Search Solutions

Contingent. Engagement. Retained.

Choose Your Approach

No professional search is alike; neither is our approach to each challenge. That is why we offer a variety of search solutions for our employer partners to choose from. In our first meeting, we will discuss your needs to determine which search model is best for you.


CarsonLynch Professional Search takes on your search with no commitment from you. You owe us nothing unless you hire one of our candidates. We’re confident you’ll be happy with the quality of the candidates we present.

Engagement Fee

For searches that present a greater challenge: difficult-to-attract professionals, specialized experience, or highly competitive search environments, a portion of our fee is paid upfront to launch the search. The remaining balance isn't due until you successfully hire one of our candidates.

Milestone Retained

Designed for complex, time-sensitive searches. This option shows the highest commitment to form a partnership between CarsonLynch Professional Search and our clients, while giving us maximum credibility with the candidate pool. The result is the highest success rate of all options.
