About Rose Fanta Search
Hi, I am Rose Fanta, founder of RFS, my philosophy has always been life/work balance. After graduating college I was planning on going into a career in finance but literally got recruited into recruiting by a Chicago area executive headhunting firm. I had never even heard about the executive search industry. I went to work for a Chicago area firm that specialized in recruiting. Hundreds of people all scrambling to compete against each other. Luckily I thrived in a hyper competitive environment but quickly found out that I was at my best in my career when I challenged myself. I realized that there was a market that was being completely ignored and that was the combined food & beverage and consumer packaged goods industries. I went to the president of the company and asked if I could start an exclusive food/consumer goods recruiting division. I got the green light and my expertise was born. The Fab news was I honed my headhunting and management skills, I spent many years building the Division to a very successful division. The bad news was, I was with a company that did not promote women so I decided to take a chance, make a change and leave.
The timing was perfect. I had a non compete agreement for a year and took that time to plan, and organize the type of executive recruiting firm I wanted to build. I also spent the time taking care of my Great Aunt Rose who was 90 and was my rock throughout my life. She was dying and I had promised her that she would never see the inside of a nursing home. She died peacefully in her own bed surrounded by love and comfort and I knew I wanted to start a company that gave employees the flexibility to live their lives, be present at work but also be present in their home lives. RM Search was born (my maiden name was McLynn), later I changed the company name to RF Search and then RFS (for Rose Fanta Search). I built the company, with the help of a dedicated staff of headhunters, to what it is today, a network of dedicated headhunters who devote ourselves to old fashioned recruiting. We don’t just list your jobs on LinkedIn or Indeed or such, we recruit by networking, both online and by old fashioned calling people on the phone. But adding to this we also have embraced modern technology, searching the internet for applicants and engaging in split fees with other headhunters, we use every method possible to find that “perfect match” for your companies culture. To those looking for a job, we are straight shooters about the opportunities we have. No fudging of facts. You see the specifications exactly as the companies have given them to us. We don’t take any job, from any industry, just to get business. Recently, I began to notice that many of the companies we serve are often using many of the online career job boards: Careers In Food, Indeed.com, LinkedIn.com, Monster.com, CareerBuilder.com, etc. We are the leading full service headhunter in our areas of specialty: food and beverage manufacturing recruiters, food science headhunters, consumer packaged goods recruiters, and flavor industry headhunters. At RFS, we have always tried to provide the best service to both our client companies and to applicants, and in order to serve this market I came up with the idea of adding job boards to the web site we were constructing. We host our site on the Google Cloud Platform which is much quicker than most job sites, even those hosted on a dedicated server.
So, that is our headhunting company: old fashioned recruiting techniques merged with high technology in order to not only give you a good technical match to your job order but to give you applicant choices so that we can find that “Perfect Match” for your companies culture.
