Our search procedure

Initial briefing

(this is when we clarify what kind of candidates we need to find – which skills are very important and which are second priority. Also – what kind of personality you would like)

Assignment brief presented / approved (offer)

Target Identifications – thorough / pro-active

(the first step is to find and identify the companies where potential candidates work)

Candidate approach and first interviews

In this early phase of the search we need to find out whether the candidates contacted fit to the company (both personality and competences/experiences in regard to the profile). If positive we introduce them to our client.

Candidate presentation and more in depth interview(s)

After the first interview we present the suitable candidates pointing out their specific strengths and job-relevant experiences. This leads – if our client agrees – to the second and possibly third interview in the company.

During the whole search process we inform you continuously about the search process and what is happening

Afterwards we analyze the search with you in regard to your expectations to improve the cooperation and to increase the quality standards
