Finding Talented People Who Make an Impact

Organizations that excel in today’s global marketplace deliver a consistently superior product or service, set the standards which competitors follow and see most clearly what lies ahead. Likewise, organizations need the kind of leaders who can make things happen, show the way to others and visualize change. Without them, no amount of technological improvement or marketing innovation can create a sustainable marketplace advantage.

Simply put, people make a difference. They may be sitting in the executive tower or in the field sales environment, but you know who they are. And if they leave, or get promoted to further their individual careers, you know how crucial it is to find the very best talent, and in the shortest time possible. Such circumstances are where PharmaOne Search can help in the process of finding that top level talent.

Commitment to “Value – Added” for Our Clients

PharmaOne Search has a mission: to help clients find highly qualified people for critical job openings at the VP, senior director, middle management, and analyst/senior analyst levels. We have succeeded year after year, and no search assignment is too complex or challenging for us to undertake. We will always convey excellence. We strive to provide superior value to clients by combining custom search capability with exceptional industry knowledge, professionalism, honesty, and integrity.

Clients turn to PharmaOne Search to obtain the urgency, commitment and expertise required to find the best possible people in the shortest period of time, often on a highly confidential basis.

“Target Search” Approach

Using a unique and an advanced process called Target Search, PharmaOne Search consultants guide each assignment from the initial documentation of client needs through the identification, presentation and recommendation-to-hire of the right individual(s). Thanks to this process, we can match occupational skills to job requirements, past experience to future projects and personal style to corporate culture.

Our Target Search process identifies highly qualified candidates through established relationships, competitive intelligence, and industry sources. We will present them in sufficient detail (summary “write-up”) to demonstrate their qualifications for the position opening. We provide interviewing suggestions (Top 25 Interview Questions Candidates Will Most Likely Face), if desired, and will counsel with you on what we believe will be an acceptable offer to the final candidate. In many cases, it is desirable for PharmaOne Search to extend the offer, which allows us to act as a third party to resolve any last-minute issues that may arise, preventing the final candidate from falling out of the initial offer stage.

A Partnership and a “Win-Win” Relationship

PharmaOne Search serves as your business partner in the successful completion of a search. You provide the in-depth knowledge of your organization, its corporate culture and the specific requirements of the open position. We provide in-depth recruiting expertise, coupled with the industry and occupational know-how to solve your problem efficiently and cost-effectively.

We act in strictest confidence on your behalf and, at all times, with the utmost of honesty and integrity. Because we are in business for the long haul and seek long-lasting relationships with our clients, we never practice “hit and run” recruiting. Instead, we have the patience and resources to do the job right the first time – assignment after assignment.

Our Full Service to the Best Outcome for Candidate and Client

PharmaOne Search is a full service, executive search firm that can provide consultative staff, industry research and intelligence, compensation analysis, face-to-face interviewing, travel coordination and candidate reference checking for clients.

We also can provide relocation assistance to prospective employees through a number of our real estate affiliates and contacts, as well as assist in contacting community organizations to make the move to a new area as comfortable as possible.
