confidential matter between you and Flex Execs. You should
refer all questions to us. A response you might use is: 'I'll
be happy to have Flex Execs call you to discuss your question.'

Yes! IF you refer a new business
opportunity to us that we are not working on. Ask your Flex

If the client approaches you
about a full-time opportunity, you need to speak with your

place between Flex Execs Management Solutions and the client
company to avoid any misunderstandings about the client's
obligations under their agreement with Flex

No, however, make sure that anyone
working with you advises you when and where you will be presented
and before they do so. This will help ensure that you
are not disqualified for a position because your credentials
were submitted by two companies.
How do I know where my credentials are sent?
Flex Execs will never present
you to a company without disclosing its identify to you prior
to the submittal. You have an important decision-making role
in the credential submission process. This protects Flex Execs
Management Solutions and its clients from disputes and you
from potential disqualification of your candidacy.
What kinds of information will you need from us?
We are interested in the details
of your current duties and responsibilities. A list of accomplishments
is also very helpful as is a statement of the benefit you
will bring to a new employer. In addition, because we will
be working with you on your next career move, you should be
prepared with detailed information about your salary history.
If you are being presented for an interim assignment, you
will be asked to complete certain pre-employment paperwork,
and to undergo a background check.
What information can I expect about your clients?
We try to give you a brief overview
of the company, Its financial situation, corporate organization,
culture and work ethic, company philosophy, benefit programs
and future career path.
How much time will I have to invest?
If you have been contacted about
a specific client opening, we will generally spend a brief
period of time determining if you have the required credentials
and are a good match with the client culture. If it looks
like you're a match, you can expect to be invited for a phone
interview with our staff. Assuming there is still a possibility
of a good match, additional time would be spent interviewing
with the client. The total time involved varies with the client
and the position.
What if the fit is not right with a particular client?
We work with many clients who
have similar needs and, with your permission, we will present
your credentials to them. If you are interested, we ask you
to prepare a list of your top 15 choices for your next employer;
we will make every effort to present your credentials to the
right hiring authorities at those companies.
