- We presented 5 qualified and genuinely interested executive candidates
- 9 candidates from other sources applied directly to WAPA and passed the initial screening process
- After formal teleconference interviews, 4 candidates were selected for onsite interviews in Washington, DC with DOE Secretary, 3 of the candidates were ours and the other was an internal federal employee.
- The CEO position was awarded to one of our candidates.

Cameco is the largest uranium production mine in the United States. Prior to this time the price of uranium was relatively low, but it spiked significantly in late 2007 through 2008. As a result, quite a few start-up uranium mining companies opened up and recruited away key personnel from Cameco which left them vulnerable. Precision Recruiting, Inc. was brought in to quickly find qualified replacement Senior Level Professional personnel that could “hit the ground running”. The challenge was not only to find qualified candidates that possessed the required college degrees and industry experience in a highly competitive marketplace, but also those that would want to live in the small remote mining towns of Wyoming and Nevada that were in rural areas. PRI ended up filling 10 full-time salaried Senior Level Professional positions and one Senior IT Executive position (for the parent company in Canada)

KCI was in the middle of a global Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) upgrade to the latest version (R-12) and consolidating all the separate instances of Oracle EBS into one single global instance. KCI partnered with IBM who supplied a lot of consultants to help KCI with this large project.

PRI was brought in to help KCI quickly fill several mission critical Senior Professional Level and Team Lead level Information Technology (IT) positions for the global IT department at the KCI HQ office in San Antonio, TX. Timing was crucial because these positions needed to be filled “just in time” to take advantage of the knowledge transfer from the IBM consultants that were rolling off. PRI successfully filled seven positions for KCI.
