Higher Education and Non Profit Recruiting

Overcome the unique challenges of recruiting within the nonprofit industry with our proven approach.

Engage higher education & non-profit candidates in just 30 days


Recruiting for colleges and universities presents unique challenges and requires a customized sourcing strategy. The complex dynamics of university departments, search committees, a decentralized structure, and the appreciation for how funds are allocated are just a few of the unique hurdles facing educational institutions when hiring talent.

That’s where Another Source comes in—with over a decade of experience serving this industry, our recruitment approach can navigate all these challenges while engaging and building a robust candidate pool to select from. We listen to your story, develop the right pool of candidates for your institution, and take the stress out of recruiting so you can do what you do best—make the right hire.

We focus on mid- to AVP-level staff, sourced from partners and networks all over the country to ensure candidate pools exceed expectations within our 30-day engagements. When you work with us, you benefit from our time-tested recruiting strategies, our flat-rate prices, and the knowledge that our results are guaranteed.

Another Source is a CASE Educational Partner.

I have really appreciated working with you and the team at Another Source! I think this has been the smoothest search process I’ve had with an outside search agency and I will be singing your praises far and wide. Thank you for moving quickly and putting together a quality applicant pool. This experience has been great!

Hallie K. Lewis, Interim Associate Vice President, Student Health and Wellbeing

Thank you and Team Another Source for being an affordable alternative in the search industry for nonprofits like ours and getting the job done even more expeditiously. I’ve enjoyed working with you and will certainly keep you in mind for future hires.

Melbra Watts, Executive Director, Charlotte Maxwell Clinic

Marcie and her team are my trusted partners for recruiting.  They take the time to understand my open roles, help position postings to maximize applicant pools, seek out potential candidates through modern channels, screen for a fit with the job requirements and organizational norms, and handle all of the backend administrative requirements of my organization. Candidates and new hires also often cite how smooth their experiences have been with her team.

Sandip Darji, Assistant Vice President for Improvement, Analytics, and Innovation Services, Stanford University

You and your team are by far the best partners I’ve worked with in 14 years of recruiting

Alli Burton, Director of Business Enablement, McKinstry

Another Source helped us fill a key position with an outstanding candidate.  The firm identified a talented and highly-experienced person who might have otherwise been unknown to us, had it not been for their strategic, thoughtful, and engaging approach that lead to a successful search.

Victor Martin, Vice President for University Advancement, University of Puget Sound

Our partnership with Another Source has been great.  They have helped us meet the challenge of finding the right candidates with the right skills for our specialized positions.

Tim Beggs, Senior Human Resources Manager, INVIDI Technologies Corporation

It is always a pleasure to work with Another Source! We are always impressed with the quality of candidates they find to match our openings.

Erin Ruff, Human Resources Director, University of Puget Sound

We have used Another Source to support us in hiring for several roles at our company. Their process from kick-off to completion is impeccable and they’re very easy to work with. I’ve also referred them to a handful of my business colleagues. We’ll continue to use their services in the future.

Melani Gordon, Investment Principal, Co-Founder/CEO, Melani Gordon Coaching

Another Source is a great alternative to traditional recruiting firms because they do the hard part of finding and sorting candidates, and I get to do the fun part of interviewing and hiring.  This model is brilliant and cost effective at about a third of the cost of a search firm.

Jeanine Willis, Human Resources Consultant, Jeanine Willis People & Culture Consulting

You guys are saviors for businesses like ours (small team, no true HR department, not enough time to focus on vetting and hiring).  I’d have many more new gray hairs sprouting if it weren’t for you and your team!

Ryan Mitchell, Director, Program Management, RetailOps

Your process and services made this a much easier lift for the search committee.  Your pre-screening process allowed our committee to have a robust pool and ultimately, see candidates that may have been overlooked, or snatched up by another employer while we trudged through our usual slow process.

Linda Campos, AVP for Finance, University of Idaho
