Frequently asked questions about executive search in Nuremberg

How do I react correctly when the headhunter calls?

First of all: don’t be scared! Good recruiters are not interested in putting you in an uncomfortable situation. So the initial interview will usually be very short: an introduction, description of the position, and a question about whether you are available for further interviews at a convenient time. Use the interview to gather important information for your professional situation and who knows: maybe your dream job is waiting for you.

How long do headhunters need to fill a position?

From the kick-off meeting to the presentation of the candidates, you can expect 6-8 weeks. After that, process times can vary significantly due to the availability of candidates as well as internal interview partners and, of course, the number of interviews scheduled. It is important to keep this phase as short as possible to avoid candidates dropping out. Depending on the candidates’ notice period, between one and nine additional months can pass before the first working day.

Are there Executive Search Consultants for electrical engineering?

The competence center electrical engineering at DELTACON Nürnberg GmbH specializes in filling senior technical and management positions. Thanks to our own management experience in electrical engineering, automation technology and electronics, we are able to identify and address the best candidates quickly and precisely, naturally also via our own network. When filling positions in tight candidate markets, addressing candidates at eye level is particularly decisive. Highly sought-after applicants will only respond if they receive precise and interesting information about the position. Industry knowledge on the part of the recruiter is also absolutely essential in the first telephone call; this is the only way to establish a more personal relationship with the candidate. The candidate perceives this as appreciation and will be more likely to decide to take the next steps in the application process.

Why does a headhunter ask about salary?

An important criterion in the selection of applicants is the candidate’s salary. Normally, a salary or salary range is assigned to a position. In order to clarify a match between the candidate’s ideas and the company at an early stage of the staffing process, this question is asked at the beginning of the interview. This also serves to avoid unnecessary expenditure of time on the part of the candidates - because if a high discrepancy is only discovered later in the process, all parties involved have already invested a lot of time. The question about current and target salary also serves to check the candidates’ knowledge of the market; developments in salary that are too large, but also too small, raise doubts.
