The professional team at Miles knows there’s an art to finding highly trained and effective professionals. Every business in every industry has its own challenges and unique situational needs. Each position has nuances and quirks that may not be apparent at first, but could have enormous consequences to a potential candidate.
That’s why we start at the beginning, helping define the parameters of the position, identifying all the necessary — and often overlooked — criteria that might affect the position. This extra depth provides a clear framework for candidates to truly understand the nature of the position and helps us determine whether they possess all the necessary characteristics to fulfill it successfully.
We access our own national database as well as tapping into a global network. We’re also sensitive to the logistics and staging of confidential hires, off-site interviews and sourcing. When unexpected transitions occur, we can step in to provide interim management staff.
