputation, and the best interest of our clients and temporary/contract employees, first. I am proud to work alongside these special people, and now call myself a co-worker. Our best days are yet to come. I would like to thank my team, as well as the many Maine employers and job seekers who have put their trust in me since 1994. Together we have built something truly special.

We are having another record year!

September 7, 2017

Thanks to all of our client companies for partnering with Pro Search in this tight employment market. And thanks to all of our current and past temporary and contract employees, both for their dedication and great work for our clients, but also for the many referrals that they make on our behalf. We like to say “Good people know good people”, and we know our competitive advantage is the way we treat our employees, who in turn refer their friends to us. In the end, our clients get the best people (people they can’t get from other firms) and our temporary and contract employees get access to unique and rewarding job opportunities! Win – win.

Please remember we have a Referral Bonus Program. Contact your favorite Pro Searcher for the details!

2014 Mid-Year Review

June 26, 2014

After completing our best year ever in 2013, we are seeing increased demand from our Maine based clients for all of our services.

Our Temporary Staffing Team has seen solid growth through the first half of this year, both from longstanding clients and from many new companies and organizations throughout southern Maine.

Our IT Contract Staffing Team continues to grow and we are proud to be Maine’s largest IT Contract Staffing firm. With the largest pool of local IT talent available, coupled with our ability to locate talent nationally when necessary, we are uniquely positioned to partner with our Maine based clients, even if their staffing needs are at an out of state location.

Our Recruiting Team has seen a significant increase in staff level and mid-management level search assignments. However, the strongest demand is coming from small/medium sized companies and non-profit organizations who value our local focus and demonstrated capabilities in handling senior management level searches. Our reputation for understanding our client’s culture and business plans has positioned us as a true partner when it comes to locating and evaluating key management talent.

Here’s to increased growth throughout 2014! Thank you to all of the candidates, job seekers, temporary and contract employees, and our clients for the trust you have placed with us.
