For Candidates

How to Work With Us

Sourcing Spring Leadership Solutions specializes in the search and placement of leaders in a wide range of industries and positions.   We are skilled in working with qualified individuals as they approach career transitions, and would love to meet and assist you.    A great first step is to share with us your current resume.   With this, we can keep our eyes open for opportunities that may fit your unique background.    Please take a look at the current set of search engagements that our team is currently prioritizing, and if you are interested in learning more, please contact us immediately.  Also, please consider others you know who may be qualified and interested in one of these great opportunities.

Sourcing Spring devotes its practice to providing world-class executive search services to its clients.  We focus on creating long-term value for our clients and their owners. We pride ourselves in our ability to identify the rare candidates to fit our client’s needs.  All of our services are conducted with adherence to the highest ethical and professional standards.

What We Do

Sourcing Spring works on behalf of client companies to search for and recruit highly qualified executives.  All fees related to the search are client paid.  Every search is based on a solid working relationship with our client.  This includes developing a thorough understanding of the position specification, organizational structure and company culture, as well as the client’s expectations of the new person in the position.  We then search for the best candidates utilizing our extensive network of industry contacts and referral sources and our vast central database of candidates.

Our job at this point is twofold:

  • To determine whether a person’s qualifications, interests and objectives are aligned with the opportunity; and
  • To brief the prospective candidate on the position requirements.

Only if we determine that there is candidate interest and that they possess the appropriate qualifications and attributes will we discuss the candidate’s credentials with the client.  Once a mutual interest is established between the client and a candidate, we become facilitators of the process.

Your Sourcing Spring search consultant will brief you thoroughly about the job, client company and the interview process.  The consultant will assist in negotiating all aspects of any employment offer and will help to identify and resolve and issues that may arise.  Counsel on cost of living and relocation issues can also be provided.

Your Career

Most of the people we approach are not actively in the job market.  Frequently, they are qualified executives in satisfactory situations interested only in having exceptional career opportunities brought to their attention for serious consideration.  If you are going to leverage your career to its maximum potential, you will probably make several appropriate and timely job changes over the course of your working life.  In order to do that most effectively, you must have a career strategy and give careful thought to how to achieve your goals.  You and your family should define your values with respect to your work and desired quality of life.  When we are aware of your qualifications, goals and values, we can approach you with those opportunities that are consistent with them.

In this era of corporate restructuring and downsizing, anyone can lose a good job with little notice.  Therefore, it is a good idea to establish an early relationship with CIG.  If you should unexpectedly find yourself in the job market, we will be ahead of the game by already knowing the kinds of opportunities that will be attractive to you

 How to Work with Us

Career development is a serious process.  If you use an opportunity that a Sourcing Spring Search Consultant has presented to you simply to “shop” or to try to establish your market value, you are doing yourself a disservice and wasting everyone’s time.  There are less risky and more cost-efficient ways to establish your worth.  In exploring a career opportunity with your Sourcing Spring Consultant, you should keep some important points in mind:

  • Be honest and share not only your career aspirations and values, but also any obstacles to consideration of an opportunity;
  • If you have concerns, tell us in a timely manner so that we can deal with them;
  • Provide a complete description of your work experience;
  • Promptly provide requested materials;
  • We know the client’s needs and culture, listen and respond to our counseling;
  • Provide us with solid professional references that know you and your work well; and
  • Be proactive; a call right after an interview, for instance, is an important part of success in the process.

You may rest assured that we will be sensitive to your personal and professional needs and goals.  Confidentiality will be maintained throughout the process.  Our ongoing relationships with our clients often provide us ongoing relationships with candidates we place.  Therefore, we want to win relationships for life with both our clients and the executives we place with them.  The quality and value of our service is what earns those relationships and adds value to our clients and executive’s placed with them.
