Our Priority Search Process
In searching for the right talent to serve within your organization, we leave nothing to chance.
That’s why we offer the time-tested and highly effective Charles Aris Priority Search Process. This 14-step approach identifies, qualifies and delivers the talent you need, so you can successfully fill mission-critical roles.
Our process begins with a deep dive into the technical skills and personality traits you expect in a top candidate. We assign a project team of search consultants who work with you every step of the way to find talent with the perfect blend of these attributes.
By the time they are presented to you, candidates have been rigorously vetted through interviews, extensive reference checks and 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 start to finish - and beyond. That’s the Charles Aris Priority Search Process.
