PHASE 6: RECRUITING

Once a qualified candidate has been identified, they are handed over to the recruiter to guide them through the end-to-end hiring process. Hire “A-Player” talent required to execute the go-to-market strategy for your company.

 

A coordinated administrative process assures that a consistent and objective analysis of each candidate is provided. A centralized effort eliminates confusion not only with the candidate, but within the organization as a whole.
