Reading Between the Lines of a Resume

Robert PeckSenior Principal, 20/20 Foresight

20/20 Foresight Executive Search is a premier retained executive search firm that specializes in the Real Estate and Financial Services industries. Ranked #15 on Forbes Top 250 “America’s Best Executive Recruiting Firms”, we are confident that our highly experienced recruiters can connect you with only the best candidates to fit your company’s unique needs.

Unlike other executive search firms, our team of recruiters have years of experience working in their respective fields. This invaluable familiarity with the industry allows our recruiters to “read between the lines” of a candidate’s resume. In other words, our recruiters can accurately determine which candidates have the proper experience and skill set to meet the specific requirement of the job--much more so than automated screening processes.

More importantly, our extensive vetting process can provide more upfront details about a candidate than a typical initial screening call. The open communication we build with candidates allows them to be more honest about discussing sensitive topics such as reasons for leaving their last role, desired compensation, or potential hiring issues. This way, we can address these issues early on in the process and avoid wasting your time with someone who is not a fit for your organization. Further, we verify a candidate’s background and all the information they provide us before we connect them with a member of your team. We pride ourselves in selecting the best in the industry, and you can rest assured that your team is only reviewing the most qualified.

As part of our vetting process, we developed metrics such as aptitude and personality tests to objectively determine if a candidate has the knowledge and abilities to succeed in the role. We also recognize that cultural and organizational fit is just as important in a successful hire. Our candidate evaluation process is designed to present our clients with several qualified candidates so that you may choose one that is most compatible with your team.

The rigorous selection and vetting process our candidates undergo is a large part of the success we have maintained for over 20 years. Since 1994, we have completed over 2,000 searches, 80% of which were completed in less than 100 days. We have a success rate of 95%, unheard of in the industry, which is backed by a two-year placement guarantee for C-level executives. Very rarely do recruiters have experience in executive search in addition to experience in their targeted fields. That is what makes our recruiters so essential to our success--they provide unbeatable expertise, which is supplemented by our extensive selection and vetting process.
