CANDIDATE BILL OF RIGHTS
Vector Talent Resources raises the bar on staffing by developing meaningful relationships and becoming a true partner with each of our candidates.

Quality relationships are a cornerstone of Vector. We take a 360-degree look at every relationship to understand exactly what the relationship needs to be successful. We put ourselves in the shoes of everyone we work with to understand their perspectives and needs, and set them up for success.
We will not submit your resume to any position without your consent. You will ALWAYS know what company and position you are being submitted for and your references are not disclosed without your permission.

Six Steps to Find the Best Career with Vector Talent
- Phone Screening
- In-Person Interview
- Client Consideration
- Candidate Interview with Client
- Candidate Debrief
- Client Offer or Next Steps
Step 1: Phone Screening
After Vector identifies a potential candidate through our extensive candidate sourcing 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 career 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.
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.
