True Head Hunters - targeted and focused research uncovering off-the-radar candidates our competitors will not find Sourcing from a tired database
Managing Partners work on your search. Details will not be lost in translation. Sales teams win business and hand off the work to junior recruiters

Defined search process:

  • Our researchers are required to create a new call list for EVERY SEARCH with a minimum of 200 new names. We then layer in our networking and industry contacts
  • The first calls are to industry leaders to ask “who they know”
  • We know our candidates better and find out what’s NOT on paper

Tired search process

  • Retrieve a list from a previous search
  • Make redundant calls to candidates only
  • Transactional – they don’t take the “deeper dive” to truly understand culture fit and long term employment potential for both client and candidate

We say No to a search if we:

  • Are not subject-matter experts on the industry/role
  • Cannot commit the time we promise to the search
Always say YES because they have to support their huge overhead

Internally motivated –

Driven to “never let our clients down”
Externally motived – about the money
We are accurate storytellers -- we tell our clients’ unique stories with passion and knowledge Sell a job at all costs to close the search
At the end of every search, we call each significant candidate/contributor to thank them on behalf of our client (not just those who interviewed in person) Call back only the candidates who interviewed
Paid to Perform Model – Negotiated fee as down payment and full balance upon completion 1/3 down, 1/3 when present candidates, 1/3 upon completion – motivation drops dramatically at 2/3 point
We continue recruiting until an offer has been accepted, we unearth candidates through the entire search process Once candidates are in play, searching for new candidates stops and they begin pushing the existing candidates on their clients in order to finish the search.
