PROCESS OF A SEARCH

Incorporating the desires of the hiring authority with the cultural needs of the organization as well as identifying the functional requirements of the position is a skill that provides you ideal candidates in a timely manner.
 
Identifying Your Needs: Initializing a search needs direct communication between the consultant and hiring authority and helps both to crystallize exactly what requirements are needed in a candidate.
 
The Job Order is the first step. This is a good time to set a deadline for hiring. A search is typically initiated within 24hrs of agreement of terms with candidates presented within 5 working days.
 
Position Description: J Ross Associates takes the information from the Job Order and any other pertinent research information and creates a Position Brief -outlining specific responsibilities, skills required and characteristics of the position. This, along with the standard agreement of terms is the working mandate for the Client Partner to start a search.
 
Search Process: The position is advertised. Simultaneously, networking and targeted search techniques are implemented and interviews conducted to determine that both parties agree the applicant is qualified, available and interested in being a potential candidate.
 
Presentation of Candidates: Once qualified by the Client Partner, the candidates experiences, salary expectations and other relevant information will be presented to the Hiring Authority and the HR Rep.
 
Interviews: The Client will communicate desired interview schedules with the Client Partner in order to set up either a telephone interview or face to face interview with the candidates. A second interview will be established or candidate will be released from the process.
 
Offer: After the interviews, any offer details will be discussed with the hiring authority/HR and JRA before a verbal offer is made and accepted. Satisfaction Guaranteed; Follow up calls will be made once the candidate is on board with both the candidate and hiring authority.
