Frequently Asked Questions

Let’s start by setting your expectations - Developing and maintaining candidate relationships is very important to us. We feel that a big part of establishing that relationship is setting your expectations up front. With that in mind, we hope the following information is helpful:

The most effective first step as a new candidate is to apply through this website to the Pro Search recruiter that specializes in your area of expertise, either by applying for a job posting that is of interest or simply registering.   Either way, our recruiting team is notified of your application.  Our on-line application gives you the ability to submit your resume and other important information directly into our exclusive database. You can update your resume and other information at any time in the future, ensuring that we have the most up to date information about you – during your current job search and throughout your career. Your application is entirely key word searchable (including resumes and cover letters) and confidential and our database is the first place we go every time a new search assignment comes into Pro Search.

What happens once I sign up?

Once you’ve signed up, our specialized recruiters carefully evaluate your resume against all current recruiting assignments (and temporary/contract jobs, if appropriate) and we will contact you to invite you in for an extensive interview if your professional background fits the requirements of any of these assignments. If there isn’t a current match, we will contact you when/if an appropriate career opportunity does become available in the future, and invite you in for an interview at that time.

I applied for a job that I know I am qualified for. Why didn’t I get selected for an interview?

Our client companies hire us to cast a wide net and identify all qualified candidates, both active and passive job seekers, in the market. In response to our postings and our networking and recruiting efforts, we often have a large number of worthy candidates. This creates a comparative process that allows us to look for those few candidates that are a close fit to our client’s business need. We regret that means sometimes not all job seekers who feel qualified make it through the screening process that results in a face to face interview.
