You will get better, more efficient and cheaper recruitment processes

The combination of a professional researcher education and the researcher’s passion for their industry creates a solid basis for assisting you in your recruitment processes. When the academy is complete, your new researcher will contribute to cutting recruitment cost by eliminating the need for access to job portals and recruitment agencies and cutting down advertising costs – which in total makes for a great business case.


We create trust in the researcher’s online business card (LinkedIn profile)

When the academy is completed all participants receive a professional LinkedIn Profile Makeover from our sister company Makeover Services International. This ensures a professional online appearance, which contributes positively to the overall candidate experience and creates trust. Branding your researcher through a professionally updated LinkedIn profile also has a positive effect on your overall corporate brand, and helps attract more candidates. Normal price for a LinkedIn Profile Makeover is $388 incl. VAT (one language version).

Researcher warranty

In the event that your researcher does not live up to your expectations we offer the following warranty:

We will replace your researcher once without additional fees. The warranty is valid one month from the researcher’s start date. We strive to deliver a replacement with a professional and educational background as close to the original researcher as possible. A researcher can only be replaced once under warranty.


Establishing the cooperation

We will follow up with both parties to ensure that the cooperation works, and that all conditions are met. This assures a good experience for everyone involved, and a rapid establishment of the cooperation.

Expenses for services such as LinkedIn subscriptions and the like are covered by the client, or are expended on periodical invoices from Pointshare Recruitment. Pointshare Academy and other material (such as search guide) are currently available in English only, but the guide can be acquired in other languages for a small additional fee.

The educational concept is generally based on free subscriptions (such as LinkedIn etc.).

Our researchers are explicitly educated in screening of professional competencies and not in screening of personal competencies.

All invoices are issued with a payment deadline of 10 days net.


Pointshare’s recruitment process

We locate suitable candidates through our network and additional research of students and student administrators throughout the country. In addition we advertise through our website and relevant social media channels.

We obtain CV, application, educational papers and transcripts of records, as well as written and/or oral references from previous employers. If required we also request the candidate’s criminal records.

All candidates go through our online video screening process with an online interview, which consists of 10 questions regarding personal and professional competencies. The online interview is conducted in English. We make an assessment of the candidate and follow up with an additional interview, where we focus on the upcoming assignment. Finally, we discuss the completion of Pointshare Academy and the nature of the employment with Pointshare Recruitment or our client.
