Our Procedural Approach to Filling Open Positions

For each position you ask us to fill, we will follow specific procedures to identify and recruit the

most qualified candidates. This process gives us a higher predictability in our searches.

  • After careful analysis of your needs, we will define the position responsibilities and desired characteristics of the ideal finalist for the position. This document, referred to as the position description, provides pertinent information to potential candidates / sources and ensures a mutual understanding of the requirements of the position.

  • We will contact a carefully targeted group of passive, potential candidates and candidate sources, describing only the position we are seeking to fill, while maintaining confidentiality, as required. Since it is our desire to create a partnership with you, during the course of this engagement, any candidate information you receive in resume/s from us must remain confidential.

  • Qualified candidates will be interviewed in-depth by the appropriate member or members of our search team. This enables us to evaluate each candidate’s chemistry, personality, presence, qualifications and suitability to the job.

  • We will provide you with written career information on candidates, as well as written and/or oral assessments of their personal and professional suitability to the position. We will also include resumes and when appropriate, Selected Project Lists.

  • After we have reviewed the recommended candidates with you, we will arrange meetings for you with the most qualified individuals whom you choose to interview and professionally prepare them for the rigors of the interview process.

  • We will also conduct in-depth reference interviews and provide confidential written reference reports on finalists. These reports summarize information provided by third parties who are, or have been, in a position to evaluate a candidate professionally and personally. Because the majority of individuals who become candidates in a search are not actively seeking an outside opportunity, but rather have been approached by our search team and asked to consider a career move, it is important to protect the candidate’s confidentiality. Therefore, reference checks will be conducted only after you have indicated strong interest in a particular individual and are prepared to make an offer to that individual. Informal checks, however, are made throughout the course of the evaluation process.
