Our search firm is unique. Our founder and CEO Dr. Arlene Barro conducts her searches in an unusual way. She gives her client-employers one Right Fit candidate for each search and concludes the search. Can you present yourself as the one Right Fit candidate to an employer? Absolutely, if you learn her Right Fit Method. That's why she wrote WIN Without Competing! Career Success the Right Fit Way, nominated for a business book award, to teach you how to do what she does. Read what an employer said about Dr. Arlene's Right Fit Method. She placed 40 candidates with the founding Editor-in-Chief of WebMD, Tom Lombardo who shares his thoughts about the Method.
Here's how it all began...
In 1995, Dr. Arlene Barro entered executive search after spending many years in high-level healthcare management and consulting. Accustomed to taking the road less traveled, she decided to create a method for presenting one Right Fit candidate to client-employers and conclude the search. Undaunted by the prevailing mindset that employers must compare and contrast many candidates to find the "best," Dr. Arlene determined that this mindset could lead to hiring the wrong fit. She told me what her dad taught her as a child about standards. "Don't pick the 'best' banana; select the one that meets your standards. If all the bananas are rotten and you select the 'best' you still have a rotten banana!" Eureka! Dr. Arlene would, in concert with the employer, create a Blueprint of the Right Fit candidate.
In 1998, Dr. Arlene pilot-tested the early version of her Right Fit Method with Tom Lombardo, Founding Editor-in-Chief of WebMD. Says Lombardo: "I hired 40 candidates from Dr. Barro. The Right Fit Method worked for WebMD’s growth in the US, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Together, we built WebMD.”
