Frequently Asked Questions
1. A step-by step explanation of how this works:
We provide a confidential and professional landing spot for the Senior Professionals who want confidentiality and advice on the Canadian tech job market.
Talented execs and professionals are reaching out directly to us to inquire about opportunities.
We are actively prospecting in key markets, seeking out individuals with specific skills that are in demand, and who are considering coming home.
Each individual has given us permission to help with introductions
We connect with every candidate, seeking to understand their goals and plans and the types of organizations where they'll be best suited.
We also pre-qualify the companies that we partner with, putting you first in line for these introductions.
We maintain candidate confidentiality by initially providing profiles that contain only high level information about the candidate. This is important to the individual and ensures that there aren't HR concerns with unsolicited resumes.
Only if we proceed to a personal introduction AND the partner eventually hires the candidate, will there be fee. Any fee arrangement will be discussed and agreed upon prior to introduction.
We are executive search professionals, so everyone will get personal service throughout the selection and hiring process, to ensure that a match is best for both the partner and the candidate. The candidate experience is critical.
2. What does the program cost?
Only if a partner opts to hire an individual who was introduced through the program, will a fee apply.
Our rates for successful hires through Canada Connect are aligned with typical contingent recruitment fees, and can be explained in detail with your directly.
And of course if you have questions – just ask!
3. Will partner companies be responsible for sponsoring international visas, paying for relocation expenses, or helping with the logistics of a move to Canada?
Part of our screening process includes understanding whether each individual is a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident or will require a visa. Partners will know this at the time of the introduction and can continue, or not, at their discretion.
We will also ask about the individual’s plan to move to Canada, and whether they are prepared to pay for their own relocation. If they require or request assistance, the company will know before getting started.
As with all of our work, we want to be sure that there are no surprise complications.
