A background profile is developed on interested individuals. This includes: Personal data, education, work experience, technical qualifications and current responsibilities
We provide the candidate's resumes which we reformat for consistency and ease of comparison.
Three to six weeks from the start(based upon the initial search plan) we set a meeting to review interim candidates, accumulated research, present our observations and obtain approval to screen the leading candidates
At this point we formulate a new plan for the next stage.
We conduct interviews with leading prospects and document their personal accomplishments, style, background, and motivations.
This interview report also covers "capturability" and projects our estimation of client candidate compatibility
We brief and debrief candidates and client management, then arrange an introduction to the client's department where the talent is needed.
The extent of direct participation in the interview is dictated by our client.
