Screening & Shortlist

Within 48-72 hours after the discovery meeting, our advisors will present you with a shortlist of candidates to be screened using our extensive database, online resources and Advisory Group’s broad network.

Candidate Interview by Advisors

Our advisors will meet with shortlisted candidates to discuss the role directly with them, while carefully evaluating their experience, skill set, language proficiency, interest in the role and their “culture fit” with the client company. Our advisors will recommend screened candidates to the client company and will arrange for back-to-back candidate interviews in our office or at your office.

Interview Negotiation

Throughout the recruitment process, our advisors will provide feedback to both the client company and the candidates. If the client company decides to make an offer of employment to the candidate, our advisors will negotiate the conditions of employment between the candidate and the client such as annual compensation, working conditions, start date.


Once the hiring decision is finalized and an employment offer is signed, Advisory Group’s fee will be invoiced on the date the candidate signs the employment offer. Should the candidate leave the client company for personal reasons within a certain period of hiring, a free replacement will be provided.

Post-Hiring Aftercare Services

We take a long-term view. Following each successful introductions, our advisors maintain regular contact with client company and candidate to ensure that both parties are meeting each other’s expectations.

Before I began my job search, I was in contact with several staffing agencies. The Advisory Group showed the most proactive attitude, genuinely listened to my needs, and introduced me the most suitable positions. I want to especially thank Jennifer, Charles, and Yuriko for their dedicated assistance in finding a job that fits me well. I highly recommend them to anyone currently seeking employment.

Highly recommended especially for moms who have gaps in their careers. I had five-year gap in my career and got a manager position which was equivalent of my previous job title-wise thanks to the team. One of the very best agencies I’ve ever got help from.

in a moment i need a quick solution to find a new job, the company deliver exactly what I need.. When recruiter was not yet convinced of my capability, the company assisted the recruiter to clear their concern.. the company represented my self to negotiate compensation with the recruiter, so that I was able to get best possible deal for that role. Based on the xperiences I think they deserve 5 stars from me. So thank you.
