FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE LEVEL REQUIRED?
The Good Search is a next-gen retained search firm focuses on board and senior-executive recruitment. While leveling at client companies varies, the roles we focus on usually start at the Vice President level and are centered on Senior Vice President and C-Level roles. For clients that are not quite ready for retained search, our research division Intellerati focuses on executive level roles and offers companies the opportunity to save.
WHAT IS INVESTIGATIVE SEARCH?
Investigative executive recruiting reaches beyond traditional recruiting resources. Moreover, it develops competitive intelligence that makes executive search smarter. Traditional retained search claims that they know all the best candidates simply are not true. Dunbar’s number suggests there is a cognitive limit to the number of people one can know. Research is the execution engine of executive recruiting. Build a better engine and you’ve just built the ultimate recruiting machine.
HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE?
On average, The Good Search presents the candidate who is ultimately hired within the first month. Amazon took just two weeks to hire one of our C-level executives for a high-profile startup in HealthTech. What speeds time-to-hire are decisive executives who are clear on what they need in an executive, who can meet the compensation required, and who do not hesitate to move to offer to hire a top-performing candidate.
