Grobard & Associates, Inc., a contingency search and recruiting firm, is a
client driven company primarily representing the client in the search and
recruitment of talented and qualified personnel to fill their position openings.
Being a contingency search firm, we always receive payment for a placement by
the client – never by the candidate.
Our process begins with what is
known as a job order, an order from the client that describes the position
opening and the type of individual they are looking to employ.
Once this job order, with a full
description of the required qualifications is received, we begin our search.
At this stage we are in touch
with the hiring and/or human resource manager to establish the exact profile of
the person they are looking for.
After understanding the client’s
wants and needs we concentrate on matching only those candidates that have
passed our strict evaluation process to be sure they are a fit. We will not
waste the client’s time by referring candidates that do not qualify for the
We exhaust every tool at our
disposal to source the qualified candidates for each job opening. We first
search our vast database for those candidates that possess the necessary
background and qualifications for the position to be filled.
Our search also includes
obtaining referrals from those successful people currently in the industry,
direct recruitment of those individuals in the client’s specific industry and
recruiting potential candidates that are not necessarily looking for a new
position. We will also use the Internet to source qualified candidates.
After resumes are received from
candidates, they are reviewed for content and accuracy. The candidates we feel
are a suitable fit are then evaluated – they are subjected to a very intensive
and thorough interviewing process. Only those that pass the interviewing process
will be considered as a possible referral to the client.
We will then have dialog with the
hiring official about the candidates we feel are a superior fit – those we feel
will excel and have the potential to contribute the very most to the client. We
will not waste the client or candidate’s time by just haphazardly forwarding
resumes of those that are not qualified – we will not refer a candidate without
his or her permission.
After the client has selected
those candidates that he or she feels are qualified, we begin arranging and
coordinating the interviewer’s schedule.
Prior to the interview we coach
and prepare the candidate for the interview process. One of the very important steps in the
process is to have the candidate research our client company and the products or
services they provide.
We guide the candidates through
the interviewing process providing them with information on what will be
required from them when they are interviewed. When a candidate is being
interviewed, he or she will be fully prepared for any eventuality – ultimately
saving the interviewer considerable time and effort.
Our follow up on situational
questions is second to none as we remain in constant contact with the client and
candidate throughout the interviewing process.
The time consuming procedures we
follow are a benefit to both the
client and candidate. The client benefits by receiving a number of qualified
candidates from which to choose - the candidate benefits by being fully prepared
for the interview.
