Here is a very easy way to expedite your executive search. Once you sign the contract, be as available as possible for your recruiter, even if via email. We may need answers to questions when fine-tuning the position profile for your search. Or, even after the position profile has been established we often get new questions from candidates and want to ensure we are not pursuing a candidate that may be fantastic, but maybe doesn’t quite meet your specifications. I have found over the years that the clients I work with that can get back to me during the day, even if through email and not on the phone, are the searches I can deliver the highest quality candidates to in the shortest timeframe. These responses really don’t take long and can make ALL the difference.
