Why We Do Discovery Calls: A Peek Inside Our Process

Posted on 06 May 2024

At DukeMed, we like to do things a little differently.

Before we can offer meaningful solutions, we need to truly understand our clients' and candidates' unique needs, challenges, and aspirations.

That's why we don't just dive straight into our services; instead, we start with "discovery calls" and "career chats."

What Are Discovery Calls and Career Chats?

These aren't your typical recruiter sales pitches or interviews. Instead, they're open, impartial discussions designed to uncover the real story behind a client's or candidate's situation.

Discovery Calls with Employers:

We start with a discovery call to effectively address the perpetual challenges employers like you increasingly face in the competition to secure the right talent.

Before we even mention our services, we want to carefully understand your business, your challenges, and your goals.

We'll ask questions, listen carefully, and delve into the specifics of what you're looking for in a recruitment partner.

By the end of the (45-minute ) “diagnostic x-ray”, we’ll clearly understand whether we're the right fit for each other, and if so, we can further tailor our services to meet your needs.

Career Chats with Candidates:

Job seekers today often feel like they're just another name on a recruiter's list.

But not with us.

Our career chats are all about you—your experiences, aspirations, and career goals.

We'll take the time to get to know you, understand your unique skill set, and then help you navigate your career path, whether that means finding your next job or advancing in your current role ( sometimes, the latter is the better long-term option).

Why Do We Do It This Way?

Simply put, because it works. By taking the time to truly understand the needs and motivations of our clients and candidates, we can offer more targeted, practical solutions.  

For Employers:

We can tailor our recruitment strategies to find the perfect candidates for your business, saving you time and resources.

Plus, by building a deeper understanding of your company culture and values, we're more likely to make successful placements that last.

For Candidates:

We're not just here to fill a role and put your “bum on a seat” but to help you build a career.

By understanding your unique strengths and goals, we can match you with opportunities that are the perfect fit for you, both professionally and personally, as they become available or take more proactive steps.
