Employers Process

Search Process.

Every search is different. A bit of art and a touch of science. A combination of relationships, research, proactive outreach, patience and persistence that leads to a successful hire.

After taking the time to understand our client’s culture and specific job requirements, we create targeted, custom strategies for each search. This will likely include a Jobs Alert to our 30,000+ opt-in pool of communications talent about your role; a social media strategy that furthers exposure, and an overall campaign that gets you up close and personal with your unicorn.

6 Weeks to Hire

We focus on building partnerships with our clients. Baking in transparency and regular communication that leads to an efficient hiring process. With the right client/search firm partnership, the time from search initiation to hire should take no more than six weeks.

Critical steps to making this happen.

DAY 1

Sign Agreement

PRT has a straightforward agreement designed to minimize legal wrangling and get us hot on the trail of your unicorn.

DAY 2

Client Download

To get a complete picture of the company and its culture, as well as first hand insights for the role, we require a conversation with the hiring manager in addition to the internal recruiter.

DAY 3

Initiate Search

We get rolling by creating a custom search at the same time we’re leveraging our deep talent pool and social media outreach.

DAY 14

Submit Initial Candidates

Most searches take about two weeks to get through the process of identifying and vetting the initial round of candidates.

DAY 16

*Feedback/Calibration

This is the most critical aspect for ensuring the efficiency and success of any search. We need detailed feedback about the initial candidates to help us calibrate the search and come up with even more candidates.

DAY 28

Add’l Candidates

After refining the search with added client insights, we’re able to provide even better targeted candidates for review.

DAY 28-40

Interviews

Candidates go through initial and secondary level interviews (phone or in-person) with additional client feedback provided along the way.

DAY 40

Select Finalists

Most clients select 2-3 finalists for a final round of interviews.

DAY 44

Offer & Hire

The client decides on a finalist and an offer is made. If a reference check is required, the client can also decide whether to have PRT manage the process or conduct the reference check themselves.

Multi-Market Searches

For clients with openings across multiple markets, our national reach (plus Asia Pacific) allows us to jump in and seamlessly manage the entire process… eliminating the need to hire multiple search firms.

We’re also able to identify top talent willing to relocate, and quickly match them to your opportunity before they pop up on competitors’ radar.
