Instant: Executive Search
In conjunction with our award-winning technology staff augmentation services, Instant Technology offers a discreet, yet aggressive and successful approach to IT sourcing right up to the Executive level for full-time roles.
Our experience is that the most successful searches begin with a mutual agreement between the search firm and client on clearly defined role responsibilities and expectations for the position being filled in order to deliver an exceptional pool of talented candidates, all of whom are qualified to meet those expectations.
Our senior personnel conduct all technology searches for which our firm is hired. Our clients benefit from our many years of local and national technology search experience, direct sourcing methods, contacts in the technology field, honesty and integrity. We will personally conduct interviews and reference checks, and provide our clients with the individualized expert focus that their highly important search deserves.
Instant: Executive Search is a technology search firm, pure and simple. Our expertise is in technology; our contacts, organizations to which we belong, and our professional work experience is all technology related. Our knowledge of the industry ensures the best possible match between the candidate and the client’s job requirements, culture, compensation, and career opportunity overall.
Approach to the Search
Our success starts with recognizing the client’s unique organization and how the role fits into the firm. Then we work with our clients to define a detailed job description, expectations and/or goals for the near future, a compensation target range, and a clear reporting structure.
Our first step in working with a new client company is to clearly understand the role. This entails both an in-depth conversation with the hiring authority as well as an in-person meeting to get a good feel for the cultural environment.
Our second step is to identify, screen, and thoroughly interview prospective candidates. The top candidates are sent via email, which includes both a current resume and notes covering salary details and key information collected from our interviews.
The third step is to coordinate all interviews, gather feedback from both parties, and answer any follow-up questions.
Our fourth step is to negotiate the compensation package, which includes base salary, bonuses, vacation, start date and miscellaneous items. We are also happy to provide and check candidate references.
And our fifth and final step is to stay in touch with both the client and the hired candidate to ensure a smooth transition and mutual satisfaction.
Presentation of Candidates
All of our candidate submittals include a current resume and a detailed dossier, which is comprised of the following information about the candidate: details of recent projects, impact the candidate has had at their firm, current salary and bonus potential, reasons for considering a new job and any relevant information that is not usually in the resume.
This information is designed to help our client firms look beyond the resume and gain valuable insight into what we have learned from both a phone interview as well as a detailed in-person interview with the candidate.
