Candidates FAQs

CandidatesCONFIDENTIALITY: Any documents and information you provide to us will be kept confidentially on file and used for purposes of matching your credentials with current and potential opportunities in the industry you serve. We do not rent or sell candidate information to third parties.

FAMILY RELOCATION: Family relocation is often involved, and Jordan-Sitter Associates is accustomed to being a part of that process. Spouses and families play key roles in successful relocations. We often talk with spouses by phone and meet them during our candidate interview visit. Typically, we travel with hiring authority approval to the candidate's city to conduct an in-depth interview. We often visit the candidate's home or at a nice restaurant, to meet the spouse and gain a feel for their lifestyle – as it may impact the relocation. Our comprehensive position specification typically includes a "relocation section" for candidates and their family to learn about the local community and residential housing options. JSA understands how important is is to answer as many family questions as possible to help in making a career change decision.

ARRANGING FOR CLIENT – CANDIDATE MEETINGS: Once our client has selected a panel of finalist candidates (often 2 to 4), JSA coordinates schedules for confidential meetings. Normally, one or two finalists are invited back for a second meeting, to include an opportunity for spouses to see the area, and to have dinner with our client.

CONFIDENTIAL REFERENCE CHECKING: When finalist candidates are identified, JSA contacts individuals who are qualified to comment in-depth as references for the candidates. The credibility of these individuals is enhanced because frequently they are either friends in the business or industry contacts of ours developed over the last 35 years. Educational credentials are typically verified and secondary references are often checked.
