The Pareto graduate recruitment process is one like no other.

Pareto Graduate Recruitment Process

Many thousands of college graduates hit the job market each year. While their experience may be limited, this pool of educated job seekers can prove a rich resource. 


Pareto has been the UK's market-leading graduate sales recruitment agency for more than two decades and we're making huge waves in the US staffing scene, led by our New York and Houston offices. In that time we have partnered with some of the world's leading brands, including Adobe, Verizon, Oracle and Blackberry, identifying incredibly talented graduates who are able to hit the ground running and add instant value.

We specialize in assessing these graduates and placing suitable candidates, or teams of candidates, into graduate sales jobs and programs with our clients. With 20+ years of experience recruiting graduates for sales roles, we are now diversifying. We have aligned our Graduate Recruitment Process to focus also on candidates with a technical background, on STEM subject majors with customer-facing skills.

How are Pareto different to other Graduate Sales Recruitment Agencies in New York?


What sets us apart from other college graduate recruitment agencies is the investment we make in these graduates. We interview, assess and then provide 128 hours of training and support to the candidates we place. From over 360,000 applications from graduates received annually, we pick out the most promising candidates to attend our assessment days, placing the successful candidates with our clients. Many deliver ROI in excess of 100% from their first quarter.

We also offer Graduate Sales Academy programmes of training for businesses running their own graduate programs as part of our Sales Training activities. 

Our graduates have gone on to achieve great things in the world of sales..
