WHY HIRE AN EXECUTIVE THROUGH INSIGHT?
In most cases, agency fees are the largest barrier for any enterprise to consider a candidate who’s being represented. In addition to the fees, there are agreements and other paperwork that slows down the process of bringing an ideal talent to a company.
Additionally, Executive candidates who have invested in themselves to hire a Search Consultant have devoted the time needed to be self-assessed. They are ready and committed to making a change. They have a strategic plan to be presented to a company that is well matched to benefit from the talents, skills, and abilities that they bring. These Executives complete a comprehensive weighted compensation worksheet which is shared with enterprises as part of the submittal for consideration. All the elements that they are seeking will be provided to you upfront.
WHY DO EXECUTIVES HIRE A CAREER SEARCH COACH?
Finding a new role is time-consuming for a busy Executive. The last thing they have is the time it takes to find a new position.
They are not interested in working with a retained recruiter who’s conducting a search for the client company. Because executive recruiters are compensated by the employer, they are obligated to find multiple candidates for the role and won’t present someone to an enterprise unless they’ve been retained to do so. Therefore, the Executive is not in control of the process.
Another reason that Executives hire a career search coach is because their opportunities are not limited to a specific enterprise that the recruiter may or may not have an agency agreement with. This eliminates any disappointment for the Executive if a recruiter cannot get the enterprise to sign an agency fee.
Most Executives want to seek a new role confidentially and explore different organizations without disclosing who they are until there is mutual interest. As a seasoned Search Consultant, I have the resources and the experience to do that work for them, offering my executive clients choices.
Insight’s process is designed to help them get the job that they want without the barriers that exist if they work with an agency.
