Our clients expect us to understand the cultural nuances of their unique environments and integrate that knowledge into our search process to identify candidates who meet both the hard and soft skill requirements to thrive, engage, and contribute to the team successfully.

What sets us apart from other similar firms is our comprehensive approach to recruiting.  We understand that the best candidate is not just someone who fits a job description, but someone who will be a significant contributor and an asset to our client. To this end, we learn not only the logistics of a job, but we also strive to understand our client’s company culture and environment in order to identify the best candidate for any given role. Our recruiters work as a team, with no internal competition, and this approach ensures that our clients get our absolute best candidates for their open positions.

Our in-depth evaluation process begins when the recruiters first review a candidate’s resume, continuing through each stage until they are hired by our clients. Candidates are evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • The overall presentation of their resume

  • Format, quality and clarity of information provided, grammar and spelling

  • During initial phone screen and virtual/in-person interviews

  • Professional presentation and communication skills, ability to explain their career history and relevant skills and experience

  • Candidate’s career goals and characteristics to determine overall fit for a position and for a client

We further evaluate our candidates by doing the following:

Administering a skills assessment test to measure their proficiency with MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook), Spelling and Grammar, and typing

Verifying degrees and certifications listed on the resume

Conducting in-depth professional reference checks

Noting every professional interaction with the candidate, such as email exchanges and phone communication

This thorough process has enabled Ford to identify the best candidates for its clients and create long-term placements that has benefit both candidates and clients.

We listen, ask key questions, and refine the process

Our refined process has led our team to consistent success in recruiting for the area’s discerning business market.

We ensure our clients’ priorities, role requirements, company culture, and objectives are taken into consideration for every search. We have an extensive pool of talent to quickly identify strong candidates for your open positions, taking the burden of time and energy off your shoulders.

We do the same for candidates, actively listening to career desires and goals during each interview, and presenting realistic options and timelines for employment.
