Client Company Analysis
Define Position Search Criteria
A thorough understanding of the position responsibilities, (reporting relationships, staff size/type, scope of responsibility, level of authority, short– and long–range goals, etc.) is obtained along with the requirements necessary for satisfactory performance of the position (experience, special skills, education, personality profile, management style, etc.). Many Clients make use of our expertise during this process to help formulate the requirements of the position and to structure the compensation package necessary to attract the caliber of individual required.
Identify, Research and Screen Potential Candidates
Watkins & Associates conducts national or international searches based on the Client’s requirements. We seek candidates who have a proven track record in their particular fields. A search is directed toward successful individuals with skills, experience, and values that are compatible with the Client’s organization; individuals who can bring problem-solving capabilities and ideas either directly from a comparable organization or from another industry in which their talent will benefit the Client. Only serious candidates will be recommended for interview with the Customer.
Background And Reference Investigation
Watkins & Associates staff carefully check each candidate’s background and obtain multiple references from superiors, peers, subordinates, and outside associates.
