Why Work with a Search Firm When Hiring
Executives and human resources leaders work with Linsey Careers when they are looking to hire communications and marketing professionals who have a track record for being among the top 20 percent in their field. We partner with our clients to ensure we are presenting only candidates who match at least 90% of the skills outlined, and are a cultural fit. We are successful because of our search process.
Defining Success: Right from the start we partner with you to conduct an in-depth analysis of the position specifications, define cultural attributes that are necessary for success at your organization, and determine the business results that will be achieved by the candidate in their first three, six, 12 and 24 months on the job. From there, we create a Success Profile™ for the position that will guide the search to find quality talent.
Research: Strategic planning for the most effective means for sourcing target candidates. Extensive integration of industry resources, virtual communities, associations, and proven direct sourcing approaches. Recruiting: Supported by an extensive database and comprehensive network of candidates and companies, we actively seek exceptional candidates from direct competitors and parallel industries locally, regionally or nationally.
Assessment: The most important step in the process. Combining behavioral and targeted interviewing techniques, clients are ensured that the candidates presented posses all necessary, as well as many desired skill sets, which predict their value as a top performer within the company.
Interviewing: We provide a high tough approach to ensure proper scheduling, candid feedback and tailored advice, thus ensuring a smooth and seamless hiring decision.
Acceptance: Consultation, negotiation and presentation of all elements surrounding an employment offer. We provide hands-on involvement to ensure the desired candidate accepts the offer and becomes a long-term promotable team member.
Why Candidates Should Connect with Us
If you are a marketing or communications leader, the time to get to know our executive recruiters is before you are in job search. We want to know more about you and what your career goals are so that we can reach out to you when we have job opportunities that are of interest and a fit for you.
Here are a few recommendations for how to introduce yourself to us:
- Send us your resume and include details in your email such as the types of roles you would be open to hearing about, your preferred geography and salary requirements. If we’re working on something that is a match in that moment, we will give you a call.
- Connect with us on Linked In. We recommend you write a personal note rather than using the Linked In standard message indicating you want to connect. Tell us why you’d like to connect.
- Follow us on Twitter (@linseycareers) and our company page on Linked In.
