At A Glance
The CEO needed an executive assistant. Despite having already interviewed a number of candidates, he hadn’t yet found someone with the proactive and detail-oriented work style that his busy schedule required.
A contingency search, kicked off with a thorough intake to understand the position requirements and followed by advanced social sourcing to find individuals who matched the profile.
“Because the position required working closely with the CEO, our search was as much about finding the right work style as it was about qualifications. We cast a wide net, and then screened potential candidates heavily.”
Angela Bortolussi, Earls project recruiter, Recruiting Social
Sourced and screened 93 potential candidates
Submitted the top 6 candidates for interview, fewer than 7% of candidates assessed
Placed the 1 hire needed
“Angela from Recruiting Social made the experience enjoyable and not feel like it was a business transaction.”
Kiran Jagpal, Executive Assistant to the CEO, Earls Kitchen + Bar
