It’s no secret that the demand for top IT talent is skyrocketing right now. The challenge is in finding the supply of qualified professionals to fill that demand. As competition for top talent increases and candidates are beginning to see multiple job offers at once, the thought of recruiting and hiring may be overwhelming.
Whether you’re experiencing rapid growth or natural turnover, at some point you may come to the decision that using a staffing firm is worth the investment to help you recruit the talent you need. If that’s the case, make sure you avoid these top three mistakes many companies make when choosing an IT staffing firm.
We all know technology evolves at astonishingly rapid speeds, and these changes have transformed the staffing industry into something unrecognizable from years past. While it’s not impossible to function without adapting to these industry trends, your best move is to find an IT staffing firm whose experience is complemented by forward thinking progress.
To successfully place a candidate in a new role, factors like company culture, team dynamic, position responsibilities, growth opportunities, and more are key to determining the perfect fit. If you speak with a staffing firm that is only interested in technical requirements and little else, chances are you’ll end up with handfuls of resumes in your inbox that just don’t hit the mark. Ultimately, that’s a waste of your time.
They should prioritize your calls and emails and naturally avoid common points of miscommunication. They’ll communicate effectively regarding schedules and provide timely follow up after interviews. Additionally, the best IT staffing firms are transparent and honest about their recruiting strategies and will be able to answer all your questions.
Ultimately, using an IT staffing may end up being the best business decision you make all year, but only if you find a firm that is a great fit for your company.
