What is an Executive's Agent ?

When companies' use an outside service to search for locating and recruiting key professional and management staff the service is called "Executive Search". The term "Executive's Agent" refers to the service provided to individuals that are seeking a new career position.

Executive's Agent services includes consulting of an individualized nature, research to identify prospective employers and direct representation to decision makers to match the client to a need in a targeted company.

The client that is currently employed receives the confidentiality required and a professional executive's agent working on his/her behalf while the client continues to perform their current responsibilities.

An unemployed client receives professional services that provide a faster and higher level of success.

The three steps of Focus, Communications and Contacts are implemented for each client. The job seeker must identify what his value in the job market is, and identify who needs him. This is "focus", the first step. Then, the next step is to communicate this to the "decision-makers" that have a need that is a match for the job seeker's value. The language used must reflect your compatibility with the targeted industries and companies. Therefore, the materials like letters, resumes or profiles must also demonstrate this compatibility. The third step is making the right contacts.

The "Executive's Agent", by making direct contacts to decision makers, can identify senior level staffing needs that have not been published, and a "third-party" referral of the job seeker can be accomplished in a professional environment.
