“Up to 40% of current Australian jobs could disappear within the next 15 to 20 years as robots and computers continue their unstoppable advance.” This headline (ABC, 4 July 2016) does not herald anything new, but rather serves to highlight the changing nature of work.

“Saenger Associates had the clout and access to the high level position I wanted in the company. I’ve dealt with other search firms but Saenger has more of a program to offer. They are finer tuned in qualifying the candidate and they seem to know more about how to support the company. Gary totally and completely understood what the company wanted in a candidate; consequently, being interviewed by him was like being interviewed by the company itself. Other companies seem to just fill jobs, looking only at a candidate’s past experience and education, but Saenger goes the extra mile to find the perfect social blend of cultural and interpersonal traits as well. I didn’t realize their motto was “Matching Great Executives with Great Companies” but it seems to fit. My experience was definitely great.”
