Our Story


 Are you anticipating or pursuing a career change?
Are you a business leader looking for
     – just the right person to complete your team?

Concept Professional Recruiting (CPR) can help you.

 We enjoy the benefits of network relationships carefully built and maintained for 30+ years. Our reputation in the field gives us access to remarkable resources we go to when helping connect talent and opportunity. We take a personal interest in each search. 

With search and recruitment norms changing fast, demand for our expertise is high. We help you:

  • Picture what your ideal job will look like.
  • Craft & update your resumes to target employers.
  • Network with trusted companies that are always looking for good people.
  • Evaluate your employment offers, salary, and benefits.

Today’s requests primarily call for help in recruiting permanent talent.  The economy is good.  Baby boomers are retiring.  “Who can you find for us?” companies ask.
We’re happy to make quality introductions!

 Founded as Concept Engineering & Mfg., Inc. in 1984, we supplied quality engineering, design, and drafting services to companies in the highly competitive Milwaukee area. A chief engineer would call with a need for a designer on Monday at 8:00 a.m.  No resumes, no background checks.  We would deliver a candidate on Monday as requested —sometimes including a drafting board!— and they would work until project’s end.  If business and the economy continued to be good, the client frequently hired that candidate permanently. Our long-term goal was to gain an industry reputation for supplying reliable, quality personnel at competitive rates.

 While the search and recruitment industry has changed since 1984, our relationships & trust still set Concept Professional Recruiting apart from our peers.
