Our Five-Stage Recruitment Process Explained

By Ashley Ward

As a leading, national recruitment agency, we understand the importance of finding the right candidate for each unique role. We’ve developed a five-stage recruitment process that ensures we find the best possible candidates for our clients. Here’s how our five-step process works:

  1. Job Intake Meeting

The first stage of our recruitment process is the Job Intake Meeting. This meeting is where we get aligned with our clients on their mission, and values, and take a culture tour of the client’s company. We also set the job benchmarks we will use to measure candidates. This stage is important because it allows us to get a clear understanding of what our client is looking for in a candidate and the culture they want to foster within their organization.

  1. Sourcing Top Passive Candidates

Once we have a clear understanding of our client’s needs, we start sourcing top passive candidates. We use a variety of methods to find the best candidates, including the leading online tools, our deep candidate bench strength, referral sources, and networking. We also use our extensive database of candidates to find individuals who may not be actively looking for a job but would be a great fit for the role.

  1. Vetting Top Candidates Using Our Proprietary Compensatory Scoring Model

The third stage of our recruitment process is vetting the top candidates using our proprietary, compensatory scoring model. This model takes into account the key behaviors required for the role, as well as the candidate’s experience and skills. We use this model to identify the candidates who are the best fit for the job.

  1. Presenting The Top Tier of Candidates

Once we have actively headhunted and identified the top candidates, we present the top tier to our clients. This includes a candidate presentation, the candidate’s resume, and multiple psychometric assessment results that meet the criteria of the benchmarks we set with the client during the Job Intake Meeting. This stage allows our clients to get a clear understanding of each candidate and their potential fit within the organization.

  1. Guiding the Interview Process and Extending the Offer

The final stage of our recruitment process is guiding the interview process between the client and the candidate. We work with our clients to develop interview questions that are tailored to the candidate and provide guidance throughout the interview process. Once the interviews are complete, we help our clients narrow down the field of candidates to the final candidate. We then extend the offer to the selected candidate.

Our five-stage recruitment process ensures that we find the best possible candidates for our clients. By starting with a Job Intake Meeting to get aligned with our client’s mission, values, and culture, and using our proprietary, compensatory scoring model to vet candidates, we are able to present top-tier candidates that fit our client’s benchmarks. With this process, we are confident in our ability to find the right candidates for each job every time.
