Partnering with a Search Firm
The single most important factor that will determine the ultimate success or failure of any organization is the energy and direction provided by its leadership. Hiring the right candidate is more critical than ever, and with the intense focus on honest, prudent and responsible leadership, the stakes are even higher. Because of this, employers in need of candidates with proven ability to make a real difference have turned to professional recruiting organizations for help when traditional recruiting methods fail to produce the best candidate for a specific job. Traditional recruiting methods, such as relying on networks, running ads or posting positions on the Internet, are reactive methods at best. They often fail to uncover the high-caliber talent not actively seeking new opportunities. Using a professional recruiter is an effective way to seek out and attract star-talent within competing organizations and from other industries as well. The search industry has more than tripled since 1993 and, while the tools of the trade have changed, the time-tested methods of the true search professional remain constant.
