Search and Selection Process

Before you choose a recruiting firm, you should be comfortable with its search and selection process. If your recruiting firm relies exclusively on the Internet or an outdated database, it is probable that you will not be able to secure the best talent available. We utilize the following in-depth and comprehensive process to conduct each search:

  • Needs analysis
  • Strategic planning
  • Position profile
  • Research companies and candidates
  • In-depth candidate interviews
  • Present qualified candidates
  • Candidate preparation
  • Client company preparation
  • Candidate debrief
  • Client company debrief
  • Confidential reference checks
  • Counter-offer consulting
  • Make offer and close
  • Client and new hire follow-up
  • References
Confidentiality

You must be able to assure your candidates of complete confidentiality to attract the best talent. The same principal holds true for your company. As an employer, you don’t want your competitor to know that you have an open territory or position, as it may be perceived as a weakness.

When you retain us to fill an open position, we take every step to safeguard your company’s confidentiality. We will sell potential candidates on your opportunity based on your unique advantages, which may include:

  • Size
  • Growth rate
  • Track record
  • Management team
  • Funding
  • Technology
  • Growth potential
  • Client list
  • Solution
  • Value proposition

The identity of your organization is protected until you decide who you want to interview from our short list.
