Working with the Right Search Firm for your Organization

Today I was speaking with a friend who is a recently retired university president. We were talking about his experience with search firms.

“I can tell you Keith, that I really like to deal with a search consultant who wants to work closely with me in understanding our strategic imperatives, threats and opportunities before, during and after presenting me with candidates for a key position in my cabinet.”

This was music to my ears because it is exactly what we strive to accomplish every day here at KULPER & COMPANY.

The first question we normally receive from a prospective client is —

“Can you help us with our search need?”

Every client comes to the realization that their search requires the right search firm in order for the outcome of the project to be successful. Almost always the client is more comfortable with a search firm that has experience completing searches that are similar in nature to their hiring need. For example a client needing to hire a new CEO will always feel more comfortable retaining the services of a search firm with a solid track record of success completing CEO search assignments. “Success begets success”.

Finding the right hired candidate

Every client who calls to speak with us about a potential search is concerned about finding the right candidate as soon as possible.

Here is an example of typical scenario:
A strategically critical position opens because a new leader needs the right person in a key position or due to a sudden resignation.

We get a call and after a few minutes the question is asked—“so, do you have any candidates for us?”
