Our Focus and Some Benchmarks
Our front-end focus is on candidate research plus initial candidate contact and
development. Candidate development includes candidate screening, qualifying,
selling, and individual candidate profile development.
We begin with documenting the job specifications, confirming appropriate target
companies, and determining the cost of the search.
Pricing can be customized in terms of the scope of the search, including the number of
target companies, the number of positions, and the number of candidates to be
developed. Search configuration and pricing remain flexible, as necessary, to meet
our clients' needs. Searches are typically priced from $13.5K to $15K.
The initial two to three weeks (approximately) is dedicated to research. During the
next two to three weeks, which is dedicated to candidate screening and profile
development, our clients receive daily emails of candidate profiles.
A typical search will involve researching approximately 75-100 candidates, and
contacting and profiling approximately 60 of those candidates. More extensive
searches may require researching 100+ candidates, and contacting and profiling more than 60 of those
candidates. Depending upon the search, typically about 20% to 25%
(and frequently more) of the contacted candidates are open to our clients' follow-up
contact for the purpose of further screening, interviewing, selling, and final closing.
Upon completion of the search, our clients receive original hard copies of all submitted
profiles and a complete database report for their search. The database report consists
of all candidate names, companies, titles, phone numbers and the status of each
candidate's interest in our clients' opportunities. This information may be used for
future recruiting, and clients may make as many current or future hires as possible at
no added expense.
D&A; submits a net 30 days invoice at the beginning of the search. Most searches are
typically 75% or more completed by the end of 30 days. By the time payment is
actually received, our involvement is usually completed, or near completion.
