Our Process

Our process is broken into four phases, each one includes specific executable steps to ensure a smooth hiring experience.

Phase 1: Initialize the search

Step 1: We develop the main message.
Discussion that addresses market position, competitive landscape, organizational structure, corporate culture and value proposition.


Step 2: We define requirements for the search.
Full needs analysis resulting in written search assignment (i.e., position requirements, roles and responsibilities, benefits and compensation, etc.).


Step 3: We brief our team.
Each member of the search team is oriented to the agreed upon objectives of the project.


Step 4: We create a search strategy.
Compile a targeted list of sources most likely to identify appropriate candidates. These sources include networking with industry contacts, executive level contacts, database and original sourcing calls.

Phase 2: Implement the Search

Step 1: We identify potential candidates.
Search team takes client message to market. Contacts targeted source list.


Step 2: We interview and qualify prospects.
Assess credentials, motivations, and career objectives and qualify achievements based upon client requirements.


Step 3: We check references.

Phase 3: Select the candidates

Step 1: We present list of candidates.

Step 2: We manage client/candidate interviews.

Step 3: We help you select the final candidates.

Consult with client to narrow down “short list” to finalists.


Step 4: We conduct pre-offer preparation.

Phase 4: Extend offer & close deal

Step 1: We present the offer to candidate.
