Philadelphia has developed a well-earned reputation over the past several years as a major tech hub. This fact, combined with a reasonable cost of living and a wide range of things to do, has made the city highly attractive to engineers. There is no shortage of talent, but there is also no shortage of companies hoping to hire them, from startups to large corporations. A recruiter may be just what you need to find and attract more qualified engineers in Philadelphia. Here’s why.
We Know Engineers
Engineers can be tough to find, especially those who are not actively seeking new employment. At PEAK, we know where they spend their time. We have a variety of contacts across all types of engineering, and we know how to approach and recruit passive engineering contacts.
We Speak Their Language
Engineers share a common techno-speak that can seem nearly indecipherable to those in other fields. In addition, it’s extremely important to evaluate a potential new hire’s technical skills. But if you aren’t an engineer, how can you possibly know what questions to ask or how to interpret the answers? We’ll take care of those details, offering you a short list of candidates who are truly a good fit.
We Understand What They Want
People are individuals, and there is no single one size fits all approach to recruiting engineers. But thanks to our deep connections to the industry, we are aware of general trends. We know the most common reasons for engineers to turn down job offers. And we understand what can make them more likely to accept. It’s not just about salary and benefits, though those are important. It’s also about the sorts of challenges and problem-solving opportunities your company provides, as well as pathways for engineers to explore their individual areas of interest.
We Take the Pressure Off
In this tight labor market, your existing team might be pulling double duty to cover open positions. Your HR team is likely stretched thin. We can provide qualified engineers in Philadelphia to help cover the gaps on a contract basis while managing your entire hiring process to allow your company to focus on doing what it does best.
