How do we create brilliant combinations with contractors?

Recruiting, much like creativity itself, is a process. When it comes to connecting with contractor professionals who are the best of the best, our process is the best of the best, too.

Here’s how our process works:
We define your needs: We’ll talk through your project and recommend the best staffing solution to achieve your goals. Our real-world experience lets us quickly grasp your goals, ask smart questions and find the right solution — fast.

We focus our search: We have tens of thousands of active professionals in our national database, but we’ll only recommend the ones that are right for you. Once we define your needs, we start a very thorough, selective search.

We submit our best: We present our top three candidates for your consideration, and you decide if you would like to meet with them in person.

You conduct the interview: You meet our great candidates face-to-face, and we will assist with any follow-up questions and schedule additional meetings, if necessary.

You select a candidate, we take care of the rest: Once you select a candidate, we will take ownership of all HR paperwork, testing and other requirements in order to make the on-boarding process as easy as possible.

We never stop supporting you: Even after we place our contractors, we continue to be an asset to both you and our candidate. Our Account Managers will contact you to gauge your feedback and our candidate’s progress and will help you stay one step ahead of your staffing needs.
