An overview of Pro Interlink Resources products.
Pro Interlink Resources covers the following Services:
- Retained Search
This is our favored method of approach. It is dedicated to providing candidates, based on the strict search criteria that our client sets. We take into account not only core skills required, but also corporate culture, location, qualification, personality, types of organization and industrial skills / experience.
The major source of candidates for this type of service is Direct Search (headhunting). The benefits:
- Individuals are specifically targeted in accordance to our clients’ criteria.
- Candidates on short-list are pre-selected, briefed on the role, thus avoiding “shoppers” and non-motivated candidates.
- Ability to approach candidates who perhaps have not considered moving. Creation of a professional perception of our clients on the market.
Confidentiality of the search.
Our Terms of Business for search assignments always include prepayment (Retainer), payable prior to our starting the search activities, and Placement Fee, payable to us on the first day of the successful candidate’s starting his/her employment with our client. Depending on each particular assignment the Placement Fee may also be split into two parts: candidate Shortlist Fee (payable after the result of the search has been provided to the client) and the Placement Fee itself.
Depending on each particular assignment, the techniques of Direct Search may be combined with Advertised Selection, which will be agreed upon between us and the client, prior to executing the search.
The Retained Search usually takes between three and five weeks until the presentation of the shortlist, but will in any case continue until the suitable candidate is found and placed with our client.
- Exclusive Advertised & Database Selection
A widely used option where the position is not confidential and where the client would like to create a perception of their corporation and product. It promotes a wide response from various candidates and can cover large geographic areas quickly.
Whereas the client will be charged for advertising costs, no Retainer is charged on the condition that we are the sole agency working this particular assignment (exclusivity clause).
Combined with advertised selection, we match our client’s criteria with the details of potential candidates currently existing on our Candidate Database.
- Advertised Selection
Pro Interlink Resources would provide the design and copy of the advertising. Our relations with the various media in the PRC would secure a discount passed on to the client, and also the best possible space.
Our vast experience and track record provides us with the ability to work quickly with large responses and to pre-select.
- well written advertisements will generate only those individuals motivated to move with the necessary skills.
- pre-selection from the “long-list” will ensure maximizing time on short-listed candidates.
- Database Selection
A method used internationally by recruitment organizations to deliver a candidate’s Curriculum Vitae to interested clients. Pro Interlink Resources uses the database method on a reactive basis. Since we develop strong relationships with our client and are aware of their needs on a constant basis, the Database Selection is used to provide candidates who meet those constant needs.
More importantly, the Database Selection provides our clients with the ability to engage in competitor analysis on a variety of issues: Compensation and Benefits. Salary levels and trends in Human Resources.
- constant pool of information on various sectors, levels of individuals
- a permanent “look-out” for non-urgent candidates that a client has a registered interest in
- ability to benchmark internal and external candidates for the client Depending on each particular assignment, Exclusive Advertised Selection and/or Database Selection takes from one to two weeks until the shortlist presentation.
- Non-exclusive Database Selection
This method is employed in cases when the client wishes only to use our extensive candidate Database in order to see whether there are any possible matches for its candidate criteria.
In this case, no retainer is charged and the client pays our full Placement Fee upon the first day of the candidate’s employment with the client.
It usually takes three full days to search our database.
As with the previous types of our service, Pro Interlink Resources will personally interview the candidates before presenting them to the client.
