Triple I Process

Most third party recruiters are non-technical individuals. Due to their lack of work in a technical capacity, this leaves their capabilities limited. Recruit My Friends is enthused to offer you Talent Managers that have actually worked in a technical capacity in your industry!

With a recent survey of our clients, a third party recruiter usually maintained contact with only one person at the company V the HR Manager. Recruit My Friends takes a more hands-on approach with all clients V administering informational interviews with at least one individual from each of the following categories:

  • CEO, CTO and any other executive involved in the recruitment decisions
  • Middle-tier management that have grown with the company and help execute the company・s growth strategies
  • Personnel that the candidates will report to
  • At least one new graduate that joined the companies within the last year, and 2 recent graduates that have been with the company since graduating and are on different career paths
  • HR-related staff that will assist in coordinating the interview process

These integrated information interviews enable us to communicate an accurate overview to our top talent. By administering quick and efficient informational interviews to key individuals in your organization, we can determine which Managers and teams can effectively attract and retain top talent. Through the Triple I process, we are able to gain an in-depth overview of the company encompassing the history and culture, executive and management teams, different career paths an individual can grow into, the company・s growth goals, and skill sets needed in future candidates to grow the company properly.



TOTTs is the most prestigious category of candidates that Recruit My Friends represents. TOTT stands for "Top-of-the-Top" candidates, which are individuals that have achieved levels of excellence in numerous areas of their life.

Each individual has numerous significant accomplishments, a high level of Emotional Intelligence (EQ- Emotional Quotient) and extraordinary references. TOTT Candidates are usually highly satisfied with their current roles, and are the hardest market to attract to your company because they are highly coveted in their current organizations. TOTT Candidates are known to effectively craft situations in their favour, create limitless possibilities for companies that can effectively encompass their level of talent, and need constant recognition and new challenging opportunities.

They significantly change the directions and results of teams and companies, and are the most desirable individuals known to just "get things done".

"The first major hurdle after graduation is finding a job. Not just any job, but the perfect job. One that matches each and every one of your expectations and starts you on the career path of your choice. My idea of the perfect job was working in a small software company giving me more responsibility. Young, dynamic, and challenging were just a few of the requirements I had for the work environment. I was also specific about my salary expectations. Recruit My Friends was able to cater numerous prospective companies and jobs exactly to my specifications. I filtered the list to my liking and interviewed with the prospective employers. After each interview, Recruit My Friends talked with the employer and provided me with feedback that I would not normally get. I was able to take this feedback and improve myself for future interviews. After a number of interviews, I pursued a job within the mobile industry. After being in this job since mid 2008, I can say that Recruit My Friends found the perfect job for me."

"Working with Jackie and Recruit My Friends was a great experience. Having recently moved from Vancouver to Toronto I was concerned that I wouldn・t have the professional network to help with my job search. Jackie took care of that, introducing me to numerous executives and senior managers who were looking for good people with my skill set which ultimately helped me to secure several interviews at numerous companies. Her intimate knowledge of the industry and the companies she represents coupled with her guidance and support made interview preparation a snap. Once I received an offer she helped forge my negotiation strategy to ensure I didn・t leave any money on the table."
