We are relentless in our pursuit of the perfect candidate and submit only those candidates who we feel will be an exceptional fit for our client companies.

Established in 1995, PPS's database ranks amongst the largest in the industry. Our candidates come to us locally and nationally through referral and targeted recruiting campaigns - not through advertising or resume sites. In a day and age when many recruiters use resume boards to service their clients, PPS recruits relentlessly in pursuit of the perfect candidate.

Our candidates are the cream of the crop. Greater than 90 percent of the candidates we place are not on the job market at the time that we place them. How do we recruit them? By presenting them with opportunities -- opportunities that would enhance their careers, even if they aren't otherwise looking. We have a proven track record of presenting candidates to companies that other search firms can't - which is precisely the reason our clients come to us first when there's a position to fill.


The ever-changing dynamics of the oil & gas industry continue to create new and greater challenges for E&P companies. Attracting and retaining exceptionally qualified and committed staff are key elements to survival in such a fluid market place.

PPS performs contingency and retained searches and can tailor
searches to fill any need. For information, contact PPS President, Jacques Pernitz.

Jacques Pernitz has been president of Precision Placement Services, Inc.
since its inception in 1995. He has a passion for recruiting and a knack for identifying, screening and placing talent. He believes that most candidates will move given the right opportunity. The key, he says, is listening carefully to their wants and needs. The fact that a potential candidate isn't looking for a new position is irrelevant once the right opportunity presents itself.

During the 1990's, Pernitz built PPS into one of the leaders in information technology recruiting. After the technology bust in 2001, he revamped the company, focusing on the oil and gas industry. Today, his name is synonymous with oil and gas recruiting. He believes in building relationships only with candidates that he would hire and with companies he would work for.


Greater than 90 percent of the candidates we place are not on the job market at the time that we place them.
