Search and Selection Process

Before you choose a search firm, you should be comfortable with its recruiting process. If your search firm relies exclusively on the Internet or an outdated database, it is likely that you will not be able to secure the best talent available.

We utilize the following customized process to conduct each search:

  • Needs analysis and customized recruiting plan
  • Profile development for each position
  • Extensive candidate research, screening and interviewing
  • Interview planning and qualified candidate presentation
  • Confidential reference checks
  • Counter-offer consulting
  • Employment offer preparation and closing
  • Client and new hire follow-up

You must be able to assure your candidates of complete confidentiality to attract the best talent. The same principle holds true for your company. As an employer, confidentiality is essential, particularly relative to competition.

When you engage us to fill an open position, we take every step to safeguard your company's confidentiality. The identity of your organization is protected until an interview is arranged. When your open position is discussed with a potential candidate, the unique advantages of the opportunity are emphasized, regardless of company identity.
