Finding top employees for technical and executive positions has become difficult in today's marketplace. After experiencing only frustration in trying to find those key people on their own, most employers have turned to excutive search companies to help them find top talent. The cost of an executive search is only a small fraction of a profit that a super star can bring to his employer. When looking for an executive search firm, two factors are most important. The first is to find a company that has extensive experience in placing executive and technical professionals. The second criteria is to find a company that is local to your community. They will have local candidates and candidates already looking to move to the area. Companies outside your area will probably only have candidates from other parts of the country who will require difficult and expensive relocation costs. Contact your local executive search company for more information.
