CLIENT QUALITIES

ASCENT Select is committed to serving a select group of clients who appreciate customized, collaborative, and discerning search services that efficiently capture the top 10-15% of professionals who align functionally and culturally with your specific needs.

We provide our clients with a competitive advantage generally unavailable through internal or electronic efforts. To qualify as one of our clients you possess:

  1. Demonstrated commitment to hiring the same caliber of talent we recruit. Professionals at the top of their game, who are well compensated, not looking for a new job, peer reviewed and buried in excellence are not attracted to organizations demonstrating mediocrity.
  2. Direct Contact. Weekly verbal communication with the hiring manager is essential for an efficient, timely completion of a search assignment. We are likely as busy as the hiring manager and will not unnecessarily consume the hiring managers time.
  3. Our clients are fully aligned. Only through mutual trust, collaboration, regular conversation, and integrity are we able to deliver exceptional results. “Steph Curry could not win without a teammate passing him the ball”.
