:: Executive Retained Search
DACOM's Retained Search provides a precise, surgical
approach to recruiting needed for achieving maximum results. By utilizing
a single source who is both knowledgeable and experienced in your
technology and/or industry, you will maximize the probability of success.
When dealing with multiple recruiting sources, the possibility of
misrepresentation or miscommunication becomes more likely.
Search incorporates the latest techniques in search and recruitment
with a total commitment of time and resources. This approach should
be carefully considered when demand for specific experience is very
high and supply of potential candidates is low. Our search methodology
generally falls into four main
The first phase of the search is to work closely with you to develop
a complete and thorough understanding of the position to be filled
and the qualifications of the individual you are seeking. Equally
important will be a clear perception of the unique characteristics
of the environment in which the successful candidate will be working.
and Potential Candidate Identification
The second phase of the search involves an extensive research effort
to identify potentially qualified candidates and sources. During
this search, we will be using our proprietary databases, targeting
appropriate companies, sourcing key industry executives and doing
some confidential checking on potentially qualified candidates.
The result of this Phase will be the review of a "long-list"
of potentially interesting candidates.
Contact, Evaluation and Presentation
The third phase of the search involves our contacting the targeted
candidates to screen them for interest and qualifications. At the
conclusion of this phase, we would expect to present a final panel
of candidates or "short-list" for your consideration.
Referencing, Offer, Negotiation, Closure
The final phase of the search, the selection and closing, although
primarily your responsibility for execution, will be coordinated
by us. This will include the coordination of initial and subsequent
meetings with you and others as appropriate, the communication of
the results of each meeting to you and the candidates, the development
of a strategy for final offer, the management of a thorough reference
checking process, and the closing of the successful candidate and
the management of the transition.
