5 Advantages of Using an Executive Search Firm

If you have a high level position that you are trying to fill, here are 5 major advantages to using an Executive Search Firm.

1. Time: What is yours worth?
After sorting through hundred of resumes, most of which do not match your needs, you may be wondering if there’s not a better way. A good Executive Search firm will only bring you 3-5 candidates who have been researched, interviewed, and screened for success. So, how much is your time worth?

2. Passive candidates are not looking
High level “A” players are out there, but they may be unaware of your opportunity because you’ve chosen job boards or postings on your website. You need an executive search firm to get their attention and engage them on why your opportunity is one they should consider.

3. Get the best talent available
Why settle for just those that responded to your advertising. Job postings can be effective for certain roles but they only reach active candidates. Often the best candidate is the one currently working for one of your competitors, and they aren’t looking at your postings.

4. You get what you pay for
And you pay for what you get. A good candidate will pay for themselves. Using an executive search professional to seek out the best talent will usually provide a return on investment much higher than simply hoping that person who applied will work out.

5. Your company is unique – so should be your candidate.
A good Executive Search firm will approach your search with a fresh viewpoint. It’s not about how many resumes one has. It’s about finding a talent that will assist your company’s success, and knowing where to quickly locate and bring that talent to you.
