How working with us works.

01 / 05
Create a search brief

You get your own Direct Hire Consultant—and together, you create a thorough search brief for the role.

02 / 05
Recruit and vet

Your Consultant finds the right talent—and vets them through video interviews, portfolio reviews, and skills assessments. They present the top candidates to you.

03 / 05
Interview candidates

You spend a dedicated session interviewing shortlisted candidates—then work with your Consultant to compare, contrast, and pick finalists.

04 / 05
Extend the offer and close

Having already pre-closed your chosen candidate on everything, including compensation, your Consultant extends the offer and gets the “yes” you're looking for.

05 / 05
Check-in post-hire

Your Consultant checks in with you and your new hire to make sure the fit is working for everyone.
