The Qualification Program
We’ve used our 25 years of recruiting experience to develop the assessment, screening, testing, and referencing processing to ensure the best possible skill and cultural match between employee and employer. Once a search has been contracted, we work closely with the client to understand the job assignment, the company culture and management style, so that we can effectively represent the client. We meet with key members of the management team to determine the position requirements, mission, values, personalities, goals, strategic direction and challenges. The search framework is customized to meet the specific needs of each client. A value-added benefit inherent in our search process is our uncompromising effort to present, in the best possible manner, the potential opportunity to work for each client company to all candidates.
The first step of any search assignment begins with the establishment of specific requirements for the position(s) being assigned. A job description is formulated to include the responsibilities and duties that the potential employee will be expected to perform. A listing of candidate qualifications is then established for work experience, educational background and personal attributes needed to excel with the company structure. When possible, an identification of target companies with similar positions is referenced to begin with the recruitment process.
Recruitment and Screening
Using our knowledge, expertise and experience, we contact individuals who possess attributes similar to the position requirements, through our comprehensive and confidential database. Each candidate is initially recruited and screened by telephone. Interviews are then conducted for those individuals with the appropriate qualifications and their background information is validated. This process enables us to hone our analysis of each candidate and present only those who possess the specific requirements for the positions.
Effective communication with the client is the key to successful completion of any search project. In addition to informal updates, clients receive progress summaries as frequently as requested. This enables us to make any modifications or additions to the search early in the process. Candidate profiles are conducted for each individual being considered for the position, including specific work history, educational background, personal attributes, current compensation and an assessment of the candidates’ abilities. We remain in contact with potential hires and act as a liaison to ensure that timely interviews are scheduled, travel arrangements are made, and the needs and expectations of both parties are effectively communicated.
Once a candidate selection is made, we work with the individual to understand and communicate his or her needs with regard to issues such as career objectives, compensation, and relocation, if any. We assist our client in the development of the compensation package, and act as a conduit to minimize and resolve any issues that may arise during the offer process.
