Our Media Recruitment Approach

"We must all hang together or most assuredly we shall hang separately"   ~ Benjamin Franklin

Communication

The Media Executive search process is best accomplished as a team effort. Therefore, communication between us is critical to the ultimate success of the search. During the search process, we will contact you on a regular basis to keep you informed of our progress. Your thoughts, ideas, and feedback concerning the position may evolve as you begin to evaluate and interview candidates. Therefore, it is important that you provide us with any information that may affect the search as soon as possible.

Although we are working for you, we are still focused on treating all candidates with dignity and respect. It is critical that we communicate decisions clearly, promptly and accurately as we meet candidates. After all, only one candidate will be chosen, and we want to ensure that every person we have spoken to leaves the search process with a positive feeling about your company.

Understanding the Client’s Needs

We believe a diligent Media Executive search begins with a thorough understanding of our client's needs. When we approach media recruiting assignments, we find it necessary to go well beyond defining the specific skill set required. Working closely with you as our partner; we review the business and professional context of your situation and, together, develop a thoughtful description of the qualifications and background of the ideal candidate.

Developing an understanding of the culture is critical. We obtain this understanding by conducting interviews with you and with key people in the organization designated by you. By speaking to the people who will be the colleagues and superiors of the successful candidate, we will get an overall sense of what it takes to flourish within your organization.
