Initial Consults

Initial Consults

Initial Consults are designed to enhance the recruitment process and are confidential interviews between the client and a Capital Resource Network representative.

The Initial Consult can occur in advance of a final employment or decision to relocate.

An initial consult in advance of employment does not imply a commitment.  It simply helps clients explore options, offer an alternative perspective, and provide insights to the full range of services that would be available to the candidate.

As a neutral party, clients can ask their Capital Resource Network representative important questions to assist in making an informed decision about moving to the Capital Region. Discussions may span across a variety of non-employment topics such as specific resources needed to address conditions, challenges, and other private concerns.
