One of the financial industry’s leading staffing agencies and business consultancies, ELITE Recruiting & Consulting focuses on best meeting the needs of its partner companies as well as its contractors and consultants. For the latter group, that means recruiting ambitious and experienced professionals and collaborating with them during the search process and their initial interview, as well as when they begin working in their new job.
The first meeting with potential employers serves as a critical period in the process for the firm’s contractors, and one that it well prepares its professionals for. During the initial interview, the company advises that its contractors relax, be themselves, get to know the company’s hiring manager, and allow the interviewer to learn about them and their accomplishments. Experience shows that ELITE Recruiting & Consulting achieves a better deal when it handles negotiations, so it discourages contractors from negotiating themselves. After the meeting, the agency will send thank you notes to the interviewer and work with the contractor to develop a list of follow-up questions.
