ROI International is primarily an executive retained search
firm specializing in officer and chief officer level positions. We utilize a
four step interviewing process prior to presenting our short list of candidates
for presentation to our clients.
first candidate interview is conducted by our research staff and is geared
to evaluate attitudes and motivations about their work environment. We want to make sure we understand if a
candidate has the "right stuff" to succeed at a client company. We also want to understand the candidate
needs so that we can motivate them to pursue the role if they are
qualified. Our research staff then
presents to the search manager the candidates who appear to have the right
mix of credentials, motivation, and interest in the search position.
second interview is conducted by the person managing the search to
evaluate the match between key hiring factors and the candidate's
capabilities. This is an in-depth
exploration of specific accomplishments a qualified candidate needs to
demonstrate. The strongest
candidates are able to clearly articulate concrete goals, quantifiable
results, and a mastery of the details underlying each success.
third candidate interview is geared toward helping the candidate fully
understand the organization and the position they are interviewing
for. An honest and thorough
discussion of the position and the company helps reduce mismatched
expectations between the company and the candidate.
fourth candidate interview is done by video conference and allows us to
use a behaviorally-based interviewing style and capture the discussion on
videotape. The tape is delivered with our recommendation of candidates as
an alternative to the traditional telephone interview.
measure our process success by the percentage of candidates we recommend
that are actually hired, and the turnover of candidates placed by us over
time. We can share our results and industry averages during a more formal
