What is your process for finding candidates?
Our dedicated research associate will proactively recruit passive and active talent to develop our candidate slate. We are always looking beyond the active job seekers to find the best fit. The process of identifying “targets” to be converted into candidates begins with a clear understanding of the profile of the successful candidate as agreed upon by the board or other decision makers in the initial phase of the search.
Candidates can be surfaced from understanding and researching organizations where similar talent is found, referrals, our extensive ability to actively network, and our proprietary data base.
