IT Staffing Agency Basics
The basic purpose of an IT staffing agency is to assist companies in recruiting qualified candidates for open corporate positions. IT staffing agencies also find open positions for job seekers.
If you choose to work with an IT staffing agency, you do not just gain benefits in recruiting and hiring qualified candidates but also benefits for your company as a whole. Most companies do not realize the benefits of recruiting through an IT staffing agency.
In short, IT staffing agencies act as intermediaries between candidates and companies. They allow your company to allocate time and resources elsewhere by eliminating nearly all of the time-consuming hiring process.
When you engage an IT staffing agency, you quickly realize that they are affordable, save your company capital investment and efficiently minimize the time it takes to locate qualified candidates. You also learn that a staffing agency can easily find candidates that turn out to be more than qualified for you open position.
Lots of companies continually supply their workforce gaps by employing part-time, freelance, and temporary workers. The high turnover and replacing these types of employees can be time-consuming and expose a company to a high financial burden.
When you choose to use a staffing agency, you gain the ability to quickly hire employees, interact with a working partner that provides flexible staff sourcing options and reduce the risks associated with the legal obligations you might experience when hiring new employees, yourself.
IT staffing agencies find candidates quickly and efficiently. This is why they are such a benefit and a valuable resource to find employees for your company.
How Does an IT Staffing Agency Find New Employees for Your Company?
- Connect with an IT staffing Agency
Your company locates an IT staffing agency that specializes in recruiting candidates for your line of business and market. The staffing agency will ask you for specific information: wage or salary, position, and expected schedule for hiring.
- Generate Open Position Description
A description of the open position is created for your company. Your company will then tell the IT staffing agency where it wants the open position description advertised: newspaper(s), TV, online, social media, etc. Then, the staffing agency will advertise your open position description.
- Screen Candidates
When candidates apply for your open position, they are screened for qualification and experience. If a candidate meets your minimum qualification and experience standards, they will be scheduled for an interview. After all the interviews are completed, the best qualified candidates are presented to your company.
- Choose a New Employee
After the best qualified candidates are presented to your company, your company interviews them and then chooses the candidate you think best fits your company.
- Common Misunderstandings about IT Staffing Agencies
Most companies think, why should we waste money on expensive fees, employing an IT staffing agency, when it can be done in house? At best, they can only find low quality, minimally qualified candidates who could not find work elsewhere. It is not worth it.
