Through tireless research and proprietary tools, we aggressively recruit people who are the innovative leaders in their respective fields at all levels. They are not always people who are actively looking for a job. Building rapport with passive job seekers has helped us to present talented individuals who otherwise would not have been found without our help.


Our mission is to help our clients hire top talent by recruiting the most qualified candidates through a professional, timely & consultative approach and in turn we help our candidates find opportunities in which they thrive.

Melinda Holm & Associates has built a reputation of unmatched customer service for both employers and candidates. Our methodology for finding candidates is to build relationships with our clients to understand their business and culture. From there, we develop a targeted 4-step approach which we customize for each search.

Other recruitment firms may require their recruiters to ‘make their numbers’ for shareholders, branch quotas, or boards. At MHA we have never had the need or desire to implement a quota. Our integrity in doing what is best for the client and candidate has built long-term partnerships and continued successful placements.

The MHA team is in this business to help people thrive and be happy in the workplace, not just to fill a spot.


Melinda Holm & Associates stands out due to our enthusiasm, aggressiveness, customer service and, most of all, relationships.
