Although APA is a contingency search firm, we pride ourselves on providing the type of dedicated, individualized service often perceived with retained search firms with much less risk to your company. An intense focus on analyzing the client's needs and the required candidate skills at the beginning of the search, while continuing to refine requirements during the interview process, leads to our very high degree of success. We start by researching your company's products, develop an understanding of the underlying application and its ramifications to your position and match this with candidates who can solve your complex problems. This involves competitive analyses, research and execution of the search with a relentless approach. We are dedicated to your total satisfaction and can perform at a level of precision unheard of in the DFW recruiting scene. Our firm is also equipped to handle contract, contract to hire and an occasional retained search for key executive positions.
Our clients range from small and mid-size firms serving niche markets to large privately owned and Fortune 500 companies. Because of our core concentrated involvement with the DFW technology marketplace, we can quickly assess the client's needs and find the right local candidate in the shortest possible time. If necessary, we widen the geographic search area to find the right candidate on a nationwide search basis. If an exceptionally qualified local candidate exists, we can identify and contact that individual with almost 100% accuracy. Many clients outside of the DFW area choose to use our services to tap the local talent pool where some of the top design engineers in the nation are located. Our commitment to you is to find the most qualified candidate for your position, not the most actively seeking candidate.
Our database of candidates and networking base of professionals is comprehensive. We seek professionals with superior skills who take their careers seriously and attempt to develop relationships that last for years (passive candidates). In today's market place, candidates are career-savvy and align themselves with expert recruiters to conduct passive searches. They consider us to be important career counselors and trust our advice. Generally, each candidate possesses motivating factors that require him or her to maintain open options for better career opportunities. Our recruiters are expert at identifying these subtle factors and act upon them when necessary on your behalf. This coupled with our strong relationships; critical timing factors and your specific high quality requisitions represent a recipe for completing the most challenging search assignment that could never be filled otherwise.
Representing your company to the candidate is tantamount in the recruiting process. Persuading the most qualified candidates to seriously examine an opportunity with a new company is often the most difficult part of the recruitment cycle. This requires thorough understanding of industry, company trends and well-developed relationships. Additionally, this approach requires the highest level of integrity and can only be successfully executed by a recruiter who understands dozens of key factors that influence employment decisions. Our firm has the years of experience and the knowledge to assist your company like no other firm. – less–ZoomInfo
