What to Expect from Bolster

Here’s what to expect during the matching process

The Search

Clients leverage our platform to search the Bolster talent marketplace for members who match their criteria, or they work with a Bolster team member to assist in their search.

The Connection

Our clients determine who they would like to contact through the Bolster platform and, if the member is available and interested, the client and member set up time to talk. Members will receive this introduction request via email from clients@bolster.com. Since clients may reach out to multiple members, we recommend members reply as soon as possible with interest and availability.

The Discussion

Every connection process is different. We make recommendations based on role type and ask clients to be respectful of the member’s time, knowing that our members are ‘ready-to-work’ and that a small work engagement is the best way to see if there’s a fit on both sides. We encourage regular communication during the decision period so that both the member and client are aware of their standing and decisions.

The Engagement

Member and client contract directly on an engagement and invoicing & billing is set up through the Bolster platform. Things to consider when kicking off an engagement:

  • Length of assignment
  • Compensation/rate
  • Scope of work
  • Success metrics

First, we engage with our clients to best determine their needs and guide clients through questions like:

  • What type of on-demand engagement is needed?
  • What are the outcomes of a successful engagement?
  • What skills are required?
  • Is there a location requirement?
  • Are there specific industry experience requirements?
  • What is the timeline?
  • Ideal search process for the role type

We’ll build a slate of candidates for you to review and reach out to directly or we ‘ll do the work for you.

Here’s what to expect on timing to be matched

Timing is highly dependent on demand and role. We are working to build the demand side of the marketplace, and we anticipate having more opportunities as the marketplace becomes more automated. It’s hard to predict, but the more complete your profile, the better your chances of being matched for opportunities.
