We believe it is essential to pre-qualify your candidates. When you are selecting an executive search firm, be sure to include in your hiring checklist – Does this firm pre-qualify their candidates? In other words, does the firm pre-qualify candidates on their interest in making a job change? Is the candidate just looking to increase his compensation package or is he genuinely interested in a new opportunity?
You want to work with the firm that is dedicated to ensuring the candidates they present to you are in the job search for the right reasons. This pre-qualifying work keeps offer negotiations on the right track!
