Published by David Smith on November 25, 2014

Leaders at several of the GovCon sector’s largest players gave us the names and backgrounds of recruiters they believe everyone in the industry should know for our “Top 10 Recruiters for 2014? story published Monday.

Of those 10, ESGI President Evan Scott volunteered to share his views and perspectives on the executive recruiting landscape for an industry that has seen the budget environment change and consolidation by companies.

Scott also offered ideas for steps recruiters can take to build a successful practice and the role executive recruiters play in the interview process.

Evan Scott: The word “search” in executive search has become a misnomer. When specializing in the federal market, the network a knowledgeable recruiter has built will typically produce highly sought-after talent for clients.

It is important to be known within this community and work at developing relationships every day.
