Development of Recruitment Criteria

In conjunction with your company representatives, The Burke Group will develop screening criteria for recruitment purposes. An established criterion includes determining the behaviours and attitudes required to fit with you company’s culture and environment, as well as the specific educational and technical requirements for the position(s). This allows us to customize the screening process to meet your specific requirements.

Resume Screening

Resumes received by The Burke Group will be screened according to criteria determined by your supervisory/management team. Telephone pre-screens will be conducted to determine initial candidate suitability. A list will be generated outlining candidates not selected, including relevant rationale. A total list of candidates selected for pre-qualification will be maintained to avoid future duplication. A sample telephone pre-screen form is attached to this proposal. The telephone pre-screen form is customized for each client based upon the established criteria for the position(s). It is this step of the pre-screen that facilitates a fair and equitable recruitment process.

Initial Personal Contact / Education Verification

Candidates will be expected to attend a brief interview at The Burke Group to provide proof of credentials and complete a reference authorization form. All candidates must provide proof of credentials required as determined by your company.
