Our Process

long line

Initial Consultation:

We meet in person with you and your team to understand your organization, your employees, your culture, your goals, and what makes your company unique.

Search Strategy:

Working in conjunction with you, we develop a job description and determine what candidates must have in order to be considered for the position as well as what you would ideally like them to have. During this time we will determine target companies, industry trade groups, geographic locations, compensation and other factors to craft a comprehensive plan as to how we will attract and recruit desirable candidates.

Candidate Sourcing:

Utilizing the search strategy that we developed with you we will begin to reach out to candidates that fit the criteria we agreed to. Candidates will come from a variety of sources including referrals, online databases, our proprietary database, and other methods that proven to be successful.

Candidate Interviews and Assessment:

Through an extensive interview and assessment process we interview candidates to gain a thorough understanding of their employment history as well as their motivations, strengths, weaknesses, personality, horsepower, management style, and other personality traits. We know that it's necessary to find a candidate that not only has the technical skills, but also has the soft skills to fit in with your organization.

Presentation of Qualified Candidates and Client Interviews:

Candidates deemed to meet your qualifications will be presented to you with a resume, a write up speaking to their experience and personality traits, and their motivations. After you conduct your interviews we will provide feedback to both parties and move appropriate candidates forward in the interview process. We will work with you to refine the search if necessary.

Offer Negotiation and Onboarding:

Once you identify the candidate you would like to hire we work with you to shape the compensation package and we present it to the chosen candidate. Upon acceptance we assist the candidate as they give their notice and we keep in touch with them through the notice period.
