Intellerati BlogBest Practices in Executive Recruiting Research and Candidate Sourcing
Welcome to the Intellerati Blog. We are an executive search research and recruiting sourcing practice committed to fixing what is broken about recruiting. Recruiting your next top executive or technologist shouldn’t have to be that hard. And honestly, we know that it doesn’t have to be. All we need to do is make executive search smarter. Because smarter is better.
Smart Sourcing. Genius Recruiting.
Intellerati advocates for an information-rich, data-driven, mindful approach to executive recruiting. It is the right thing to do and it is time. Founded by an award-winning investigative reporter and TV journalist, we have witnessed the power of information and it is beautiful to behold. It holds the potential to transform recruiting as we know it.
We believe executive search models should be updated. We believe conflicts of interest should be banished from Recruiting Research Pricing. We believe in serving a trusted source of recruiting research and candidate sourcing information. So we share tips and best practices on our Recruiting Research Academy page and right here in our Recruiting Research Blog.
In other words, Intellerati is not a traditional executive search firm or recruiting research practice by design. So if you are seeking the same-old, same-old traditional firm, walk on by. That is not who we are. But if you’re seeking an innovative recruiting research practice, you’ve come to the right place. If you are seeking an executive search research practice brimming with fresh ideas and powerful, new ways of doing things — we’d enjoy beginning a conversation with you here. We invite your comments. We really do care what you think. While we are pretty serious recruiting research experts, we are interested to learn from you as you learn from us.
So pull up a chair. Check out a blog post or two. Then let us know what you think.
