Futurestep Takes Recruitment Nationwide

Futurestep, an executive recruitment service based in Los Angeles that registers candidates online, expanded its services to candidates and employers nationwide after a successful three-month trial in LA.

The company initiated a multimillion dollar national print and radio advertising campaign aimed at attracting potential candidates in major cities including New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Washington, D.C. and Atlanta. The campaign already has prompted more than 130,000 candidates to register at the site, the company said.

Futurestep registers potential candidates online at futurestep.com, using a series of questionnaires that assess each individual's organizational preferences and work style, as well as professional business qualifications and experience. There is no charge to applicants.

Futurestep is an independent subsidiary of Korn/Ferry International, but the service may be retained by any business in addition to Korn/Ferry's client base.

Within 24 hours of completing the questionnaires, candidates can log onto their personal homepage at Futurestep and retrieve career feedback, including potential market value. Candidates then become eligible for positions listed exclusively with Futurestep.
