The Candidate Evaluation is a three part report which is prepared for each finalist candidate who is presented to the client. It is composed of:
The resume presented in the candidate evaluation is a different document from the two page summary of experience which candidates originally send out. We write this 3-4 page history of professional development after we have conducted 3-6 hours of interviews with the candidate, on the phone and in person. The resume contains details of the candidate's experience down to specific programs and projects. It is designed to provide the background information from which the client can conduct efficient, productive, in-depth interviews during their own evaluation process of the candidate.
Having completed, in-depth interviews with the candidate, we use the details learned of their experience to "interview" their references. Some references are those given by the candidate, others are developed independently. By referring to specific projects or programs in which the candidate was involved, mentioning specific interpersonal relationships, and generally displaying in-depth knowledge of the candidate's experience in a particular company, we quickly get by superficial expressions of support from the reference, and get frank appraisals of the candidate's abilities, personality, and potential for success.
