We respect your time-we know that time is money!

Your time should never be wasted interviewing candidates who are not an ideal match for your company. JDI consultants make sure to address the intangibles that are involved when hiring a new employee. From experience, we know about the less obvious details that must be addressed, such as, benefits, travel time, advancement opportunities, cultural fit, personality, relocation, etc. We have an in-depth interview with each candidate we present– learning as much as possible about their professional background, personality, education, and training. We pry into their management metric accomplishments and their leadership competencies.

Our consultants are not afraid to ask the “hard” questions. Knowledge is power! We believe it is crucial to know as much about a candidate as possible. Knowing all the intimate details about a candidate ensures that you are presented with the highest qualified candidates. We focus on what the candidate truly wants from this change, and we will address any red flag areas before they are presented to you. We believe that the extra time spent with each candidate is crucial for you, as well as the candidate.

Why Choose JDI?arrow-link

Our consultants not only have the networking experience to attract these candidates, but we are also experts on how to “market” your position to candidates. In addition, we have an extensive candidate database that we have developed during our years in the industry. We execute each search with a mix of market research, database analysis and cold-call sourcing. This ensures a current, relevant view of the market from which to choose the best candidates.

At JDI, we are servant leaders in everything we do. What does this mean? It means that whether in our company, with our clients, with our candidates or in our community; we believe that we are commissioned to do more than serve ourselves. All too often, we see companies that are self-serving, and the unfortunate result is companies hiring the wrong candidate, candidates accepting the wrong job, and executive search firms garnering a poor reputation.
