Few endeavors in life are more rewarding and exhilarating than having a group of extremely talented people all working toward a common goal.

Our team knows that feeling.  We know how uplifting bringing in top talent can be because we all have relevant experience in the fields for which we recruit, which is rare in the executive search industry. We don’t just talk the talk, we have walked the walk. We believe in the amazing search capabilities of high-tech tools, but we also know the true value of in-person interviewing.

That’s why we believe that our clients deserve more than just receiving a resume. We work with you to understand your company and department’s culture and long-term goals. The hallmark of our recruiting approach is in-person, one-on-one interviews with qualified candidates.  As a result, we focus on assisting you with building stronger, more cohesive teams and present you with the best candidates that complement your culture and long-term goals.

We invite you to discover talent that can make an impact to your organization.  Call or email us today. We’d like to get to know you, and we would like for you to get to know us.

Our services to our clients focus on:

  • Quality – We work with the highest caliber clients, candidates, and networks.
  • Commitment – We are committed to providing exceptional service and to your success.
  • Results – We use a collaborative process to ensure you find the right person for the job, company, and team.

See below for details on our process and how we partner with you every step of the way.

Step One: In-person meeting and company/industry research

AquantUs’ exceptional service starts with an in-person visit* to your offices to learn more about not only your open positions, but your company’s culture and personality as well. Our focus is on building cohesive teams and matching up a candidate’s skill set, experience, goals, values, and priorities with those of your company. We will also perform extensive research on your company and industry to supplement our current knowledge and to ensure that we understand not only the details of your needs, but how those needs fit into your overall strategy as well.

*When physical visits/interviews are not practical due to non-local or international needs, video-conferencing is available.

Step Two: Identifying, evaluating, and screening candidates
Once we understand the requirements of the position and the type of individual who meets those qualifications, we reach out to our extensive networks to identify the best candidates. We meet with all of our candidates in-person* and perform an in-depth screening on both technical and soft skills. We document the results of the screening and provide you with this summary for all candidates submitted for consideration.

*When physical visits/interviews are not practical due to non-local or international needs, video-conferencing is available.

Step Three: Presenting the best candidates for your consideration

Once AquantUs has thoroughly screened the candidates, we bring only the very best to you for your consideration. Each candidate’s resume is submitted with a summary assessment of his or her qualifications for the position, a summary of the results of our in-person screening, his/her salary expectations, and any additional information that you request or that we feel may be of interest to you.

Step Four: Interviews

We can assist with scheduling interviews, if desired. We follow-up with both you and the candidate after each round of interviews to ensure that no surprises arise. We pre-close the candidate on the position and expected salary through every stage of the process. Should any new information or concerns arise during these follow-ups, we will bring them to your attention immediately.

Step Five: Offer Negotiation

Should you choose to move forward with an offer to a candidate, we will use the information obtained during all of our pre-close conversations to ensure the negotiations go smoothly and that there are no surprises at the offer stage.

Step Six: Reference and Background Checks

We perform formal reference checks, a background investigation (at the level you request), a credit check (upon request), and any other investigation that you require. We stay in constant contact with you and the candidate from the time the offer is accepted through the first day of employment and beyond.

Step Seven: Follow up

We follow-up with you regularly once the offer has been accepted and continue to do so after the candidate’s start date to ensure that the candidate is performing to your expectations.
