Dear Reader,

My name is Shireen DuPreez, and I am the author of an exciting book, The Executive Search Process: A Step by Step Guide to Finding the Right Candidate. If you are responsible for finding or hiring staff, you likely have faced the same challenges and problems that I have during my career, especially my early career, as an executive search and recruitment professional. You know how demanding it can be finding exactly the right candidate for your open positions.

As a professional, and one mentored and tutored by some of the leading professionals in the field, I learned that success in executive search follows a proven process. What if you could significantly improve your chances of recruiting the best possible applicant for those keys jobs? That is exactly what my book can do for you.

I am an experienced Executive Search Consultant and have recruited for organizations of all sizes from start-ups to American Fortune 500 companies. I learned the business from the ground up, first working as a candidate developer for an established executive search firm in the San Francisco Bay Area. Following that I worked as a Senior Consultant for a boutique talent acquisition company in Perth, Australia. My executive search experience is across functional lines from contributor roles right up to Vice President level positions. When I became an independent consultant, I updated my skills and while doing so discovered the lack of sound advice for search professionals. I decided that I had the knowledge, experience, desire, and research skills to fill that void. The Executive Search Process is the result.

As someone hiring staff, you can go through months and months of not finding suitable candidates. You search and search and have little to show for it. You can wander aimlessly around the web looking for candidates and places to find them, spending hour upon hour doing so. You may post an ad on a job site and pray you get suitable applicants responding. But you never seem to find just the right person. A search takes time. Now, with my book, you will have a guide and tool based on the experience and expertise of those who have succeeded in the business and one that will take you step by step to hiring success.

You won’t have to settle for the pool of candidates who are looking and applying for every job that they believe is “close enough”. You’ll be able to short cut the process, conduct an executive search yourself, locate top performers for critical roles, and learn the best search practices quickly.

Everything you need to know to start an executive search immediately is included in The Executive Search Process.
