A small Digital Marketing company who needed high value and high performance from new employees. They did not have much room for error. Someone with high base salary with good skills in some specific area of their business, was not what they needed at this point in the company growth. They needed someone who could where many technical hats and be able to quickly figure out what they did not know.
What They Had Done
The company spent quite a bit of time recruiting, but was unable to find a match. The less experienced individuals they interviewed could not convince the company they had the capability to wear multiple hats and figure out problems as their client’s needs changed. The more experienced individuals knew certain things well, but wanted hefty salaries. They were also less willing to take on task outside their specialty.
Decide found a candidate whose resume looked good, but did not show her true potential. She had the right skills and had done some good work, but her experience was light. Decide had her take our problem-solving assessment. She scored in the top 2% of all candidates – a rare find.
Decide contacted the Digital Marketing company and told them we have the equivalent of drafting Tom Brady in the 7th round, except we know it is going to work. New England was just hoping.
The client brought her in and hired her immediately. She has proven to be an intelligent, quick learner and problem solver. She has handled everything she has been asked to do. She is doing it at a fraction of the cost of a seasoned individual who could do half the work.
