Search Process

Employees are the most valuable asset to a company and provide the foundation for profitable growth.  Our clients have recognized the importance of employing top-talent but are aware of the challenges inherent in finding those individuals.  The Consultants at General Placement Service have developed a process that enables us to source, qualify and place these top-tier candidates with our clients.

Below is the process that we employ:

Research the company and position:

  • Learn the culture and style of the company
  • Understand their past, present and future practices
  • Interview hiring managers to clarify their preferences and expectations
  • Have an in-depth discussion of the position, why it is open and the qualifications and skills necessary to be successful

Develop a plan and begin sourcing:

  • Outline the assignment and discuss with all GPS Consultants and Researchers – our team approach
  • Identify and target candidates from industry competitors
  • Post job on GPS website and several national and industry-specific job boards
  • Search for candidates on our internal database – which contains information on over 30,000 insurance professionals
  • Utilize all social networking sources (LinkedIn, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc) to target and contact passive candidates
  • Contact and employ the resources of other Insurance Recruiting Agencies on a national basis – utilizing the National Insurance Recruiting Association (NIRA)


  • Conduct interviews and screens on candidates to determine their skill-sets and career preferences
  • Compile a list of the most qualified candidates
  • Present position details and company information for candidate to determine interest
  • Review documentation on interested candidates to include resume, reference letters, performance reviews, etc
  • Select most fitting candidates for presentation to client


  • Present pertinent information to client on each qualified candidate
  • Discuss qualifications and fitment to the company culture and job requirements
  • Obtain any additional information requested by client (reference checks, background verification, etc)


  • Coordinate availability and arrange interview (telephone, office, virtual, etc)
  • Obtain post-interview feedback from both candidate and client
  • Schedule follow-up interviews as necessary

Offer of Employment:

  • Discuss candidates expectations with client to prepare offer
  • Present verbal offer on behalf of client
  • Close candidate on the opportunity and obtain offer acceptance

Post Acceptance:

  • Mentor candidate through the resignation process to ensure a smooth transition

The above process is standard but can be adapted to fit the expectations and needs of our clients.  Please Contact a General Placement Service Consultant to further discuss your preferences.
