ROI Analyses

Telephone research is real-time, primary research while what we find online is secondary research. The information we gather from calling into a company simply cannot be found online. The key to succeeding in recruiting is learning how to increase candidate quality, creating talent-rich pipelines and maximizing competitive intelligence while spending minimal time managing information overload. Supplementing internet findings with original telephone research elevates candidate quality and empowers the proactive pipelining we all seek.

  • Providing very clear and concise updates with the status of the work in progress

  • Completing a very thorough intake

  • Quality of work is consistent

  • Providing the most on-target names (not the most names in general but the most qualified individuals)

  • Completing research when other firms said they could not complete it or felt they were blocked.


We at ExecuQuest Corp. were thrilled to be recognized as the winning firm.  We specialize in the lost art of real-time telephone research and training, supplementing simultaneous internet findings with on-target, qualified, passive talent.
