If the client approaches you about a full-time opportunity, you need to speak with your Flex Execs liaison as soon as possible.

If I work with you, am I prohibited from working with other search firms?

No, however, make sure that anyone working with you advises you when and where you will be presented and before they do so. This will help ensure that you are not disqualified for a position because your credentials were submitted by two companies.

How do I know where my credentials are sent?

Flex Execs will never present you to a company without disclosing its identify to you prior to the submittal. You have an important decision-making role in the credential submission process. This protects Flex Execs Management Solutions and its clients from disputes and you from potential disqualification of your candidacy.

How much time will I have to invest?

If you have been contacted about a specific client opening, we will generally spend a brief period of time determining if you have the required credentials and are a good match with the client culture. If it looks like you're a match, you can expect to be invited for a phone interview with our staff. Assuming there is still a possibility of a good match, additional time would be spent interviewing with the client. The total time involved varies with the client and the position.
