How to Work with Concrete Jobs
Provide us with a complete job description.
The more information you provide for us, the less time it will take us to find the right candidate for your opening. Most candidates evaluate every aspect of a job offer: the position, the location, the salary, the company, etc. Our Search Consultants must be prepared to answer questions, and having the details speeds the process.
In order to attract the best possible candidates, you must present to us as many details as possible about your company and the opportunity available.
Be honest about the position.
Provide us with the required qualifications and the details of the compensation package available. Provide us with feedback on resumés submitted as quickly. If you do turn down a candidate, tell us the real reason why. This will help us to narrow our search to that right fit. Your feedback gives us the information to insure the search is heading in the right direction.
Allow us reasonable access.
Allow us access to the hiring managers via phone or email. We don't want to take your place in the process, but the hiring managers know more about the person they need; such as specific technical expertise, culture of their department, succession plans, etc.
Stay in contact with your Search Consultant.
Return phone calls/emails as soon as possible. We may be calling you about the perfect candidate. Not responding sends us the message that the opening is not a priority. For candidates with specialized skills and industry experience, many of them will have options to consider. Lack of feedback on your part may lead candidates to questions your interest in them.
Keep us in the loop.....in the offer and negotiation phase as well.
We can help reduce the chance of turn-downs when we are involved at the start of the offer process. We know the marketplace as well as our candidate's professional, financial, and personal bottom line. We continually counsel our candidates on the dangers of counteroffer acceptance.
