Our “Sentimental Head Hunting©” method was created by Alcanda Matchmaking in 2013, and updated and patented by Matchmaking Corporation© in 2018, with the aim of uniting, in a professional and ethical way, like-minded people with the commitment to share their lives.
It combines techniques commonly used in the search for senior executives by professional Head Hunters, hence its name. But it also adds processes based on UNE and ISO international quality standards, which provide the rigor, professionalism, security and guarantees what clients expect when hiring Matchmaking services.
- UNE 93200: Used for the definition and elaboration of services offering and quality commitments.
- ISO 9001: Utilizada para la definición de los diferentes Procesos Operativos en la búsqueda de pareja para los Clientes.
- ISO 10667: Used to define the different Operational Processes in the search for the ideal partner for our Clients.
However, when it comes to the search for something so personal, apart from the operational protocols designated by these regulations, we also apply a holistic approach that takes into account desires, personality traits, past experiences, life goals, hobbies, etc. through the following phases:
SENTIMENTAL HEAD-HUNTING© PHASES:
It consists of an in-person meeting with the potential client to learn about their personal history, lifestyle, expectations, preferences, their “emotional baggage” and what has worked for them, and not, in their past relationships.
This personal knowledge of the future client allows us to determine the type of partner and relationship that is potentially more compatible, to identify the necessary requirements of that “ideal person”, focusing on the emotional, socio-cultural aspect and the various affinities. In this way, we avoid falling into possible mistakes from past relationships.
2CANDIDATES SEARCH & PRE-SELECTION
Once the criteria of your future partner have been established, these are collected in an objective Search Profile which is agreed with the client. This document allows us to focus the search without restricting it since it is a “living document” that adapts to the evolution of the process.
In each case, a personalized search strategy is established and various search channels are activated which, from our experience and knowledge of the Spanish reality, are considered more suitable for each client.
3EVALUATION & PERSONAL INTERVIEWS
Alcanda Matchmaking’s team of consultants conducts in-depth personal interviews with Afiliates they have identified as potentially compatible with the client. Only in the case that both are aligned in personality, lifestyle, expectations and other parameters contemplated, we consider that there is maximum compatibility.
On the other hand, this face-to-face process allows us to assess factors such as personality, emotional availability, values, body language and personal presentation that cannot be appreciated in a purely online experience.
4INTRODUCTIONS “THE MOMENT OF TRUTH”
In Alcanda Matchmaking, although we are not present during the introduction, we take care of the organization of each introduction between the client and the person that we consider can be “his/her ideal partner” to ensure that it is a safe and pleasant environment, according to the personality of the potential partners.
This is probably the most exciting phase of the entire process when the two of you meet in person for the first time. This introduction allows you to assess if there is the “chemistry” and personal attraction that you are looking for, in addition to the other basic aspects that Alcanda Matchmaking has previously verified for you, in order to decide you would like to continue getting to know each other.
After each introduction, Alcanda Matchmaking follows up on it to convey to both the impressions and the desire to continue, or not. If this was the case, a constructive feed-back would be given to each person and we will move on to the next presentation in a timely manner.
This phase is especially important and we think that it brings great value, both to the Client and the Affiliate, since the Alcanda Matchmaking Consultant, as a mediator, is someone objective who will give an unbiased opinion on the positives and/or negatives of the evening with the objective of being able to improve themselves, not only in a future presentations but for his/her own personal life.
