Selection & search

Why we do it?

Answer:

  • In short to work with humans is our passion;
  • We simply were not satisfied with how the candidates were handled;
  • We did not feel the right answers was asked, and that there was not enough dialogue with the candidate about the answers.;
  • We did not see the right quality in the references checks made; if they were made;
  • The recruiters we met in 1984 did not know enough about the job functions, the tasks, the success criteria and this was why we are decided to make a difference.

Perhaps 90’s rebel, but we also helped move the quality and value, and we are pleased with this today. Pleased because we took the selection process seriously and lifted the level.

Who we are

Answer:

  • Experienced headhunters, specialized and well-networked in their respective areas of expertise, with the right related background, and a matching theoretical ballast who can effectively locate, screen and deliver candidates to fit individual wishes of client needs in a timely fashion.
  • Many will tell you we are different, 4selection does not follow the traditional track of the selection & search industry. We evaluate and renew our work models every year, the development in the world go faster and faster, and we simply need to be on the top of the business.
  • We are proud of the many years of experience our Advisors have, typically from Human Resources Mangement like most of the team is educated as a psychologist, and this is not normal in the recruitment and search world.
