Hiring is expensive and time consuming even under ideal conditions. Your HR team has to create job ads, figure out where to place them, and then go through the tedious process of reviewing resumes, interviewing candidates, and deciding who to hire. Meanwhile, the rest of your staff is working twice as hard to cover the empty slot. Once you do choose a candidate, you still have to onboard and train that person. And in the back of your mind, you know you might have to start over if the candidate you selected doesn’t work out.
Hiring engineering staff can be even trickier, especially if there are no engineers on your hiring team. In some ways, engineers speak an entirely different language. And how can you tell if a candidate is any good, if you’re not technically minded yourself?
Fortunately, there is help. Working with a dedicated engineering staffing agency like PEAK takes the pressure off. Here are some things that an engineering staffing agency can do for you.
Find Passive Recruits
Not all engineers are actively looking for a new position. But many are open to changing jobs if it makes sense. We know where engineers spend their time, and how to find those who aren’t necessarily actively job hunting. This can vastly increase the available pool of applicants, allowing us to present you with a short list of highly qualified candidates.
Speak the Language
The language of engineering can sound like gibberish to those who aren’t familiar with it. So how can you be sure that you’re even asking the right questions, let alone measure the responses? We know how to interview engineers and how to gauge what they say.
Check the Qualifications
It can also be tough for non-engineers to know exactly what is required for success. With a deep understanding of the engineering field, we can thoroughly vet each candidate to be sure we’re sending you only the best.
