Our Process


Whether you’ve submitted your resume to a position we have posted or are interested in future opportunities, we’ll reach out with a phone call or via email to schedule a time to speak. We want to fully understand your skills and experience and what you’re looking for in your next role. Together, we’ll define search parameters so we’re not presenting opportunities that wouldn’t meet your needs. When these match an open role at one of our company partners, we proceed to the next step in our process. Depending on the position, we may conduct skills assessments at this time.


Our company partners are constantly offering new opportunities. Just because we don’t have anything that’s a great match today doesn’t mean we won’t tomorrow! Once you’re registered withNelson, you’ll receive emailed job opening updates that match your specifications, as well as personalized outreach when we’re working with a client on a role we believe would be a great match for you.


Once we confirm that you’re interested in a particular opportunity, if your skills and experience match what our company partner is seeking, we’ll proceed with the interview process. Our interview process is designed to be stress free and allow you to present your skills and experience in the best light possible. We use patterned-interviewing techniques to make sure you’ll be successful in our company partners’ working environment, and we verify that you understand the company culture, role responsibilities, and working environment. Interviews may be conducted via phone, on-site at Nelson, or on-site at our company partner, depending on the role. Your Nelson recruiter will be fully transparent about what to expect during this process, and will even help you prepare by helping you understand the role requirements as well as what in your profile makes you a good fit.


If you’re selected for the role through the interview process, we’ll continue to our verification process. This may include skills assessments, reference checks, background checks, I-9 verification, or additional screening required by our company partner.


Before you start, you’ll work with your Nelson recruiter to understand or negotiate compensation and be aware of all the benefits offered to you. We arrange any onboarding or pre-engagement training you need and will give you all the information about your assignment you need to be successful.


Once you start on an assignment, we’ll continue to check in and offer support every way we can. In fact, many professionals we place reach back out to Nelson when they’re ready for their next opportunity, or to find their next new hire. We highly value personal relationships and look forward to a long working relationship together!

While this process is standard for most of our positions, steps may be modified to fit the needs of our company partners. Your recruiter will share exactly what to expect from your job search process with Nelson.
