Thank you Tom for your question. Executive search firms use several channels to search for candidates. And yes, the first is always the firm’s own database but second comes AESC’s popular BlueSteps where 9,000 professional headhunters, working in 350 different executive search firms around the world, have access. We also use the Internet which of course includes sites like LinkedIn and usig techniques like Boolean. Finally, we telephone companies in the same industry as our client i.e. competitors, suppliers and customers to talk to potential candidates.
