You Can’t Share a Message that Is Never Opened

** As published on AESC Bluesteps

Sending that first message to someone is a critical part of the job seeking process. The subject line needs to give the reader an interest in learning more and a desire to read the message. Candidates should consider: What is their mission? What is the most efficient way to achieve that mission? For many years, executives have tried to create the perfect formula for a message subject line, but there is no single solution. Three things to consider in creating an effective e-mail subject line are: creativity, relevance, and enticement.

Talent Scouting

 Boardroom Talent Scouting 
Attracting the right executive and assembling a high-performance team is only the start. Ongoing talent management, employee engagement, and leadership development are crucial to maintaining competitive advantage. Given the rapidly evolving needs of our clients, at TRANSEARCH we have adapted our executive search capabilities to facilitate more value-add and a holistic enterprise approach. With Talent Scouting, you obtain a candidate short-list and pipeline building without the financial commitment of a fully retained search. By leveraging a market research-based approach to proactively engage with high-performing individuals, we give your team a head start in the arms race for talent. Perhaps a C-level executive is retiring, and you have potential successors, but you wonder if the best candidate is employed at another company. Or maybe you’re not ready to hire, but you’re ready to browse and prefer a relaxed, natural courtship.

Private Equity & Venture Capital


Many believe robust investment opportunities are the linchpin to a healthy, growing economy. Industries such as high tech, life science, renewable energy and clean technology maintain alluring growth potential. Prevailing interest in BRIC countries now includes Africa as the new hotspot, while Europe and China stagnate. In recent years the market has seen steady quarter-over-quarter increase in deal activity. Likewise, the high price of doing deals in a seller’s market is attracting interest in long-hold funds. Yet at the bottom line, if private equity and venture capital are key factors to a strong economy, organizations must bank on the right leaders to be enterprising difference-makers.
