Why wouldn’t I use contingent search and engage multiple firms to work on my position? That way, I’ll have a lot more recruiters working on my behalf.

We only recommend engaging multiple firms if you have an extremely challenging position to fill, such as a position that’s located in an undesirable location or if the required skills are very rare.

How long will it take before we begin to see candidates?

Every search assignment is different and there are many factors that can impact the time-to-fill metric such as job location, compensation package, skill set demand, labor market competitiveness, company reputation, etc. With that said, for non-executive searches we strive to generate a slate of qualified candidates within two weeks of kicking off the search assignment. For executive-level searches such as Director-level up to C-level, it typically takes longer.

There would be no additional cost for replacing a candidate and the candidate guarantee period is 120 days for most searches, with longer candidate periods for retained or executive searches. Contact us if you’d like to learn more about our candidate guarantee program.
