Ruderfer & Associates differs from other agencies in our years of experience in the pharmaceutical/ consumer products industry, our size and our depth. Our size allows us to offer unique attributes bridging the best of the industry: unlike a larger shop, you get the strong focus of dedicated, experienced staff people; unlike other smaller agencies, we have the resources developed with our years of experience and a proprietary database of candidates to enable the search effort. Even with this resource, we will never present a resume to any company without the explicit approval of the candidate and an understanding from the company of the projects we have undertaken. That’s important to all concerned. 

We welcome the opportunity to work with you!
