Academic Career & Executive Search

OVERVIEW

Academic Career & Executive Search (ACES) brings game changing innovations for both institutions seeking candidates and candidates seeking positions. These approaches help universities and colleges get precisely the right talent, faster, at far less expense and academics make better career decisions. 

Executive Search: Six search options for every need and budget. The only constant – a unique search process driven by experienced recruiters, researchers and academics guaranteed to attract the ideal candidate. We work with the client until we find the right fit.

Academic Career Services: We help academics understand and leverage their personal and academic assets. The outcome is a Precision Fit™ for them and the institutions. We cap all this with innovative compensation methods and broader search choices. The result is an entirely new search and selection roadmap. One with greater precision and affordability.

The heart of this paradigm is challenging basic assumptions and deep scrutiny of all the factors making careers successful. We bring in AI, neuroscience, psychometrics, mathematics & statistical methods, and modeling to help academics and schools understand their preferences, creating a degree of precision eclipsing current methods.
