Step 2
Percentage Matches

Your search results will be displayed in a “Percentage to Match” format which can be beneficial in further isolating or broadening the prospective candidate field.

Step 3
Position Consultation

This is where the human element and DAK’s trained search professionals come into play. We are here to provide input and guidance around your coding choices, discuss search results with you, and most importantly to engage and vet through the prospective candidate field to deliver your core slate of DAKdirect finalists.

Step 4
Candidate Screening

Finalist candidates will be presented to you through your DAKdirect account portal, where you can save and access the information at your convenience. In addition, DAKdirect Search Consultants are always on hand to provide substantive information overlays concerning key candidate details.

Step 5
Candidate Processing

You have the choice of accessing finalist candidates on a direct basis, or utilizing DAK’s Concierge service to help set up phone interviews, in-person interviews, and provide two-way client/candidate feedback. In addition, a DAKdirect Search Consultant can assist with offer formulation, offer presentation and offer close. For Premium clients, DAKdirect will run a complimentary candidate background check as a condition of employment.
