The real value of a search firm isn't in the number of opportunities they have, but rather the information they can provide before the first initial interview. With any sales engagement the more information you have up front, the more effective and meaningful the meeting will become. This same philosophy rings true with the interviewing process, which is simply another sales engagement. If you come across unprepared for an interview it typically ends the same way an unprepared sales engagement does.....with a closed door.
