Working with an Executive Search Firm

How can you best work with an executive search firm as a potential candidate?

Have you reached out to a search firm only to not receive a call back? Don’t be discouraged. Like nearly all retained executive search firms, Torch Group is engaged by the hiring company to find candidates who are optimally suited to fill identified leadership position, not to find jobs for candidates.

A candidate’s suitability for a role is considered based not only on experience and skills. More so, we determine whether a candidate is likely to be A PERFECT FIT™ for the hiring organization based on its culture, mission, values, management team, and leadership style. This requires that we start our search process looking at the industries and companies that align with each client’s specific needs. We can then identify professionals in those companies who have the appropriate background, experience, and competencies.

When you reach out to an executive search firm, there is little likelihood that they will be working on a position that is an immediate fit for you. Therefore, you may not hear from them in a timely manner.

If you are interested in being contacted regarding future assignments, please upload a current résumé.

Our search team frequently reviews our database to evaluate potential candidates. If you are a match for a current position, one of our search consultants will contact you to present that opportunity and schedule an in-depth interview. When you are selected as a potential candidate, you will experience a transparent interview and evaluation process.

Thank you for reaching out to Torch Group.
