How We Work With You

we have a strong recruiting methodology that ensures that we find strong candidates for you and progress all the way to offer and acceptance in record time. Steps we undertake include the following:

Step 1 — Needs Assessment (1 day)
Prior to conducting a search for you, our associates conduct a visit to your office to learn about the specifics of the search. If this is the first engagement between our two companies, our associates will enhance their understanding of the structure, strategy, culture, and policies of your company. The more we understand about your business and your needs, the better we can serve you.

Step 2 — Preparation and Confirmation of Job Description (2 days)
Based on initial discussions with you, we prepare a written job description that defines the scope and responsibilities of the position. We also identify and prioritize the professional and personal qualifications that you require in an ideal candidate. Upon your final approval, this written job description serves as the master recruiting guideline for our associates.

Step 3 — Candidate Research (2 to 4 weeks)
We develop a research plan to identify potential candidates. We do this via our in-house research staff and our extensive network of industry contacts. Where appropriate, we also leverage our existing proprietary database of candidates, all of whom have been pre-qualified through previously conducted interviews with our associates. We provide you with detailed profiles of prospecitve candidates, saving valuable time in the initial stages of the search. We work with you to answer important questions about prospective candidates and, together, we finalize a list of targeted candidates. Our associates then contact targeted candidates and assess their interest level in the position and their ability to achieve the objectives defined in the written job description.

Step 4 — Candidate Assessment and Presentation (1 to 4 weeks)
Our associates conduct in-depth interviews with candidates who pass our initial screening. We assess work experience, management style, personal characteristics and other essential criteria. We conduct reference checks. We then present resumes and interview summaries to you for review and discussion. This presentation provides a detailed outline of the candidates' business experience and our evailuation of their strengths, weaknesses, management style and personality profile. After establishing a final list of candidates, interviews with your management team are scheduled for those candidates that you have selected.

Step 5 — Interviews, Final Feedback, and Offer (1 to 4 weeks)
Face-to-face in-depth interviews are conducted. Participant feedback is reviewed to determine next steps. At the end of this process, an offer is extended to a highly qualified candidate. Employment negotiations are conducted and final terms of an agreement are defined and communicated.

Step 6 — Return-on-Investment (ongoing)
To attain your complete satisfaction, we work to ensure a smooth transition for the executive into the new position and we stay in touch and monitor the performance of the chosen executive to ensure that you are happy with the search results.
