Candidates

At Beyond-Search, we understand your needs for clear and honest information concerning ongoing searches. Candidates must have good information to make knowledgeable decisions. The candidate process is divided into four phases:

  1. Initial Contact
  2. Presentation to Client
  3. Interviews
  4. Post Interview/Placement

 

1. Initial Contact

All calls to new or existing candidates are based on open positions or potential opportunities. In rare cases, exceptional candidates are selected for “exclusive representation” (see below). The focus on initial candidate conversations is to determine if there is an opportunity for a mutually beneficial relationship – can Beyond-Search help the candidate and vice-versa.

 

2. Presentation to Client

If both Beyond-Search and the candidate agree that an existing position is a good fit, the process is begun to present the candidate. Specific experience relevant to existing experience will be discussed. This information is included in the initial candidate presentation and is also serves as useful preparation for upcoming interviews.

 

3. Interviews

The interview is the goal of any candidate presentation. For each interview Beyond-Search will pre-brief and debrief the candidate to increase the chance of a successful interview. An “interview prep” sheet is sent before an initial interview.

 

4. Post Interview/Placement

Irrespective of outcome, Beyond-Search seeks to provide a positive experience to all candidates.

If the final result is a placement, Beyond-Search will assist the candidate in making the transition to the new employer.

If the candidate is not selected for the position, Beyond-Search will do a final “close-out” discussion to better position the candidates for future opportunities.

 

Exclusive Representation:

In rare instances, a candidate will be selected for “exclusive representation”. Beyond-Search will agree to market this candidate to a few select companies in exchange for a 30 day period of exclusive representation.
