Our role in the search process is to help our clients identify
and recruit only the best, brightest and most talented professional
candidates who are an exact match for their specific needs. We
begin by meeting with the client to define the process and develop
a profile of the ideal candidate. It is imperative that we gain
a thorough and comprehensive understanding and develop insight
into the organization's philosophy, culture, mission, vision and
internal relationships. Jointly, we will develop a needs analysis
describing the position, qualifications, prior experience, history
of accomplishments and personal attributes. Additionally, we will
jointly develop a list of potential sources for candidates, develop
a search strategy and identify potential target markets.
Targeting Potential Candidates
We recruit the old fashioned way. We network. We get on the telephone
and confidentially approach those individuals whose experience,
credentials and accomplishments would best match the needs of
our client. We actively seek to uncover those individuals who
are not actively pursuing new opportunities, are very good at
what they do but might be interested in looking at the right opportunity
should it be presented to them. Our objective is to identify and
seek-out those individuals, tap them on the shoulder and present
them with a unique opportunity; quite possibly the opportunity
of a lifetime.
Potential candidates are interviewed and thoroughly screened
for a match against the client's profile. If initial contact indicates
a potential match and the candidate has expressed an interest
in pursuing the opportunity, an interview will be arranged. The
interview process is extremely thorough, probing all areas of
the candidate's background, experiences and history of accomplishments.
We will perform an in-depth check of both personal and professional
references. We will thoroughly probe the candidate's past performance
history paying close attention to the specific "must haves"
identified in the client's needs analysis.
