Search Process

Needs Analysis

What we hear over and over from potential clients is, “What I really want is someone who will truly listen to my needs”. While that sounds simple, truly listening can be difficult to do if all you’re interested in is checking the box and completing the transaction.

We want to know more than simply what the job entails. As such, we work diligently to become a seamless, accessible, and complementary partner to you and to your company. Your needs are our drivers. We do our own exhaustive research and work closely with you to understand your strategic, financial, and hiring objectives.


Documenting a precise job description is vital to a successful search. Today’s top professionals require more than general statements and directional bullet points about career opportunities. They demand specifics on the projects and responsibilities they’ll be challenged with as well as details about the work-life culture and growth opportunities you can offer.

Defining what you want – and what you don’t – is a critical step in the hiring process. Our consultative recruiting experts help you craft the language and create the opportunity that sets the stage for attracting first-rate talent. We help ensure that you hire not only a great person, but the right person.
