It's true; there's only so much a recruiter can do before a client/candidate interaction takes over. But at CLGS, our instinctive, creative, yet detailed steps make certain we do everything possible to prepare you before, during and after your candidate communication.
In this section, we offer examples of the in-depth documents we provide. Each is provided in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format. To begin, choose from the items above.
The position profile is a critical tool used in the networking, recruiting and evaluation phases of our process. This vital document sells your company and describes the position in great detail, while painting a picture of the ideal candidate. The position profile also guides our questions during candidate interviews and reference checks.
A unique and distinguishing element of our process is the transcribed candidate interview. Rather than depend on our memories and note-taking abilities, CLGS tapes initial candidate interviews, transcribes them and submits them along with the candidate resume or summary. The transcripts, coupled with our between-the-lines insights, provide far greater detail than resumes alone.
For those executives and/or hiring authorities who appreciate our unique transcribed interviews but need to cut to the chase, we develop a search-specific Candidate Summary. We tackle, tighten and trim the interview transcripts and present the significant details in summary fashion for easy review.
Candidate reference checks leverage relationships, the most critical resource a search consultant must possess and continue to build. We conduct these references at various stages of the search process. They provide insights from a great variety of directions including peers, direct reports, board members and bosses. Either verbal or transcribed communication is supplied as a means to paint a thorough, in-depth picture of a candidate’s experience, abilities, demeanor and personality.
What did they think of you, the team, the board, your choice of wine? The debrief is a critical tool. It relays candidate feedback, perceptions and evaluations at various points of the process. Sometimes provided verbally, sometimes presented as concise transcripts, these communications illuminate who a candidate is and often help our clients better understand their own needs, culture, teams and the position itself.
