Headhunter of the Heart
Barbie Adler was a partner at one of the top global public relations firms when she realized she had a gift for reading past a résumé. She always had the last word when it came to hiring, and they always found the perfect candidate. She then rose quickly to the top of the field of executive search, finding ideal candidates for top-level positions in high-profile companies. It wasn’t long before she had an epiphany about her unique skill set that would change her life and give a new life to thousands of others.
“Once I learned the proven methodology for executive search, I realized that it could be applied to people’s personal lives,” Adler says. “So rather than taking companies public, I decided to take individuals’ love lives private and be a headhunter of the heart.”
Selective Search, Inc., the company she founded more than a decade ago, has since proven to have the winning formula for helping individuals find love. This is no dating service. It’s an elite service for a premium fee with the highest success rate in the industry.
The methodology has proven astonishingly effective. For more than 35 percent of their clients, the first introduction has also been the last—love, marriage, the whole deal. With an overall success rate of more than 88 percent, this is a sure way to say good-bye to the ups and downs of the dating scene. “The definition of doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is insanity,” Adler says. “With Selective Search, you can do something proactive for your own love life. At the end of the day, who really cares what you do for a living or what your net-worth is? What really matters is who you spend your life with. It’s adding years of happiness to your life.”
“This is a resource for individuals that have no problem getting a date. They are desirable, eligible men and women who have the right to be picky,” Adler explains. “We are Selective Search, we’re not Settle Search.” The clientele are the who’s who of every industry in Chicago and all big metropolitan cities. Adler’s clients are the business leaders of our country, A-list celebrities, corporate celebrity business CEOs, as well as people who’ve done well for themselves and simply enjoy their privacy. They don’t want to put their personal business online, they don’t want to go to bars or clubs, and they haven’t met anyone special through friends of the family. Additionally, the anonymity involved in the service guarantees that the person you meet will be interested in you for the right reasons. In fact, Selective Search takes privacy so seriously, that no two clients ever run into each other at the office. A carefully maintained schedule and a variety of entrances guarantee that the only people who will ever know you retained Selective Search are the tight-lipped staff, yourself, and—ultimately—your better half.
The success of Selective Search has made Adler one of the most sought after experts in the matchmaking field. She’s a cited authority in publications such as Forbes, Fortune, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal. She also authors two relationship columns for publications in the Chicago area.
“Mostly, people just want to know that there are good men and women out there who actually want to be in a committed relationship,” says Adler. “For someone that actually wants to be in a relationship—I don’t care how picky they are—we can make it happen. That’s what we do. If you want to know where all the eligible men and women in the Chicago area are, they’re with us.”
