Higher Education Executive Search Analysis
All higher education search firms are not alike. The level of services that each are prepared to provide are often recognized within the first few minutes of any conversation. Quite often search firms will be order-takers and fail to ask clients about intangibles. Clients also have become accustomed to search firms that operate on the same level and don’t invest in the firms carrying out their critical operational strategies.
The majority of clients that seek out the services of a higher education search firm have not been able to find the level of talent from advertisements and networking or have been working with firms that are likely providing the same level of resources that are taking place internally. We ask our clients to make the initial time investment at point of engagement thus eliminated wasted resources down the line with sub-par candidates that don’t match up.
It’s extremely important to understand all of the intangibles before starting a search analysis. Often going well beyond what is found in any job description; our focus is to work on conveying our client’s message to attract a talent pool that is not within present reach. Our White Paper approach is an in-depth analysis on the particular position that we are going to conduct a search for. Working as a team, we provide a scheduled meeting format to ensure that consistent message is being conveyed through every step of the process.
