You're in the business of being the best. We are too.

The Select Group takes a fresh and personal approach to recruiting. Headquartered in Raleigh, NC, The Select Group was founded in 1999 by Sheldon Wolitski, an industry leader and veteran recruiter. Seeing the need for more efficient and cost-effective hiring, he decided to venture out on his own and create one of the most unique and service-oriented recruiting companies in the nation.

We've based our business on honesty, integrity, and ethics. We believe in strong, long-term relationships, and in our commitment to represent only the top echelon of candidates for the best clients.

We believe in the greater good.

That means we act in the best interest of our community, while helping individuals and companies grow. The Select Group donates time and resources to a variety of community involvement and service efforts.

Community Service Holidays

 Every employee at The Select Group has the opportunity to earn additional paid time off by spending time giving back to the community. We know that service to others is a vital part of a strong community and is exactly the kind of environment we want to encourage. Our employees participate in all sorts of activities ranging from coaching community youth sports teams to spending time with the elderly in nursing homes. 

{Blue and} Silver Linings Program

The Select Group provides you more than a job, we are a family. Each quarter, TSG grants a wish for one deserving employee in need. TSG can provide assistance to an employee experienceing a hardship or an employee who may have a family member in need. The heart-felt, caring nominations that have been flowing in from co-workers are a testament to our close-knit TSG family.


The Select Group recently granted the wish of Michael, a 16 year old from Rolesville, NC who is suffering from cystic fibrosis. With the help of our clients, supporters and friends, we were able to raise over $2,000 and send him on an experience of a lifetime – spending a day with the Carolina Hurricanes and going on a ride along at the Charlotte Motor Speedway!


UNC Children's Hospital

The Select Group has a history of involvement with the UNC Children's Hospital. In addition to financial contributions, we collect toy donations from our internal staff, clients and consultants during the holiday season. In early 2011, we provided iPods, iTunes gift cards and iPod docking stations to the hospital for the patients. Most recently, we helped create a music library within the hospital which has been named “The Select Group Music Library.” The music library was built to make musical devices more accessible to those staying in the hospital as well as provide a system so patients can check out iPods and other instruments to help make their stay more enjoyable. We have greatly enjoyed working with the hospital and look forward to a continued partnership in the years to come!

Recent Graduate Testimonials


"After being a college athlete for 4 years, I wanted to transition into a similar style of teamwork and competition in business. From day one at The Select Group, I have been part of a fast paced, competitive, team dynamic that I always hoped for in school. As long as you are committed to working hard, there is so much opportunity for growth."


Matt Wilson
University of North Carolina Wilmington, Class of 2013




"Working for The Select Group right after my graduation from Virginia Tech has been such a rewarding experience! Leaving college for the real world can be a scary thing, but I came into an environment full of energy, hard work, and amazing people. I have been challenged but also rewarded for my hard work. The Select Group truly values the culture and more importantly their employees. I have been a part of the team for about 3 months but I have felt like family since day 1!"


Paola Ayala
Virginia Tech, Class of 2013


"During my final semester at NC State University, I was unsure of the exact job that I was looking for, but knew that I wanted to be a part of an upbeat, exciting environment that provided me with opportunity and growth. The Select Group stood out from the many other companies I had interviewed with, including other recruiting firms.  I value the constant help and support that I have received since day one. The Select Group’s work hard, play hard culture and business mindset have gone above and beyond my expectations!"

    I have been working at The Select Group full-time (more than an year)


    TSG has been an awesome experience for me. My boss is great. He provides constructive feedback and doesn't micro-manage, which is always a plus. The environment is very young and full of energy. Most of the employees have positive attitudes and strive to do their best every single day. Everyone tends to motivate each other and we truly have created a family within TSG. The CEO is very open to feedback and listens to everyone, which is very special to me.


    Salary isn't the greatest. Although we have awesome benefits, we still need to get paid more. Also making sure there is room for growth/promotions is important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company values are perfect, I think TSG has done a great job of creating our values and holding everyone accountable for them. I would advise management to provide higher salaries.
