Client Methodology
  The Professional Alternative’s operating company’s (Accounting Options and HR Alternatives) team takes pride in our ability to recruit and evaluate talented individuals that fulfill the needs of our clients.

Each Customer relationship is a partnership
Our practice of strategic business partnering enables us to understand your human capital needs from the start. We take he time to learn about your business. Your Account Representative is your single point of contact and will work with you from job description, through candidate screening, interviewing and referencing to insure the proper fit is made.

Customer Understanding
  Our focus is to work closely with your management team to gain accurate and thorough knowledge of each department where the candidate will work; as well as understand the expectations of the hiring manager, giving us the ability to anticipate your requirements and meet your expectations. This focus, along with our extensive candidate database and network, which is continuously expanded through active recruiting, referrals and professional associations supports our ability to pro-actively deliver quality candidates for urgent and critical needs.

Extensive Hiring Process
  We realize that hiring options are very important and often make the difference in who is selected as a staffing service provider. Our goal is to provide our clients with the flexibility to support the best employment option for them. Whatever the need…. we can support it.

Our hiring process is extensive and starts with a detailed job description, an assessment of the workplace, demographics and meeting key personnel for candidate skill requirements, company culture, and client management style.

We conduct research, to determine and analyze all optimum sources for qualified candidates. Following the research, we contact prospective candidates, and conduct pre-screening. During the pre-screening process, we probe deeply to find information not provided on the resume including technical proficiencies, communication style, and areas of interest. A Professional Alternatives recruiter meets personally with every candidate submitted to a client (subject to geographic constraints).

Then we conduct in depth reference checks and background verifications - conversations with knowledgeable associates (former managers, peers and subordinates), degree/professional certification verifications, etc. We believe that the time invested in getting to know our candidates is critical to identify top talent for our clients.

We will coordinate all telephone and face-to-face interviews, as well as debrief both parties. Our goal is to act as an intermediary to create a win-win situation for both parties.

Offers and negotiations will be handled by your Professional Alternatives representative to ensure that you secure the candidate of choice.

Hiring Options
  Our integrated suite of services offers flexible hiring options, which include: direct hire placement, contract-to-hire, and contract/consulting. We can leverage these competencies in any combination you require to insure that your business needs are met with a dedication to efficiency, integrity, professionalism and high quality.

Direct Hire
A core member of your team. Additions to the staff to complement your existing team on a long-term basis. We utilize our placement and search techniques to locate exceptional talent.

Designed to reduce the uncertainty associated with hiring, this option insures the candidate’s ability and fit. The intent to hire is established, while allowing the candidate and the company time to make sure the match has long-term potential.
