Engineering skills are in high demand; at no other time in history has there been such an emphasis on hiring high-quality professionals. Human resource departments are having a hard time getting the people they need as most candidates are now considered “passive”. All is not lost when there are top engineering recruiting firms like EXPECT to help you get the right candidates for company goals and culture.
There are top engineering recruiting firms spread all over the country ready to help connect your company with the best, but how do you go about finding the best firms?
Start with specialized firms
First look for firms that specialize in your industry and your area. A non-specialized firm may not give you the best engineering candidates, as they may not have some information since they are dealing with general positions. They may be very good in looking at some aspects of a candidate, but fail miserably when it comes to technical areas.
Driven by results
Top engineering recruiting firms are not all about money, they are interested in the growth of the industry as a whole, so they will not be doing it just to earn a commission. They will go out of their way to ensure that the candidate they deliver are the best and will add value to your business and engineering specialities as well.
Check the firm’s reputation
Ask for references of recent placements completed. Ask other human resource managers or acquaintances who have used their services and share the experience. Have a look at their LinkedIn and Google Reviews, read the reviews and ratings by the previous customers, both employees and employers. This will help create your own opinion, and then determine whether they are the right firm to partner with.
