Six Steps to Client Success with Vector Talent
Thanks to our specialized recruiting teams, we bring unique, highly relevant expertise to our talent process.
Vector thoroughly interviews each candidate and experiences are thoroughly validated. Our detail-oriented and resourceful Talent Agents take pains to verify that the candidates’ experience, skills and career objectives meet the goals of our clients’ business environments. Because every candidate we send to a client is thoroughly briefed on the client opportunity, our candidate knows exactly what to expect, and what is expected, from Day One.

- Client Consideration
- Candidate Interview with Client
- Offer or Next Steps
Step 1: Phone Screening
After Vector identifies a potential candidate through our extensive research and evaluation process, we perform an initial phone screening to see if they are a good match for current opportunities or to pipeline for future ones.
Step 2: In-Person Interview
The next step is to bring the candidate in for a thorough in-person interview to make sure they are the best possible fit for either the identified position or for representation for future opportunities. The fit needs to be technical, experiential and cultural. If all aligns, we then package the candidate profile and submit for consideration. We obtain and conduct references to validate our findings.
Step 3: Client Consideration
Our Account Managers work diligently to understand clients’ culture and the experience, education, skills and competencies sought in every position supporting. In fact, we will not submit a candidate unless we know all there is to know about the role and feel comfortable with a best possible match from both the client and candidate perspectives.
Step 4: Candidate Interview with Client
We coordinate all details for both the client and candidate meeting. We are completely open and honest about expectations on each side to ensure a positive experience regardless of the outcome.
Step 5: Debriefs
When the interview is complete, we discuss the experience on both sides to gain information, interest levels and determine next steps.
Step 6: Offer or Next Steps
We work closely with clients to craft a winning offer and handle all negotiations on their behalf. Once a verbal commitment is ascertained from the candidate, we coordinate the formal, written communications and closely monitor counteroffer concerns and other potential issues to ensure a smooth first day for the selected candidate. In addition to our reference checks, we can conduct various background checks, upon request. Should the interview not result in an offer, we seek to gain as much information as to where the gaps are so we can better fill them as we continue the process. The more we know, the better service we can provide.

Integrity of the highest level, always.

Your time is valued
We do not believe in sending over 40 candidates who might work. We selectively provide you with candidates who have been thoroughly vetted, screened and available for hire, which is how we have maintained a 60 % hiring rate.
If you want to attract elite candidates, your staffing expert should know where to find them, and we do. Our team of staffing experts stay on top of industry trends, skills and top talent, to guide our clients as we tailor plans to fit their strategic placement needs.
Commitment to long-term success
Our goal is to become your long-term strategic resource partner and help your organization succeed. We want to work with you to win contracts and develop a long term pipeline of business, not just fill the positions you have open today.
Honesty at all times
We never promise more than what we can deliver. In the unlikely circumstance that we cannot identify a candidate who matches your criteria, you will be notified immediately. When we do identify a candidate, you can expect that his or her credentials will be presented to you accurately, without exaggerated claims.
You have the right to be listened to. Your needs and preferences guide our placement process. We want to find the perfect candidate for your organization not just someone who meets the requirements for the position, but an individual who aligns with your corporate culture and long-term goals.
We promise to respond to your concerns whenever they arise, day or night. We understand that your day doesn’t stop at 5pm, and neither does ours. We are available anytime you need us.
We ensure that our employees have the training they need to meet your needs. We will also work with your organization to provide any specific knowledge that you may not have but can benefit from.
