We guarantee you haven’t experienced the depth of our inquiries into position scope, departmental objectives and corporate culture. The easiest part of search is matching technical skills; the hardest part is matching a candidate’s soft skills to the flavors in your hallway and an environment that frees a candidate’s creativity. This is our strength.
No Job Boards, Tweets, or LinkedIn postings.
We work old school. We have zero interest in finding out who’s looking. Our job is to find those who are buried in excellence and have their heads down in noticeable performance. Lighthouses candidates are selected based on professional vetting by their peers, not by their aggressive availability and personal advertisements. Be warned: when we present one, you will need to deviate from protocol and clear the calendar.
We will not expose you to surprise-filled, tire kicking candidates. Typical headhunters pitch jobs before they ever know a candidate’s status or interest. It’s inauthentic and a waste of your time.
Before we ever discuss a specific opportunity, candidates have already given us their full, purist views on what a Utopian situation is for them. We don’t sell jobs, we are skillful matchmakers. That comes from hearing the truth before anything else. Bored opportunists never make it past us. If we cannot find a legitimate career wound that will motivate a top 15% candidate to move, they are not eligible for our representation.
Important candidates require preparation. They are as bright as you, can read a “wing it” interview instantly and could misjudge your company’s management culture if the interviewer is not prepared.
We provide you a candidate assessment that will dwarf the typical resume and slanted reference checks you are accustomed to receiving from others. Our process includes prepping you for an interview that will give you such an in-depth look at the candidate. We will walk you through the entire process and will ensure that you are 100% confident and there are no surprises.
No games. No playing both sides. We work for you, not the candidate. If the candidate has any “holes”, you will know about them. If we do the reference check you will get both barrels in quotes material.
There is no negotiating. If all parties do their job correctly and if all sides have been pre-closed with hypothetical offers and hypothetical acceptances, transitions are smooth. If we feel an offer will not be accepted, it will not be extended, it’s as simple as that.
We believe in excellence and not mediocracy. Our work will last and bring stronger contributions and we will prove it on the first search.
