The Bay Area, like the rest of the United States, is currently experiencing a hiring crisis, including San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Fremont, and Pleasanton areas. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to what some are calling the Great Resignation, as legions of employees quit their jobs. In a technical field such as engineering, it can be tough to find and attract top talent even at the best of times, so what can you do to fill your positions? Working with a dedicated engineering staffing firm like PEAK may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Here’s why.
Locating Passive Recruits
Even now, not all engineers in the Bay Area are currently looking for a job change. But they may be open to the idea if it makes sense for them. We know where to find top engineers who aren’t necessarily looking for a new job and how to attract them. This opens up a whole new pool of candidates that you wouldn’t have found on your own.
If you aren’t an engineer yourself, you may not fully speak the language. This can make it tough to know what questions to ask and how to assess a candidate’s responses. We speak fluent engineer, and we know what topics to address in an interview.
As you start to move your company forward in the wake of COVID-19, your HR department is probably swamped. They’re trying to keep up with changing rules and regulations, coping with questions and concerns from existing employees, and figuring out how to chart a new path forward. Rather than saddling them with all the challenges of recruiting and hiring new employees, you can turn those tasks over to us.
You might not know yet exactly how many full-time and/or part-time employees you need. The pandemic changed everything, and you are likely still getting your feet underneath you. Working with a staffing agency provides ultimate flexibility, as you can hire people on a contract basis at first, delaying your permanent hiring until you are sure of what you need.
