The Challenge

UC Berkeley approached us with a search project to hire their PeopleSoft Security Systems Manager. They were aware that the shrinking PeopleSoft talent pool had made hiring extraordinarily time-consuming and challenging.

Our Approach

The client engaged with us on a DreamHire Retained Exclusive Search. When we were approached by UC Berekely, we worked directly with their Hiring Manager to fill this position immediately.
From the Intake Meeting in April 2022, the client was highly responsive and on top of everything, which made our job much more efficient.
They quickly provided all the necessary information and were exceptionally responsive with their feedback.
Our team also was very hands-on and took this on as a challenge. Our previous experience with California State University proved to be our firm reference during the search process.
Our search successfully ended in May 2022, and we were able to place the right candidate for our clients.
Our biggest accomplishment with UC Berkeley was that our whole team worked together to fill in the position, and in lesser days than we had promised. The typical DreamHire search is a 6 weeks process - however, we were able to successfully onboard the Peoplesoft Security Lead within 3 weeks. Cutting down 50% of the search time promised.
We have also been approached for a second position by the client, which reaffirms the fact that KAPITAL only provides quality talent. All in all, our DreamHire approach has made this process faster and more efficient for both the client and the candidate.
