Industries Served




Premier Paths started in Healthcare, and that industry represents one of its strongest pillars of success.  In fact, our success in placing a wide range of Healthcare candidates resulted in our decision to branch out into the Manufacturing, Engineering, and Information Technology industries, as well.

For example, Premier Paths routinely recruited Information Technology professionals (Software Engineers, Systems Analysts) and Engineering professionals (Environmental Engineers, Electrical Engineers) for the Healthcare sectors.  Consequently, we now conduct IT and Engineering searches outside of the Healthcare industry.

However, Healthcare remains the number-one area of expertise for Premier Paths. Below are just some of the positions that Premier Paths can fill:

  • Physicians
  • Physician Assistants
  • Nurses (BSN, Director and Manager level)
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Healthcare Leadership
  • Physical Therapists
  • Health Information Management (HIM)

To work with one of our agents, professionals must have at least three (3) years of work experience. We unfortunately are not able to represent fresh graduates or accept candidates that require visa sponsorship at this time. Although, be sure to check out our Physician postings . . . sometimes our clients will look at new grads!




Due to the crossover success that Premier Paths has experienced in placing Healthcare professionals, namely the success placing those professionals in different employment settings, we’ve expanded our services to include the Engineering industry.

Engineering represents one of the fastest growing fields within the employment landscape.  Companies in this field are growing, and they are typically very motivated to fill their open positions with the best candidates available in the shortest amount of time possible.

As a result, top engineers can command excellent salaries and benefits, and this is especially the case if they work within specialized fields.  Below are just some of the positions that Premier Paths can fill:

  • Software Engineers
  • Electrical Engineers
  • Materials Engineers
  • Environmental Engineers
  • Mechanical Engineers

Coincidentally, four of the five positions listed above are among the top 10 highest-paying jobs in engineering.  Software Engineers are fourth, Electrical Engineers are seventh, Materials Engineers are ninth and Environmental Engineers are eighth.

If you’re seeking your next great career opportunity . . . or you next great employee in Engineering, Premier Paths has the experience, resources, and expertise to help you reach your goals.




While there is plenty of crossover in the job market these days between the Healthcare and Engineering and Information Technology industries, the same holds true for the latter two.  Engineering and IT often go hand-and-hand, and companies often seek employees who excel at skills that fall within both industries.

With that in mind, below are just some of the positions that Premier Paths can fill:

  • Software Engineers
  • Systems Analysts
  • Systems Managers
  • Data Communication Analysts
  • Electronic Medical Records positions
  • Web Developers

Software Engineers, Systems Managers, and Systems Analysts are among the best-paying positions in IT, especially in regards to Electronic Medical Records niche.  Companies are seeking top candidates who can help them convert and install systems for the purpose of allowing Healthcare providers to share electronic medical records.




At Premier Paths, we’ve been very involved in the Manufacturing industry for over 15 years.  Prior to becoming a recruiter, firm owner Melissa Truax enjoyed a successful career in the Import industry, specifically Pet Toys, Children’s Toys, and Novelty Gift Items.

As a result, she has a strong background in Product Development, Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), Product Design Packaging, Private Label Packaging, Package Creation, and Patent Ownership.  As a result, Truax can “speak the language” when it comes to placing candidates in Manufacturing, drawing upon her extensive experience working with “big box retailers” and their comparably sized sales teams.

Below are just some of the positions that Premier Paths can fill:

  • Sales Professionals
  • Product Development Managers
  • Product Development Marketers
  • Product Designers
  • Packaging Designers
  • Public Relations Specialists
  • Engineering Managers
  • Software Engineers

Whether you’re looking to take the next step in your career or beat the competition by adding the best candidates available in the marketplace, Premier Paths can provide the solutions you need in the Manufacturing industry.



Grade-A candidates are in high demand . . . and they know it!

How are you finding the top talent you need? While you may be able to offer more money, benefits, better hours, and a better work environment etc., finding an interested and qualified professional takes time and resources.

The day-to-day operations of your company keep you busy enough as it is. When are you supposed to seek out high-quality professionals to fill your open positions? After all, they’re more than likely not unemployed, knocking down your door, or even submitting their resume or applying to your online postings.

More than just a headhunter

Finding the best talent is just part of the equation for success with your workforce. Premier Paths can increase your ROI with the people you hire through:

  • Role Analysis
  • Benchmarking
  • Virtual Interviews
  • Behavioral Interviewing and Personality Assessments

Find the best professionals in Healthcare, Manufacturing, Engineering, and Information Technology!



Do you love your job? You should!

There are so many aspects to career satisfaction.  Are you appreciated?  Do you earn what you’re worth?  Perhaps you aren’t given the flexibility required to perform your job effectively.  Whatever is causing your work headache, we can help find the right solution!

Athletes and actors are not the only people who need agents to represent them.  This is where Premier Paths can help.  We act as the agent for your career, representing you to organizations across the country . . . all to find the position that is best suited for you.

What does this service cost?

This service is FREE to professionals and helps to ensure that you have access to the best positions available.  The ideal situation is when multiple companies want to explore you as a fit for their organization.  Since we negotiate on your behalf, as well, we can make sure that you get the challenge, hours, pay, or whatever it is you want most.

Does a career agent really make a difference?

Yes, we do!  Approximately 85% of professionals who work with Premier Paths are with the same company three years after they start.  They may not be in the same role, as the companies with whom we work strive to provide upward mobility for their staff.

What sort of professionals are a good fit?

We require all candidates to be:

  • Realistic – You can’t expect to earn substantially more than what the market is currently paying.
  • Honest – If there’s anything we should know about your background prior to submitting you to our clients, you’d better share it with us.  Knowing issues up front is much easier than trying to fix them later.
  • Available – If we’re representing you to our clients, be reasonably available via phone and provide information we need (updated resume, etc.) in a timely fashion.

Note: We are unable to accept residents or candidates that require visa sponsorship at this time.

How can you get started?

We look forward to hearing from you!
