Our Process

WHAT WE DO

We get to know you with a strategy call.

VMG Recruiting
  • This strategy call gives us the chance to get to know your company and your situation.
  • We learn about the skills your new employees need to have.
  • We learn about the soft skills your employees must have.
  • We learn about your office culture inside and out.
  • We will predict your needs.

We specially prepare structured interviews for candidates.

VMG Recruiting
  • Every position is different.
  • Every manager is different.
  • Every marketplace is different.
  • That’s why we take the time to craft performance and behavioral based interviews.
  • We’ve got our own unique process, and we’re always working to improve it.
  • With our custom interviews, we’ll make sure the candidates you see are fitted to your culture and skills requirements.

We keep you in the loop with weekly updates.

VMG Recruiting
  • We know how important it is to keep communication flowing.
  • That’s why we schedule a 15-minute phone call every week.
  • We keep you updated on progress and make sure we know if your needs change.
  • Your hiring manager will receive a progress report via email every Friday.
  • We want you to see our progress.

We send you the first candidate in about 10 business days.

VMG Recruiting
  • Ideally, you’ll talk to the candidate and let us know how it goes.
  • It’s important that we hear your thoughts on the new candidate.
  • That way we can see how close we are to the mark.

We won’t stop till the position is filled!

VMG Recruiting
  • We’re pretty good at what we do, so we usually only have to send three or four candidates to our clients before we’ve found the right fit.
  • But in the toughest cases, we’ll stick with it.
  • We refine our approach and keep you informed of every step in our process.

“VMG provided us with quality candidates and was able to assist with a variety of roles, from executives on down. I was particularly impressed by VMG not inundating me with resumes but only scheduling interviews of those people who were carefully vetted and likely to be a good fit. We often had hard-to-fill roles with skills that were hard to come by but VMG kept on proactively hunting for suitable candidates until the role was filled. They were also very pro-active with hiring managers to keep them updated of their progress during the recruitment process.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I spend 15 minutes a week talking to you?

We need to learn more about you if we’re going to give you the best possible service. It takes a little time to get to know you, your company, and your needs. Things come up in conversation that nobody can predict. We’re always learning to serve our clients better, and always learning needs we couldn’t have known in advance. Even with our biggest repeat clients, we always learn something new on every call.

Aren’t you just another agency?

We’re not an agency. We’re more than that. We’re a strategic partner for our clients. That means we’ll get to know you. It means we’ll get to know your company. It means we’ll work with you and find the candidate who best suits your needs. At VMG, we investigate your market. We investigate your positioning. We take the time to understand how this hire fits into your long-term strategic objectives. We’re not out to put an employee on your payroll. We’re out to find the right employee not only for now, but for five or ten years from now.

Why is VMG’s service worth investing in advance?

With an agency, you’d be lucky to have a recruiter spend two hours a day on your company. VMG’s way of doing things allows us to spend the full eight hours exclusively on you. Agencies run on a gamble. They pick up five clients and bet they can get one hire. VMG doesn’t gamble. When we accept a client, we commit to filling the position. Not only that, but we also commit to filling it with the best possible candidate. We can only afford that level of commitment with a client who is as invested in us as we are in them.

What if there’s a better candidate out there?

Let’s not mince words: there’s always a better candidate out there. You can always find someone who fits your position and company culture better. But here’s the truth: if your ideal candidate lives on the far side of the moon, you’ll never find them. These aren’t pretty words, but they’re true. The perfect is the enemy of the good. Sometimes it’s more important to make the right hire than it is to make the perfect hire.

“Vanguard has been a valuable recruitment partner for a number a years. Megan Dimaulo has always maintained a very high level of integrity, as well as, the candidates she presents to be interviewed. I have an excellent working relationship with Megan. She has a high level of understanding as a Recruiter and always takes time to fully brief herself on our vacancies, putting forward only those candidates who closely match our requirements. Megan has a very people-centric approach that goes beyond just matching skills and experience to a job spec. I would have no hesitation in recommending Megan and Vanguard for their excellent recruiting service.”
