Our Priority Search Process
In searching the world for precisely the right talent for your organization, we leave nothing to chance.
That’s why we offer you the time-tested and highly effective Charles Aris Priority Search Process. This 14-step approach identifies, qualifies and delivers the talent you need.
Our process begins with a deep dive into the technical skills and personality traits you expect in a top candidate. Once we know exactly what you want, we assign a project team of search consultants who work with you every step of the way to find whom you want.
Our project team homes in on the best candidates — the ones who are qualified, available and interested. By the time they are presented to you, candidates have been rigorously vetted through interviews, extensive reference checks and, if need or want be, personality profiling.
After you and your team have personally interviewed the finalists and made your selection, we help seal the deal by managing a smooth offer and negotiation process. Once your winning candidate is in the job, we follow up to make sure the relationship is working well.
That’s first-class service from the starting gate to the finish line — and beyond. That’s the Charles Aris Priority Search Process.
