Our Process

We're not your typical direct hire placement firm.

Client Visits

It's our goal to find the most viable candidates who match your corporate culture. We achieve this by visiting our clients' headquarters to meet key decision-makers and hiring managers. This provides us with important information about environments and expectations, including tempo & pace, physical corporate identity, corporate climate & tone, size & growth quotient, workforce tendencies, and employee retention.

Candidate Evaluation

Depth. That's what we seek during candidate evaluations. Through our three part interviewing and screening process, we determine the skill sets, personality profiles and wish list criteria of marketing, sales and information technology professionals. We always adhere to this process because we don't want to waste your time or theirs.

Personality Profile

True character and work persona is what we uncover in this step, along with the candidate's method of problem solving, ability to respond to challenges, Interpretation of success, preferred work style and environment. vision of the future, level of creativity, and interpersonal skills.

Wish List Criteria

We ask our candidates to describe to us the ideal career option. This enables us to clearly define the motivating factors of a decision, as well as preferences for their target market, CEO's, consumers, distributors, product or service sales, overtime restrictions, inside/outside sales & new or repeat sales, ideal industries and corporate culture, and salary and commission requirements.

“As in most sales, relationship building is an integral part of a prospect commitment. Integrity and dependability are a close second and third. CMI has gone out of their way to exhibit these qualities, far beyond competitive placement agencies. The quality of the candidates and the responsiveness in time related hiring is what keeps me coming back.”

Chris Wiggins
Director of Sales, InforMax Inc

CMI got it right with the first candidate they sent me because they took the time to get to know my organization and our specific needs. They did an excellent job of pre-screening candidates and found us someone who had the right skill set and is a great corporate fit. Their in-depth process saved me hours of time interviewing applicants.

Catherine Zaic
Vice President of Sales, Avectra

CMI is on my short, short list. They are honest, they are thorough and they LISTEN. In one initial conversation with CMI, I can get all the information I need on a candidate to make a good decision on the next steps. I don’t feel like I’m hiring someone because they are available. I am hiring that person because they are someone CMI would also hire internally.

Ingrid Teasdale
Corporate Recruiting Manager, Vastera

CMI has been key to our recruiting success over the past 5 years. The consultative and genuine recruiting style makes it easy to work with the staff at CMI. CMI has also made the effort to get to know our business and culture. CMI has established a true partnership with us and I consider them an extension of the recruiting function.
