FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS &
it cost me as a company to use your service?
Yes, our service is a Contingency Search
Fee that is only charged to you as a placement fee if we are successful at finding a candidate that you actually hire.
I am a looking
for a Fresh Graduate and want to know if you can help me find such a person?
As a general
rule, companies only use us to bring experienced candidates on board who have two or more years of on the job experience.
However, when we are able to find a fresh graduate for you, there is no charge to you. We basically offer the service
at no charge to gain good will for the future.
If I already have contacted another recruiting company, can you
also represent us to candidates?
In some cases we are not the exclusive search agency and yes we usually
can work with a contingency basis in these multi search firm scenarios.
How much is a reasonable amount to expect
in salary increase when a candidate changes to a new company and position?
a salary increase of from 10-12% seems to be the norm. Additionally, the cost of living may be also factored in to any
final salary calculation. With consideration of the internal equity (current employees’ salaries) it may be necessary
to factor in this aspect as well. If a company is not careful, a newly hired person, at a salary that is too high, may
lead to current employees becoming unhappy and even leaving. In summary, the compensation issue can be delicate and
needs to be handled with care and consideration of all factors and all parties affected.
Will Quality Search ever send me a candidate
without his, or her, knowledge or permission?
No, we will not send you a
candidate without their prior approval. There is an exception where a candidate has given us permission to market him
or her by sending them to a host of potential Employers. If the company shows an interest we will then disclose
actual name and contact information.
If I see a candidate on your Available Professionals site whom I am interested in, which recruiter
should I contact?
You should go through the Quality Search Recruiter that is indicated
on the profile posting. You also may simply inquire directly to Quality Search and a recruiter will be assigned to you.
