Expert-led Recruiting = Qualified Candidates

Some years ago, when we were the hiring managers, we got fed up with the endless stream of unqualified candidates presented to us by our recruiting firms. So, we figured out a better way.

Fervid Recruiting

The problem with traditional recruiting firms is that their people are experts in the field of, well, recruiting.

So, hiring managers and their internal human resource people waste precious time culling through inadequate misfits the recruiter can’t distinguish as unsuitable for the job requirements. And since the hiring manager is already doing the work of the person they need to hire, the traditional recruitment process only adds to the pain.

When we were supervisors in the oil and gas and technology industries, we used to complain, “If only I could clone myself and focus on finding the right person, I could do it myself!” But that wasn’t possible. Until we realized, it was.

And that’s how The FerVID Group – and the most relevant, effective methodology for recruiting executive and technical talent – was born.

Experts Recognize The Best Talent

At The FerVID Group, seasoned industry-expert consultants in the candidate’s field screen and qualify prospective new-hires based on market intelligence and real-world experience.
“We actually do the work you thought you’d be delegating when you hired a staffing firm!”
Before any employer time is invested in meeting candidates, hiring managers and human re-source professionals pre-screen candidates by watching expert-led video interviews that allow clients to conveniently “witness” the most relevant aspects of the interview without the need to coordinate and conduct in-person appointments.

Finalist candidates then can be interviewed in person, which relieves you of the interim screening process you usually endure with traditional staffing and recruitment firms. (Since we typically screen and interview a hundred before we present three-to-five viable candidates, we actually do the work you thought you’d be delegating when you hired a staffing firm!)

And because our process for vetting job-specific qualifications and cultural fit right-matches candidates to your company, the personnel we place are known for making effective quick – starts onto client teams.

Longer-term, successful job placements generated by The FerVID Group process help build productive working relationships between over-taxed human resource departments and busy hiring managers by reducing the need for involvement by functional experts who rely on their human resource departments to find the best people for their teams.

Our Formula, Your Success

A proven, repeatable process delivers high-level candidates, quickly and painlessly.

Meet Your Subject-Matter Expert

The FerVID Group assures client satisfaction by partnering with you to define mutual objectives, determine key performance indicators and implement service agreements to provide the needed services and report progress.

Building on years of industry knowledge, The FerVID Group expert in your candidate’s field will work closely with you to determine your hiring needs. Our consultant will guide you to articulate an accurate and meaningful description of the personnel requirements – in a compelling way to appeal to the most talented and sought-after candidates.

Throughout The FerVID Group process, we will guide you in creating and promoting the position to make your company the employer-of-choice among the best and brightest in the field.

We’ll Sort & Screen ‘Em

As much a data-driven technology company as a staffing partner, The FerVID Group identifies hundreds of potential candidates for a given position. Utilizing our proprietary software, we narrow the prospect pool based on pre-established qualifiers to short-list potential candidates worthy of our expert’s time to evaluate.

Our Expert Interviews First

Next, the expert videotapes an in-depth conversation with the candidate in an interview designed to reveal both technical competence as well as work style. A seasoned industry veteran, our expert handily probes for technical knowledge and capability, and explores the many facets of the candidate’s professional accomplishments and aspirations.

Digital Delivery, Direct to You

Accessing your finalist candidate information through our password-protected, secure site, you can elect to view as much or as little of a candidate as your time and interest dictate. Additionally, resumes, work samples and supporting documentation such as references, background checks, and work permits remain housed on the site ready for reference as needed.

HIRED! Another Win For You

By the time you’ve “met” your finalist candidates in the many multi-media formats we provide, your in-person interviews allow your team to gain deeper insight into the candidate and begin to build a rapport that enhances your chances of securing the best talent available for your position.

And the dual mentorship provided to you and the candidate by your industry-expert process leader enhances the environment for a successful new-hire negotiation likely to lead to a long-loyal employee.

Subject-Matter Experts

Subject-Matter Experts

At The FerVID Group, we have developed a unique and innovative approach to the process of recruiting and hiring. The unique approach involves the inclusion of Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) like yourself who work with us to interview and rate our candidates before we recommend them to hiring managers.

Are You A Subject-Matter Expert?

We would love to have you as part of our team! If you have over 10 years of work experience, consider yourself an expert in your industry, or a niche category of profession, we would love to hear from you.

Benefits

There are multiple benefits that you could get from this opportunity:

  • It gives you an opportunity for networking with clients, candidates and others in your industry, which increases your visibility in the industry.
  • If you are semi-retired or even retired, this could be an opportunity to give back to the community, while keeping yourself engaged and busy – to the extent you want to.
  • Of course, money! This could be a source of supplemental income or pocket change while having fun.

Interested? Submit your details on the contact form here, and we will connect with you to work through your profile and approvals.

How It Works

Once you’re approved, here’s how the process works, and how you get engaged.

  • Once we start working on a particular job requirement, we search for SME’s like yourself, who, in essence, supplement the hiring managers.
  • You provide us with your available time slots (work as little, or as much as you prefer) and a compensation rate (an hourly charge.)
  • Then, we schedule an introduction call with the hiring managers where all three of us: yourself, the hiring manager(s), and a member of The FerVID Group will shortlist some interview questions, candidate characteristics to be evaluated, etc. This helps us create an objective and unbiased rating of each candidate.
  • Once we start finding qualified candidates, you will interview them using our online video conferencing tool. A member from our team will be present on the call to assist you.
  • After the interview, you will fill in the rating form for the candidate and provide your expert comments about the candidate’s fit for the position.
  • As soon as we confirm the interview completion, your account will be credited accordingly.

It’s as simple as that!

I’ve had a wonderful experience working with the Fervid group. They notified me about a technical position with a great company in Houston and worked closely with me to make sure that I would be prepared for the process. In short they treated me like a person rather than a number. I appreciated their attention. Although I did not end up accepting the position because of personal reasons I would have no reservations in working with them in the future.

Create an Enhanced Profile & Get Matched With the Best Opportunities

The profile we create is more than just your resume and contact details. The resume is just the base; a foundation on which we build the profile. We encourage you to share other assets that you might have: presentations, whitepapers, designs, software code, etc. We try to create visual elements from your resume whenever possible like cloud tags, infographics and more.

And finally – the best feature – a video interview. When we match you with an opportunity, we work with a client approved expert (an SME within your category) who helps us lead a discussion/interview online that we record and add to your profile. This discussion represents a highly dynamic piece of your profile because it gives you a chance to represent yourself as much more than just a resume document. It adds the elements of audio and video, and your skills and enthusiasm for your work can shine through.

We get your approval before sharing the profiles with anyone: it’s all controlled by you. So feel free to browse our job listings for any opportunities you might be interested in, or create your profile here here and we will connect with you as soon as we find an ideal opportunity.
