What We Do For You:   Our Client

1) Joseph Associates staff will learn about your company and the specific requirements of the position as well as the intangibles that make for a successful match.  This is accomplished through a careful review and discussion with your staff and may include one or more visits to your facility.

2) Joseph Associates staff will then prepare a detailed job description for your review and discussion.

3) Upon acceptance of the job description Joseph Associates staff will then begin the search for the appropriate candidate.  Typically we present one or two candidates that are close to or on target.  At this point we seek your feedback on how good a fit this candidate is, and depending upon that feedback, continue the process or revise it to reflect your input.

4) Once a successful candidate has been identified, we work with you to prepare a competitive offer, negotiate terms and bring the placement to a successful conclusion.

5) Once the candidate begins work, we will call or visit on a monthly basis for the first quarter of employment in order to assure the success of the placement.

This process has been developed and improved over time to best meet our client's and candidate's needs.
