Our Company

In business for more than a decade. The Good Search is retained executive search (The Good Search) and a recruiting research practices( Intellerati).We have served as a stratagic recruitment partner to some of the most powerful and successful corporations in technology, and media. Our next-gen approach and expert research enables us to consistently deliver candidates our clients never knew or dreamed existed, outperforming traditional search firms In other words, if research is, indeed, the execution engine of search, then we have a Ferrari under the hood.

Our Approach

We work hard and smart to find our clients the talent they need. (In fact, not finding the perfect candidate occasionally keeps us up at night.) So we expect the best from ourselves and each other.  To identify the best of the best candidates, we conduct a lot of phone and Internet research.  In fact, we find the work strangely meditative, like working to fill in the missing pieces in a gigantic data jigsaw puzzle as we map talent at companies, building org charts reporting-relationship-by-reporting-relationship. We never hesitate to picking up the phone and chat up people we don’t know. We do it to cultivate our sources, to gather referrals and insights, as well as surface top performers that other firms have missed.

We seek candidates with a strong passion — if not obsession — for the world of business and technology. We  also have a stated “goodness” ethos, so you have to care about the candidate, about the client, and about your team because you believe you can make a real difference. (No jerks allowed.) In fact, we actually believe we can help make the world a better place — one hire at a time.
