Our Process

"It's not a transaction. It's a relationship."

This statement is the heartbeat of AGORA's process, and what sets us apart from nearly every other search firm. We aren't in the business of placing job-seekers. We start with the client - gaining a deep, insightful understanding of the organization's precise needs - and work hard to find them the best possible candidates for their leadership positions.


A simple understanding of our process reveals 4 insightful phases:

Phase 1


  • Meet with hiring authorities 

  • Discover the story of the organization

  • Identify unique message for the position

  • Identify targets for networking

Phase 2


  • Initiate networking and calls work 

  • Conduct comprehensive interviews

  • Begin thorough referencing process

  • Meet with final candidates



Phase 3


  • Presentation of final candidates

  • Preparation for interviews

  • Client interviews final candidates

  • Debrief client and candidate(s)



Phase 4


  • Connect with client on final decisions​

  • Work through offer extension process

  • Partner with client for successful on-boarding

  • Follow-up and review
