Executive Search & Recruiting

The Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC) and BlueSteps is pleased to announce the acceptance of five retained executive search firms into AESC membership following extensive reference checks, a site visit, and vote by the AESC regional council.

The AESC welcomes:

We recently spoke with a search professional at an AESC member search firm about how search professionals use BlueSteps to locate candidates.
 
What is the typical process when conducting a search in terms of how you source your candidates?
 
We use BlueSteps when looking for both candidates from the USA and international markets. I often use it when I need to find great candidates quickly as it’s so easy to find senior executives there. 
 
What databases and resources do you use?

“We’re seeing a pickup of selective hiring in financial services in the second quarter after a slow start at the beginning of the year,” said Jeanne Branthover, Leader of Boyden’s Global Financial Services Practice and Managing Director at Boyden New York. “As firms complete their restructuring, companies are assessing everyone’s skill sets with the new structure and placing the right executives in the right jobs. This is going to create big opportunities for people with the skill sets needed to succeed in the new structure.”

We recently asked an executive recruiter from an AESC member search firm to explain the value of BlueSteps to our member firms and to describe how candidates like you are found through the database.
 
Clara Widdison: What is the typical process when conducting a search in terms of how you source your candidates?

Betsy Bruening: Once we identify all criteria for the search, we use our proprietary database, our sources and contacts, and network with people in similar roles or industries. We also conduct raw research using internet search and social media.
