Understanding Your Business Needs
We take the time to thoroughly understand your operations, the specific requirements of the position to be filled and the corporate environment and management style into which the new employee will be placed. We then determine the skills, experiences and personal characteristics necessary to be successful in the position at your organization.
Our recruiting process is conducted through referrals and by contacting people in the work disciplines and businesses where qualified candidates are most likely to be. We do not rely on unsolicited resume flow or blind ads. The talented people we approach are generally not looking for a new position. Most likely, they have not circulated their resumes, nor are they currently reading help-wanted ads. They are the two-thirds of the qualified workforce who are unreachable except through a custom-recruiting approach. They are, however, people who may be interested in an opportunity when it is brought to their attention in a professional and discreet manner.
Once we have identified potential candidates, we perform in-depth interviews with each to determine if they meet all client requirements. Additionally we will uncover any personal or family issues that would restrict the candidate’s ability to join our client.
Then, we will match the candidate’s educational, professional and occupational skills to our client’s specific job requirements and needs. The next step is to confirm that the candidate’s past experience and successes will effectively contribute to achieving our client’s current and future goals. Then we will verify that a candidate’s personal style will complement the corporate culture and will mesh well with the hiring manager’s personality.
After that, we will evaluate the candidate’s long-term potential to take on additional responsibilities beyond the current needs.
As candidates express interest in the opportunity, we evaluate each against the criteria for the open position. We present for interview only those individuals who best fit the assignment profile. We will perform preliminary reference checks and education/certification validations prior to presenting the candidate.
After the interview or interviews, we debrief both you and the candidate, then follow up to ascertain the candidate’s interest, provide additional information and resolve any misunderstandings. We assist in composing and extending the offer and in negotiating any changes. When needed, we can also provide relocation assistance and cost-of-living comparisons.
Once the offer is extended, we stay in constant touch with the candidate and his or her family to resolve remaining issues and facilitate a prompt acceptance and early starting date.
