RETAINED EXECUTIVE SEARCH
In addition to a thorough understanding of your company, we will develop a complete knowledge of the position to be filled in enough detail to sell potential candidates on the merits of your position and your company.

Our firm will determine and implement a search plan to produce the most highly qualified short list of candidates in the shortest possible time frame. This will be a targeted approach guided by the unique requirements, specifications and responsibilities required by your position and your company culture.
Your retained search will be assigned to a specific consultant who will take responsibility for leading, directing and executing your search. However, your search will receive the attention and resulting synergy of each and every one of our search consultants.
We will make many targeted contacts and conduct initial telephone screening interviews. Because we were one of the first search firms to totally computerize the entire search process in 1982, we are well equipped to target candidates with the qualifications tailored to the specific requirements of your position. As a result of constantly refining our systems and categorizing candidates based on general industry experience, specific product knowledge, positions held, salary, potential, management skills and leadership ability, personality traits, willingness to make a career change, ability to accomplish a geographical relocation, input regarding their performance from industry insiders and many other factors, we are ideally positioned to develop a recruiting plan designed to contact the best qualified candidates for your position in the shortest possible time frame.
We will develop a list of qualified candidates and meet with them personally to interview them in more detail and further assess their abilities to be presented as short list candidates to you, the client company.
