For the past two decades, I have worked with companies, agencies and non-profits of all sizes. I can identify the right job-seeker for your position, but I need to know what you are looking for. Simply stating you need a PR, Marketing or Social Media Communications professional as of yesterday doesn’t help either of us. In addition to a job description, below are some questions I will ask you:
Salary range for the position.
Is there a target bonus?
Name & title of the person the position reports to and their background.
Will they manage anyone?
How many people in the department and how is the department structured?
Why is position open?
Brief summary of benefits.
How much overnight travel should the person expect?
Describe the company culture.
Why should a person, happy in their current position, come work for you?
What is the procedure to move the process forward?
Sometimes I’ll know the exact person for you off the top of my head. More likely, it will take some research. I’ll get right to work on the search. In this current economic client, figure a couple of weeks to get you on-target, motivated candidates. So the quicker we start the search, the better. Timely feedback is the key to know if I’m headed in the right direction. We know scheduling can be difficult and everybody is busier than ever these days. I’ll be there to help you every step of the way to move the process along.
