Atlantic Partners provides a rigorous screening process with a high degree of pre-interview screening and vetting with each prospective consultant. This consists of an initial call that is a minimum of 30 minutes. At this time we develop a deep understanding of what the candidate has done in their career, what technical and business projects they have worked on, what they are looking for in a new opportunity and how we can help pair them with the appropriate Atlantic Partners client.
Once pre-qualified by the recruiter, the candidate is then reviewed by the senior recruiting director and must be approved by both him and the account manager as the final pre-qualifying step in the process before submission.
Our database of consulting candidates is ranked by skill set and domain expertise, and we restrict the database from unsuccessful candidates who are eliminated in every search. We provide a proprietary technical evaluation process to screen potential candidates. We only present candidates that have the required training, skills and level of experience.
Atlantic Partners employs an equally high level of emphasis on the “human factors component.” We believe that it is imperative that we identify only those professionals with the combination of skill and experience, as well as the communication, people and social skills necessary to succeed within the client environment. We strive to understand the specific needs of each hiring manager so that we can best help them reach their objectives. Each prospective consultant is given a comprehensive overview of the company, the hiring philosophy, the work environment and the expectations of the position to make sure that there are no surprises at the time of interview. This process is carried forward at each phase of the hiring process and by each member of the Atlantic Partners Account Team.
All contractors are debriefed following an assignment by both the Recruiter and the Account Manager. The debriefing includes what they liked about the assignment and what they didn’t like. These simple questions assist the Account Team in evaluating and further establishing a knowledge base of what each area of an account is comprised of from both a hard and soft skill perspective. Furthermore, it is used to determine how we can continue to more effectively place successful contractors within the group.
