There are only 3 categories where any candidate can learn of a job lead: Job Postings; Recruiting Firms; and Word of Mouth. Endeavor Agency helps clients in all three areas.
Job Postings – Most candidates know of only 4 or 5 job boards which they use regularly. There are hundreds! Individuals simply do not have the time, knowledge or resources to find them all. Endeavor Agency invested hundreds of hours in compiling a database of numerous job boards for you to utilize. Endeavor helps you make the connections and start the conversations with key people on the inside of the company to improve your odds more than 10x of getting your foot in the door for an interview.
Recruiting Firms – Individual job seekers generally know of only a small handful of recruiters. There are more than 200,000 recruiters in the US and hundreds of leading firms. Endeavor Agency invested tremendous time and resources in compiling a database of several hundred leading firms, categorized by their focus with hot links to their websites. Most recruiting firms do not advertise their jobs publicly. They prefer to hunt their candidates. Additionally, Endeavor helps you identify targeted recruiters to improve your odds dramatically of securing the interview.
Word of Mouth – More than 80% of all jobs are filled via word of mouth without ever being advertised. There is only one way to find a job lead that is filled via word of mouth – you have to put yourself in the conversation. Endeavor helps you target the specific companies you want. Then we help you identify the key people on the inside, make connections and start conversations.
Working with Endeavor helps you identify many more job leads and get your foot in the door for interviews.
Everyone goes through different phases and changes in their lives that take them in different directions professionally. Change causes significant anxiety in most people. Endeavor listens closely to its clients to know more about them as a person, as well as a professional, to help them get a clear picture of what they want out of their careers and lives.
Professional Career Marketing
Before you can start looking for a new opportunity you need to have your professional marketing presentation in the best possible shape. Endeavor helps you with your Resume, Cover Letters and On-Line Profiles. Good employers want to see a sharp, well put together candidate and Endeavor helps ensure you stand above the other applicants. Employers in nice locations have many, well-qualified applicants from which to choose. Endeavor helps present you in a way that communicates you are the right one to join their team.
Interview Preparation and Coaching
Securing an interview is wonderful. But, the company also invited 10-20 other sharp candidates for the first round who look and sound a lot like you. Winning the offer for good jobs normally involves a series of interviews, which could involve 4 or 5 rounds, or more. Endeavor Agency prepares clients to win using the Proactive Interview model. This proprietary model teaches clients how to drive home their value and steer the interview to a successful close of securing the next steps. Your Endeavor agent will conduct live mock interviews via video conference to help you craft your answers and improve your skills. Remember, your competitors have generally won the interviews for which they have competed, too. What is your competitive advantage? The training, coaching and practice you receive from Endeavor Agency.
Most opportunities look great to a candidate on the interview, but every employer can put on a good show and hide the dirty laundry for a short period of time. The average tenure for a professional with a new organization is less than three years, largely because they soon realized things were not entirely as they seemed in the interview. To make a good decision you need to have as much information as possible about the opportunity and not just what the employer is presenting. Endeavor helps you do this due diligence work. Having good guidance tremendously improves your odds of getting a good opportunity.
Business experts will tell you that negotiating directly for yourself, without assistance, is a huge mistake. Negotiations are full of pressure, even friendly ones. If it is your job, your new practice and your livelihood on the line there is no way for you to be unemotional. Even professional negotiators don’t like negotiating for themselves in person because it becomes very personal. Negotiation is a skill set that takes years to master just as it took many years to become a competent executive leader. You would not let someone perform surgery on you who had just recently read a book about it but never performed one, would you? Why would you even consider negotiating your employment agreement yourself if you have had no training in it? Your career, your livelihood and hundreds of thousands of dollars are at stake. Endeavor’s guidance in this area alone can more than pay for your entire investment.
Getting a new job as a professional most of the time means moving to a new city. It is a huge undertaking to move your entire household from one city to the next. Moving is one of the most stressful events in any family’s life. Endeavor provides you with significant assistance to help make the whole process a lot less stressful.

The average time frame it takes is from 3-6 months start to finish. Some clients go quicker, and others take longer. Most of the variability in the time frame depends on the client’s criteria and how diligent they are in following the process. Working with Endeavor should only shorten the amount of time to succeed versus someone trying to do everything on their own.
There are 3 broad categories where any candidate can find a job lead: posted jobs, outside recruiting firms, and word of mouth. Endeavor helps clients in all three areas. Endeavor brings a lot to the table to help clients succeed, including additional resources, manpower, expertise, a disciplined process, and the perseverance to stick with it. Endeavor helps find key people inside the client’s targeted organizations. Then, our data team helps find their contact information, LinkedIn profiles and crafts the outreach messaging to use.

Endeavor partners with our clients on all job leads regardless the source of the lead.

Additionally, Endeavor helps clients improve their odds of winning offers during multiple rounds of interviews, evaluate offers and negotiate the terms of employment.
Recruiting firms are hired by employers to search for candidates to present the one job for which they were hired to fill. The employer pays the recruiting firm, and all the recruiter’s loyalty and fiduciary responsibility is with the employer. They are generally professional and often helpful. However, they have no incentive to ensure you, as an individual, win the job offer.
Recruiters present the same opportunity to potentially hundreds of other candidates. Each individual recruiter can only help you with the one opportunity for which he/she was hired. If that opportunity is not the right fit, you must start the process over with a completely different recruiter to see another opportunity.
Endeavor works for you, the individual executive or professional. The Endeavor team will help you on any potential job leads and will stay with you throughout the entire process. Endeavor is incentivized to help you win at every step and gives you an advantage in hundreds of ways over the other candidates competing for the same positions.
When it is time to look at legal agreements Endeavor recommends that a licensed attorney be involved. There is too much at stake not to have good guidance. If you have a good relationship with your current attorney and believe he or she has expertise in the areas needed, we encourage you to do so. If you do not have an attorney then Endeavor can line you up with one who has the expertise that you need.
The partnership model offered by Endeavor makes it easy for clients to afford even if they are currently in between jobs. Endeavor charges a small percentage of the first-year income once the client accepts a new position. This ensures both the client and Endeavor are all focused on the same thing, which is the client’s success. Endeavor does ask for a small initiation fee at the beginning, generally $500-$1,000. This is far below the cost of accepting a client and delivering the services outlined. The initiation fee is in place to make certain the client is serious and committed to the process.
The Completion Fee is invoiced once the client accepts the new job. Monthly payment options are available as well.
