About ESG

The Emory Search Group (ESG) is an internal recruiting organization committed to the success of Emory University through the identification and recruitment of outstanding external talent for the hard-to-fill and mid-level to executive-level searches.

As an internal staffing agency for Emory we are motivated to recruit top talent who understand the culture of the University. We partner and collaborate with our departments to create a positive experience for the candidates and hiring managers.

Department Testimonials

“Having worked with external search firms for many years, I have found the Emory Search Group to provide the same level of candidate sourcing and customer service, but without the added cost. The economic and institutional value of the ESG is clear to me, and having full-time Emory employees working to fill positions, there is an added level of commitment to the institution that is not always found with external firms.” - Office of the Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration

“The turn-key service offered by the Emory Search Group has made utilizing their services a no-brainer for me. ESG understands the Emory culture and job work requirements, so we find the candidates presented are good fits in every aspect. The time I spend to fill a key position is decreased by at least 80 percent when I use ESG and the positions are generally filled in about half the time it would require using other services. This is really a no-stress solution for hiring managers to land great employees for Emory." - Finance Division
