HOW WE WORK
ENGAGED SEARCH: FOUR STAGES TO SUCCESS
At The Talent Shop, our engaged search model is the key to your success. Our points of difference begin in our initial meetings and how we get to know you to how we go about defining and finding your just right candidate to our guaranteed placements.
Getting to Know You
We work hard to truly understand our clients, your brand, company culture, personalities, and work environments, as well as your competitors and the marketplace. Our efforts not only find the candidate you are seeking, but also one that will better your business. Jill and her team will visit your workplace, meet with stakeholders, ask detailed questions about your hiring successes and failures, and get to know what works for your company and what doesn’t.
Defining Your "Just Right" Candidate
Now that we know your brand, we dig deep to thoroughly understand the skill set and competencies required for the position. Jill and her team will interview company leadership and candidate supervisors to establish what we call your three must haves and three nice to haves for the candidate. This information, combined with everything we have learned about your company, is our basis to develop a refined and specific candidate profile. Much more than a typical job description, your candidate profile will be instrumental in finding your just right candidate.
Research & Discovery
The Talent Shop prides itself on our process for uncovering talent for your company. With our special blend of established connections nationwide, novel discovery tactics, industry wisdom, and innovative assessment systems, we are confident in every candidate we send to a client. We seek passive hires, candidates who are currently employed and not currently on the job market. Once we have identified a candidate, we put them through a two-tiered assessment process to assess each candidate’s competency and cultural fit. The first assessment examines their behavioral and developmental skill set and professional approach, and the second assessment determines if they are capable of doing the job.
The candidate pool that is left earns The Talent Shop seal of approval.
Recommendations & Placement
We recommend our approved and vetted candidates, providing detailed information on why we think they are a good fit for the position and for your company. We arrange interviews and provide consultation through your entire review and hiring process. If the hire is unsuccessful, or fails within 90 days of placement, we work to find you another viable candidate.
