How to select a search firm?


When it comes to selecting a placement company to partner with, not all search firms are the same. However, most firms begin to look and sound the same when you evaluate them.

There is a BIG difference between firms and their approaches to the search.
In evaluating firms, We recommend you know the answers to the questions below:

  1. How much tenure do their recruiters have?
  2. Do they have the background, resources and technology to be effective?
  3. Who specifically will do what work?
  4. Will you receive dedicated resources?
  5. How much time and energy can you expect the recruiters to invest?
  6. What message will they use to market your company? 

Prodigy Placements treats each client and assignment individually. The complexity of the search, level of the position and client's own sense of urgency all play a role in developing an appropriate approach.
An assignment game plan is then developed around these ten steps below:

  1. Introductory consultations and needs assessment
  2. Position and company profiling
  3. Research and direct sourcing plan
  4. Candidate contact and identification
  5. Candidate evaluation
  6. Presentation of qualified finalists
  7. Candidate/client interviews
  8. Background verification
  9. Final selection and negotiation
  10. Transitioning steps and follow-up 

We execute these steps with industry tenured consultants fully dedicated to your search! Our success is proven with a track record of placed candidates with “blue chip” clients!!!
