Last week we talked about four reasons to hire an executive search firm to help with your talent challenges. If you missed it, go to https://www.verriez.com/post/why-work-with-a-search-firm.
Here are some additional advantages of partnering with a reputable executive search firm:
5. Passive Candidates: There are lots of fantastic candidates who would never think to click on a job ad; they are happy where they are, and they are busy! A good executive search firm can find these potential candidates and have a candid conversation about their goals, potentially sparking interest.
6. Functional or industry knowledge: Some search firms specialize in a functional specialty, like senior finance, or a certain industry. If you know you want specific skills or candidates from a specific industry sector, there’s sure to be a search firm that has the knowledge you need.
7. Higher Quality Candidates: A good search firm will work with you to fine-tune the job description and candidate profile, and present only candidates that are a good match. This will save you time and headaches.
8. Negotiation: Do you want a job offer to fall apart at the last minute? Probably not! It’s better to have a partner who knows exactly what a candidate is looking for and can negotiate an offer that is sure to be accepted.
