The Search Process

Because every client and each position are unique, we tailor our search process to match the right candidate with the right organization. Our success comes from our personal approach and techniques developed and refined over more than 36 years, with hundreds of clients. Working one-to-one with the client, we gain a thorough understanding of the position and organization that allows us to identify outstanding potential candidates. During the evaluation phase, we use our understanding and experience to gain a complete picture of the background, experience, and management style of the top candidates. We strive to find the best fit for our client in order to achieve a long-term successful placement.

We have found that the key elements of the search process can be tailored to fit the specific needs of our client and should include the following:

  • Developing a comprehensive position profile based upon information obtained in individual meetings with key management staff and others, as directed.

  • Reviewing current compensation and recommending changes based upon market and competitive conditions.

  • Developing a marketing strategy that taps professional contacts throughout the geographic area identified and supplements the extensive candidate identification process through selected advertising and use of the Internet.

  • Creating specific outreach to attract women and minority candidates to consider the career opportunity.

  • Implementing a screening process that narrows the field of candidates to those that most closely match the needs of our client, including discussing results of preliminary reference checks on top candidates.

  • Conducting personal interviews with the top candidates that meet the stated criteria.

  • Assisting during the interview and the selection process, including an optional Assessment Center, if desired.

  • Delivering a product in the form of a search report that recommends the top group of candidates and provides the client with detailed information about their backgrounds and experience from interviews and other sources.

  • Assisting in negotiating a compensation package.

At Ralph Andersen & Associates, we believe in an approach that meets our client's needs in terms of timetable and budget.
