So how do we do it?
WE START with a proprietary process called Accurate Search Accelerated Placement or ASAP™ for short. This thorough process goes way past a job description to identify what perfect looks like for each specific client. We also do an ASAP™ with candidates to understand what the perfect opportunity looks like for them. If the puzzle pieces match, our detailed vetting process goes into full swing. Historically, only 3-4% of candidates are submitted to our clients because of our stringent vetting.
WE LEVERAGE a massive influencer network of macro influencers (well known prominent CEOs, best selling authors, pro athletes, top military leaders and more) and micro influencers (well known people in a specific niche). Our experience has proven that these influencers can gain us access to almost anyone on Earth-even the most passive candidates.
WE REWARD collaboration with a fun incentive called SomewhereNew “Go SomewhereNew on SomethingNew”.
WE BELIEVE in true partnerships and found that the antiquated fee structure used by most recruiters is flawed and does not put recruiters and their clients in alignment. The old traditional percentage model (typically 25-30% of salary) is broken for two reasons.
1. The percentage is just a made up number based on old industry standards, aka the status quo.
2. If a company has to pay at the top of their range for the right candidate they also have to pay the recruiting firm more. This makes negotiations unclear as the recruiter has a vested interest in getting the highest salary.
WE BELIEVE in a logic based flat fee that is predicated off of the ease or difficulty of a search. The Accurate Search Accelerated Placement, ASAP™ answers determine the size of the candidate pool and the resources we need to deploy to give our client an exceptional experience.
Our Influencer Network
We find great talent using a unique approach. We first leverage a massive influencer network of macro influencers (Extremely well known prominent CEOs, best selling authors, pro athletes, Olympians, top military leaders and more) and micro influencers(extremely well known people in a specific niche ie. consultants, trainers, PE and VC partners and more). Our experience has proven that these influencers can gain us access to almost anyone on Earth-even the most passive candidates.
The network extends beyond the employee-employer relationship to influencers who promote the workplace cultural philosophies that SomethingNew believes in. We spread the word about open positions and serve as creation engines for content that continuously inspires the community of past and current clients. This evergrowing network is made up of company owners with whom SomethingNew has helped create talent strategies, people who have been placed in jobs, and influencers who have been featured in the StandingO! series of books.
