Why you should
care about how your company and your staffing requirements
are presented in the marketplace?
When you are
seeking a key employee, do you know how you are being presented
in the marketplace?
By that I mean
how are you being perceived in your staffing need by the potential
candidates who might be qualified for the opportunity and
hear of the position either through your advertisement, a
call from your HR department, another employee, or from a
Is there a consistent
presentation of you and your need?
What do you think happens when different people -- employees
looking for a bonus, associates trying to help someone they
know get a job, a variety of recruiters - all present your
position at the same time?
Besides the obvious
that the message delivered is inconsistent and that you really
don't know what you are seeking, there are other far more
- Candidates who do come in for
interviews all have a different idea of what the job is
about and therefore interview differently for the position.
That makes a hiring decision harder for you because you
have no consistent model to choose the best from.
- Without a consistent model for
interviews your decision may be based more on who interviewed
better rather than who really has the skills that you want
and has demonstrated that they can do the job.
- Many candidates will come to
the interview with a preconceived and often erroneous idea
of the functions required in the position or of the compensation
expected. This often creates difficulty when an offer is
made and leaves strong potential for having the offer rejected.
- Without a consistent and agreed
upon understanding of the requirements being sought for
your position, others in your company also involved in the
interviewing screening process, will inevitably see each
candidate with a different set of criteria making it more
difficult to reach consensus on the best candidate. This
also creates divergent interviewing situations for the candidate
and sends an unhealthy message that no one will be able
to be successful in the position.
- These hiring conditions increases
the difficulty of attracting top candidates, use valuable
time and expenses in interviewing unqualified and unprepared
candidates, and most importantly delay reaching the goals
that require fulfillment of the position in the first place.
Have you experienced these conditions and frustrations in
trying to fill key position?
Wouldn't you like to be represented
in the marketplace as a professional who is seeking A-level
candidates for your critical requirements? Wouldn't you like
to avoid the pitfalls of inconsistent interviews and disorganized
interviewing committees? Isn't it time for you to use your
interviewing time to evaluate and attract the best?
Here's how we present your requirements
to qualified candidates.
After we complete an extensive discussion
with you about the requirements - this usually takes anywhere
from 30 to 60 minutes -- we return to you for your approval
a multi-page position profile that includes information about
your company, the position being sought, expectations and
first year deliverables, critical issues surrounding the functional
responsibilities, and direct requirements for a qualified
candidate. Besides being able to use this profile internally
with the rest of your interviewing team, we provide the document
to candidates who are qualified directly for your position.
Each candidate then provides us a special document on their
abilities that directly relate to your requirements.
We then present to you a complete
multi-page profile on each qualified candidate directly relating
to the functional requirements you seek and a complete background
on the person's accomplishments and personality.
Now when you meet each candidate, you and your interviewing
team will have a complete background on each person and the
exact position requirement providing a more consistent and
professional evaluation method.
This process allows for more intense
interviews, a better use of everyone's time, and we can tell
you conclusively through our experiences have resulted in
Doesn't this sound like a more professional
way to have your company presented and more effective way
to successfully hire the top people you want?

working for you.
We provide the solutions to identify,
qualify, and recruit top individuals quickly and cost effectively.
Effective hiring of top talent is not made easier by Internet
postings that bring massive amounts of average, under-qualified,
or unqualified applicants. Sourcing, qualifying, and recruiting
top talent is still a personal identification process that
we, as committed, professional, and experienced industry-specific
recruiters, do best.
