A Tracey-Auriema search typically includes the following steps:
First we listen to you. We learn your needs and gain an understanding of your vision of a successful candidate and the style needed to compliment your business culture. This defines the nature, level and direction of our search process.
Real time original research. We identify all potential industry sources and make direct contacts on your behalf—well beyond anything possible via a computerized database. These contacts include key individuals who have proven their value in the past as sources of industry talent.
Competitor contact. Direct contact with competitors. We stay away from anyone you would like us to avoid, if and when you request it.
Personal contact with those individuals identified by our search to determine their potential for your position.
Consultation with other executive search firms as needed to tap third-party databases.
Getting beyond the resume: We conduct in-depth interviews with potential candidates to determine their match with your requirements.
Contact assistance. We assist in setting up personal and phone interviews between you and the prospective candidate and assist with any of the travel arrangements when needed.
Negotiation support. We assist in negotiations between you and the candidate in such areas as compensation, relocation options, etc.
Background check. We check credentials, references, employment history and educational background as requested, and provide detailed reports.
Closing the deal. We’re not through until the deal is closed and you have the best candidate for the job. With initial input from you, we will handle your executive search on a turnkey basis.
