3. Screening and Selection

We conduct thorough screening and evaluation of candidates, curating a recommended list of at least 6 highly competitive candidates for the initial round of interviews. A CLEAR-facilitated interview panel of staff is invited to be involved at this stage. We then facilitate the final round of interviews. This allows many voices from your organization to be heard.

Active Listening

We firmly believe that success begins with empathy. This belief guides our practice of active listening, a cornerstone of our entire process—from engaging with your key stakeholders to conducting interviews with potential candidates.

Our proprietary network, including a substantial LinkedIn following, political connections, community involvement, and established relationships with major corporate affinity groups, guarantees that your position will receive visibility among engaged and diverse audiences.


Respect is at the forefront of our firm. From grasping the distinct needs of your organization to evaluating the unique qualifications and experiences of your candidates, our commitment to respect underscores every step, ensuring an optimal match.
