Retained Search vs. Contingency Search Many of the firms working on a contingency basis take a volume only approach, bombarding you with candidates and farming the opening out to scores of other firms since it is a no-cost proposition for them to tier it out through several levels. The first layer will always be guaranteed a payoff if one of the reams of candidates get selected. This can be a messy process where multiple firms who received the co-broked order contact the same candidates. The biggest drawback to a contingency type search is that since firms stand a small chance of filling the opening with the common “lottery” approach, they will often add the contingency order to a pile of numerous other contingency orders, none of which receive the full, intensive focus they need.
Our Approach to Retained Search In a retained search, we will dedicate internal resources exclusively to filling your position. Focusing exclusively on your position creates opportunity cost for us. Your commitment to a retained search shows us a level of commitment on your part to actually fill the position, rather than just gathering resumes to test the waters.
When you retain us it is an exclusive listing, and one third of our fee is paid up front, before we begin the search. We will work full time on filling your position and will perform intensive market research in doing so. Upon presentation of the results of our market research, the next one third of our fee will become due. We will only collect the remaining one third of our fee if you select a candidate we have presented and that candidate accepts your offer.
We treat executive search as a rigorous, highly specialized management consulting technique. We use a unique, systematic, disciplined approach to source, screen and present the most qualified candidate.
We generally take the following steps during an executive search:
1. Situation Analysis
2. Pre-Engagement Discussions
3. Creation of Position Specifications
4. Intensive Market Research
5. Candidate Screening
6. Interview Process
7. Candidate Presentation
8. Reference /Background Checks
9. Negotiations & Offer
10. Culmination of Search
11. Post-Search Wrap-Up

For this reason, Advanced Technology is amenable to offering our services on an “engineering services” basis, a project basis, a fixed price basis or any other basis.
