down to several highly qualified individuals. Often, deciding on a lead
candidate is not easy. Well advise you on candidate strengths

likely wont refuse.

We discuss with the lead candidate key elements of the offer, looking
for red flags, negotiating differences and receiving a verbal commitment
that the candidate will accept the offer. Only then do we present a
formal offer, helping ensure the successful completion of your search.

candidate through resignation and the likely counter-offer. We then
follow up on all transition details, including relocation, to ensure
a flawless transition to your organization. We periodically follow up
with both you and your new employee to make sure the new relationship
is off to a great start.
