|HAVE YOU WORKED WITH A RECRUITER?|
Have you worked with a recruiter in the past? Here's how we work.
First of all, our services do not cost you a cent. We want to get to know you and find out what you like to do and what you do best. We'll try to get an idea of what you and your family really are looking for in a new opportunity. Your resume will not leave our desk unless you express interest and we decide to move forward.
If the opportunity we are currently working on fills that bill, we will review it with you extensively. If you are interested, we will send you information on the interview process and the company. We'll provide sources for you to do your own research. We are here to help you put your best foot forward throughout the interview process.
We want to make one thing perfectly clear to you at this time, we will not try to sell you on taking an opportunity. We will ask you for a decision, once you have all the facts, and will want to know why, if you are not interested in a specific opportunity, but we will not twist your arm to take a position. This does not work for any of us!
We will ask you to prepare for the interview by reading the material sent to you and by doing additional research on the company. We will schedule a specific 20 to 30 minute session to review what should be covered in each interview with the client. We'll tell you what we know about the interviewers.
And this is what we need from you.
When an interview is completed, either by phone or in person, We need your immediate feedback, good - bad- or indifferent! This is the only way we can facilitate the process. We must talk with you before we get back in touch with the hiring manager. We will want to know what was discussed, how did the hiring manager leave the interview with you and are you interested in the position and proceeding to the next step? If you are not interested in proceeding, we will want to know your reason(s). This will help us in screening other opportunities for you.
The Interview Process
Most clients we work with operate with two interviews. Usually, this involves (1) a telephone interview followed by (2) a face-to-face interview. It is very important for you to know that most of your decision process will occur prior to the face-to-face interview (if it is the second interview). Therefore, we want to make sure all your questions are already answered or will be answered at the time of the face-to-face interview.
The final decision at the face-to-face interview for you should be: are these people I can work with and is this a place where I want to work (providing the offer comes in as we had discussed previously). Assuming everything goes as planned (you wouldn't be going forward if that weren't the assumption, right?), we expect an offer within 24 hours and you need to be prepared to make a decision within 24 hours. As mentioned, we would have already discussed what the minimum offer must be prior to scheduling the final interview.
You will likely have questions about housing costs, insurance, relocation, etc. We want to make sure all these questions are answered before the interview and the only questions to be answered at the final interview will be: do I want to work here (is it what I expected?) and, are these people I can work with?
If you answer yes to both questions and if we get an offer
equal to or above what we have agreed to, then it is a done deal! You then accept, resign
your current position and never look back.
