We Provide Onsite Testing Options

If you need to test multiple candidates, we can provide onsite testing options. This service is ideal if you have a lot of applicants that need to be screened quickly and efficiently. We will come to your location and administer the tests there, so you don’t have to worry about transporting your candidates or finding a space for them to take the test.

Onsite testing also allows for more flexibility with scheduling. This means that if you need to schedule tests at a particular time or day, it will be easier for us to accommodate those requests.

Another benefit of onsite testing is that it allows you to observe candidates during the test-taking process. With this option, we will work with you ahead of time so that we know what kinds of behaviors are important to watch out for during testing sessions.

We Ensure That All Applicants Meet Federal Requirements for Employment


The federal government requires that all applicants meet certain criteria prior to being offered a position. Many employers have found ways around these regulations, but we are committed to ensuring that every applicant meets federal requirements.


We ensure that all applicants meet federal requirements for employment by:

  • Completing thorough background checks. Our background check service includes criminal record checks, credit checks and motor vehicle records. We also verify other information such as education credentials and previous employment history through our extensive database of public records. We will not hire any applicant who has a criminal record or is currently facing legal charges.
  • Ensuring that each applicant meets citizenship requirements. Applicants must be U.S citizens or permanent residents in order to work in the United States on behalf of our clients—we do not accept employees who are not legally authorized to work in this country.
  • Staying up-to-date on all immigration laws and regulations so that we never place an ineligible employee in an open position with one of our clients

Why Outsource Executive Search?

Confidentiality when sourcing top executive talent is almost always non-negotiable. We act as the buffer between candidates, competitors and your company. 

While internal recruiters can be effective, the expanded experience of an extended team with decades of combined experience can be invaluable to your executive search team. 

The supply of the highest level executive talent is often obscured and more difficult to find. Our team helps provide scale and scope for finding the absolute best candidate.
