As we detail on ‘What’s Wrong With Modern Recruiting’, the ‘search and place’, low-bar, keyword-driven recruiting methods drove talent underground. Let’s talk about our methods, beyond our secret sauce of finding candidates nobody else can.

Screening Process

We take employment screening very seriously and when we refer candidates for consideration, you can feel confident they are well qualified. Applicants go through all the processes listed below before they can be placed in a temporary job or referred for consideration for permanent hire. While we strive to meet in person every candidate that we showcase whenever possible, we do perform a video interview at a minimum via ZOOM for every candidate.
