While we can’t share our entire playbook for recruiting success, here is a little bit about the steps we take to help you hire key talent for your organization.
PLAN | DEFINE
We will have you describe the ideal candidate. With your help, we will develop a compelling story to share with potential candidates.
NETWORK | SCREEN
We will then narrow the list of potential candidates within our extensive database based on appropriate criteria and begin networking via email, phone, and well-attended oncology conferences if the timing is right.
We provide potential candidates with the profile of the opportunity, the company, the product, and other pertinent information. Once we begin networking, unless there is a desire for confidentiality, awareness of the career opportunities at your company will be widespread throughout the marketplace.
We will ensure the candidates have the experience necessary to be successful in the new role, and ensure they are genuinely interested in the opportunity. We then collect pertinent information and submit their resume for consideration. Frequent discussions with the hiring manager about candidates enable us to further refine our search.
RESUMÉ SUBMITTALS | INTERVIEWS
After an appropriate number of candidates have been submitted for each position, we will then work with the hiring managers or human resources to rank and/or select the candidates to interview. We will help with the scheduling of interviews, with candidate interview preparation, and with follow up.
OFFERS AND ONBOARDING
If requested, we will help coordinate or conduct background and/or reference checks unless a third party is used. We are able to extend verbal offers and broker negotiations when necessary. We help prepare candidates for their resignation and help coordinate start dates. We always enjoy following up after the new hire has started to learn how the transition is going.

“I have worked with COSI over the past five years to recruit and hire several oncology marketing directors both in the US and in Europe. COSI identified top oncology candidates and was the most productive recruiter in assisting me in building a world class team. Because of their specific expertise and breadth of contacts, I heartily recommend COSI to potential oncology focused clients seeking superior commercial talent. I also found COSI’s integrity, business approach and commitment refreshing.”
“I met David Collins and Commercial Oncology Search, Inc. back in 2011 while I was searching for a new oncology marketing position. Based on that successful experience I have continued to employ their services, most recently using David’s team to expand our current oncology sales force. The latter was a successful national expansion that was accomplished well ahead of an aggressive schedule.”
“Faced with a tight time constraint and the need for a well qualified dynamic VP candidate with oncology sales and marketing expertise, David presented three qualified finalists within weeks. We had an accepted offer in eight weeks and this was one search that I know paid for itself many times over. “
