In an industry where there are a thousand and one search firms, choosing the right executive search partner for your startup might be a challenge. Considering many of these search firms don’t even have the expertise or qualifications to hire top talent, recruiting might pose an even bigger challenge as the wrong partnership might result in the loss of time, energy, resources, and even potential finalists. 

Consequently, having the know-how for the right firm tops the list of to-dos when searching for executives. Furthermore, in this “measure twice cut once” recruitment business, founders need to find alignment or “mutual truth” with partners concerning their goals and realities.
