search-processShared Responsibility

It is our philosophy to offer our clients the best service possible. Building lasting partnerships is more important to us than making a quick sale. To ensure a high standard of executive recruitment services, we encourage our clients to take an active role. The benefits of an active partnership are many:

  • The better our briefing is upfront, the better we understand our clients’ specific needs and unique company culture.
  • This, in turn allows us to do a better job of matching qualified candidates.
  • Better screening and selection of candidates will save our clients time and money.
  • Thorough and prompt client feedback on resumes and interviews will improve the chances of attracting top candidates.

Process Flow

Provided below is an outline of the various steps we take to successfully fulfill a search.

Search Process

Needs Analysis

Together with the hiring manager, we review all necessary information which allows us to thoroughly understand the scope of the job. It is important for us to know the business goals linked to the position, as well as our client firm’s specific corporate culture. Based upon the information that we gather, we develop a specific profile for the ideal candidate for the position to be filled that goes above and beyond just the job description.

Research, Searching and Industry

Our extensive industry network is the primary source for finding passive candidates and referrals matching the defined profile. Initial screenings are followed by in-depth interviews where we evaluate candidates on their technical proficiency and their inter-personal and leadership skills.


We provide our clients with a comprehensive summary on every candidate that we deem a good fit, based on education, experience, chemistry and compensation.

Interview Preparation

Once a client selects a candidate to interview, we coordinate all the logistics to take the burden off the client. We also provide tools and resources to the candidate to ensure they are thoroughly prepared for the interview.


A detailed post-interview analysis with both candidate and hiring manager enables us to identify critical issues and facilitate decision making.

Confidential Consulting

We take an active role in advising our clients on compensation, benefits and relocation issues. Our goal is to facilitate sustainable win-win relationships between client and candidate.

Post Placement

After a candidate starts, we periodically follow up with him or her as well as the client to ensure everyone’s expectations have been met and the hiring was a good decision for both sides.

Please note that we do not discriminate in the acceptance or referral of candidates on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, marital status, disability, or other protected characteristics.

Terms and Conditions

Our fee structure is flexible and customizable to meet a client’s needs. We offer contingency, engaged and retained packages. We stand behind our work with a guarantee of identifying a replacement candidate at no additional charge in the event the place individual leaves voluntarily or is terminated with cause within the guarantee period.
