Finding IT talent for your department or company can be overwhelming. Job postings, going through resumes, interviewing and making the ultimate decision to hire someone is a lot of work. And after that’s all done, you have retention to worry about!
Utilizing IT staffing agencies can take a lot of these tasks off your plate but, how can you make sure you partner with the right staffing vendor? After all, working with the wrong one could cause you more of a headache than doing it yourself in the first place.
With so many IT staffing agencies and sales people calling on you, it’s easy to get confused. “As a result of the confusion, many managers can’t figure out who’s who, asserting all IT staffing agencies are the same. And that is a dangerous and costly mentality” says Jon Dilley, Synergis Account Executive. Jon recommends doing the following to make sure you’re partnering with the right company to fit your needs:
- Get references
- Determining if they specialize in contract or permanent jobs
- Learn their mission statement and company history
- Getting their success rates in certain skills
- Gather pricing information
