What is Executive Search ?
‘Executive Search’ refers to the process of searching for ideal individuals for senior-level positions. They are usually processed by recruitment specialists who specialize in recruiting for these kinds of positions.
Similarly, instead of advertising for the open position, the candidates are shortlisted and approached directly by the recruiters. They might even conduct a personal interview before the company meets the candidate.
The other distinguishing factor of an executive search is that it is used secretly by most companies as they do not wish the layman to realize that the company is running without a senior board member. An executive search might also be conducted in the case of technical positions, where the pool of candidates are less in number.
