Our Obsession With Excellence
With our finger on the pulse of the recruiting industry, KDS Executive Search & Staffing partners with Human Resource, Hiring Managers and decision-makers at leading companies across the U.S. and internationally, and consults with them on the best headhunting and recruitment practices for their business.
We Invest More Time on Fewer Searches
Unlike most recruitment firms, we limit each recruiter’s desk to 4 searches or less at all times. Dedicating more recruiting time to fewer searches enables KDS to be more thoughtful, more thorough, more precise and more responsive on each search – resulting in more accurate, qualified candidates in less time.
We Deliver Fresh Talent (Never Fried)
Utilizing a combination of state-of-the-art technology and results-oriented recruiting practices, KDS employs strategic search tactics for a smooth and successful hiring process. We provide a thorough intake for every search and meticulously break down the specific skills required for the position to deliver results with speed and accuracy.
We never present job-board resumes; instead, we leverage our proprietary database technology so searches are specific and from a carefully selected pool of top-tier talent. As experts in the art of search and headhunting, we are highly proficient in identifying and building real relationships with candidates who are truly masters of their skills sets. We also continually invest and train in the latest cutting-edge tools and techniques that allow us to delve deep into industry-leading sites such as LinkedIn, StackOverflow, Dark Web, GitHub, Twitter and more, to gain direct access to candidates that other agencies can’t.
At KDS, we strictly maintain the highest standards in recruiting practices:
- Every candidate submittal must meet 90% or higher of the hard and soft skills our clients specify
- Submitted candidates must be willing to work within the salary range our clients specify
- Submitted candidates must be motivated by something other than money, as passion for the position ensures longevity and success for both the employer and candidate
