After investing extensive time and resources to understand our clients’ needs, we partner with them every step of the way from creating search materials, developing a search strategy, placing ads, and qualifying candidates through an extensive assessment process.

To engage us in a Priority search, clients pay a nominal refundable engagement fee per search. This payment guarantees that we will present our client with three qualified candidates within 15 business days, and we will provide a 90 day replacement guarantee.

Contingency search is an option recommended when the client will assume responsibility for a majority of the screening and vetting process, and when an employer anticipates interviewing candidates from multiple sources and/or when the hiring needs are less urgent.
