the exception of our "Entrepreneur in Residence" program,
we generally do not market candidates directly to companies
but work on behalf of companies to find candidates
that meet their exact requirements. However, there
are some candidates, whose track records are so accomplished,
that we will present them to a variety of VCs, CEOs,
and private equity firms to gage interest even though
an immediate opportunity is unknown. This is done on
an "exception basis" only.
Upon launching a new search, we first mine our internal
database for candidates. The search is based on key words in resumes
(e.g. software, sales, telecom, Oracle, etc.) that match the position
requirements. If we think you are a match for a specific position,
we will email you to ask permission to present you to the client.
Our next step in the process is to send out an email
through our network asking for referrals. This is a great way for us
to generate new candidates and also to make sure that we did not overlook
any candidates in our database. Our basic service for candidates is
free. In return, we only ask for referrals.
Each of our positions has interview questions developed
specifically for that position. We place executives primarily into
positions for sales, marketing, business development, finance, operations,
and technology. We only do C-Level, VP, and Director positions at fast
growth tech companies.
Resumes that highlight prior company information (even
for a former Fortune 500 employer) always get a better response. Just
a line or two about annual sales, number of employees, elevator pitch,
etc. for each employer can make a big difference in your ability to
be recognized as a potential candidate when we run a database search
for key words on a resume. Also, it is always helpful to have approximately
3-6 specific accomplishments listed for the first three positions listed
on the resume (accomplishments that include specific numbers, dates,
names of clients, etc. always get more attention). We recommend that
you indicate what the company's revenues were when you started compared
to when you left.
