Are you an sales leader looking to make
a change for the better?
Dogwood Services Inc. is an established
talent acquisition firm with a stellar track record of recruiting and
placing highly skilled people for our clients. We are
veteran-owned and veteran-led.
We have a great brand, our own team of experienced recruiters, excellent internal processes, strong financial strength and a
great leadership team-- even though we're a company of 60 people. We have one
of the highest employee retention rates in the industry-- more on that
We are looking for a few remote Account Executives to join our team via straight commission. We don't care where you live-- as long as you can do the job.

We DO care about things like ethics, honesty, excellent communications skills, client relationship management, and a habit of doing the right thing because it's the right thing.... and RESULTS.
You would be selling our recruiting and outsourcing services to senior executives in corporate America within a vertical market (such as healthcare, engineering, technology, finance, logistics, etc). Compensation is very generous and is straight commission, so make sure you have moxie, drive and a determination to succeed. This is a work from home position.
Again-- we reiterate-- this is straight commission. It's good money-- but it's not for the faint of heart!
There are NO caps on your income at Dogwood. We expect the right person for this
job to bring home a high six-figure income after a year of hard work-- followed by
more years with even more income, because our commission program ensures you're
paid for ongoing work while you remain on our team. We don't re-assign accounts
to others, we don't re-align territories, and we don't put hindrances in your
