Successful Search Process
- Client understands AMR will pre-screen and evaluate Candidates and present Client with Candidates meeting Client’s specified skill requirements. (Our entire recruiting process is designed to preserve Client’s valuable time)
- Upon submission of a candidate’s resume and/or a verbal presentation of a candidate’s background, Client agrees to provide critical feedback to AMR by telephone, voice mail message, or email within 24 hours of receipt of resume. In this market it is critically important for the time between first contact of a qualified candidate and formal engagement to be compressed as much as possible.
- Once Client agrees to the “fit” of a candidate to the skill requirement, Client agrees to begin the requisite interview process within three (3) business days. Highly skilled and truly motivated candidates in the current marketplace will likely be presented with multiple opportunities from which to choose. It is vital they be interviewed as soon as possible. Candidates reject offers at least as often as clients reject candidates. Time is critical for all concerned.
- Client agrees to make every effort to schedule concurrent or sequential interviews with all relevant approving authorities back-to-back and on the same day. This practice ensures the candidate’s time is not wasted by having to return to the site on another day and offers the Client the chance to “take the candidate off the market” before another employer can act.
- Upon making the decision to hire an AMR candidate, Client agrees to make every effort to make an offer to the candidate immediately following the final interview, and to do so through the auspices of an authorized representative of AMR. Our skills in this delicate area are an integral part of what you pay us for.
- Client agrees any discussion regarding compensation structure or contract duration will first be held with an authorized member of AMR.
- Should Client’s position be filled internally, through another source, or should the urgency in filling said position change in any way, Client agrees to immediately notify AMR.
