Date: 6 August 2019 Our CEO Jason Starr gives us an interesting insight into how executive search firms find candidates. Certainly worth a read! "Junior positions are typically filled by active job applicants. For those roles, candidates searching for opportunities via job boards are the norm. For the senior level executive, however, life is different. The employer seeking to fill an executive job generally wants to find the very best candidate – and as a result wishes to work from the largest candidate pool possible. Limiting the pool to candidates who are 'actively seeking' jobs is not going to maximize that pool – and so a search firm is retained."
