A good executive search firm:
- Has a strong qualification process that ensures you’re only seeing resumes of candidates with the right tangible and intangible skills, and fit well into your culture
- Will share with you the impression candidates are getting from your company during the interview process. As Maya Angelou said so well, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
- Can tell you about the market; where things are trending and where you fall in comparison to your competitors, especially in candidates’ eyes.
- Is a firm with extensive experience recruiting in your industry and in the functional area of your open role. No firm can be everything to everyone.
The selection of the right executive search partner begins a successful process to help you make the best hires for now and the future.
