Process Step One:
Discovery Call or Meeting

Our first step is to uncover with you your company goals, challenges and primary needs. Once we discuss the bigger picture, we can define your need together. We’ll move on to discuss your company, the role, and expectations and your procedures for alignment. Ultimately, our discovery session sets up the search definition. It lays the groundwork to align talent to fit your organization and fill the need. It also allows us to accurately position and sell the company and career opportunity to top tier talent.

Lets’ talk about the discovery process as well as the rest of the steps in our process to fulfill your business goals through strategic talent acquisition.
