Position Assessment: We take the time to learn about your organization and the position you want to fill to ensure a successful placement. We find it imperative to become familiar with our clients methods of operation, organizational structure and culture.

Search: ARG believes in utilizing both traditional recruiting practices and a strong Internet presence. First we make hundreds of calls to our vast network of knowledgeable people in the correct area of specialization to obtain a top candidate list that otherwise would not be found using the internet followed by a thorough search using our state of the art online databases.

Step 5 -

Screening & Qualifying: The prospective candidate list is contacted and screened to determine their interest and level of qualification for the position. From the results of this initial screening, we submit only the most qualified candidates for an in-depth interview with the appropriate hiring authority.

Step 6 -

Reference Checking: After the initial in-depth interview with the appropriate hiring manager and upon candidate approval to take the next step, a thorough reference check should be conducted. We strongly suggest all client companies to conduct their own thorough reference check before hiring a candidate.

Step 7 -

Client Interviews: The hiring authority and other key employees meet with each final candidate to determine the level of qualification and fit with the organization. After all interviews we debrief both the company and the candidate, and provide immediate and value added feedback to the client.

Step 8 -

Conclusion: Once all final candidates have been interviewed and the top candidate has been identified, we assist in negotiating the final compensation package that meets your satisfaction. The compensation package covers salary, bonus, stock options, and other benefits required to attract highly qualified individuals.

Step 9 -

Follow-Up: We will conduct follow-ups to our client and the new employee in order to insure both parties are 100% satisfied with the placement. It's important we get our clients and candidates continual feedback on the job performance, job satisfaction and to find out if we have a successful match for both parties.

Step 10 -

Continued Service: We will continue to stay in touch with our client to measure their satisfaction and to make sure the candidate we initially presented continues to develop into a long term productive employee for many years.
