Working with a Recruiting Company

If you have experience trying to find the right candidate for an open position at your company, you know the process is one that’s time-consuming and tiresome. The notion of spending weeks wading through stacks of applications and holding interviews can be frustrating, especially if you have other work to do.

But it doesn’t have to be like that. If you choose to work with a recruiting company, they’ll do the heavy lifting and bring the available positions or applicants to you. Isn’t that easier?

How Do Recruiting Companies Work?

A recruiting company is a company that actively seeks out top candidates for open positions across the workforce. Some even specialize in specific fields or industries. Recruiting companies act as a middleman between a company and potential future employees, handling all applications. They’ll pull aside the most qualified applicants and weed out the irrelevant or underqualified resumes.

Plus, having a team dedicated to finding only the best candidates means your HR or hiring teams are free to focus on other work projects. Recruiters simplify and streamline the entire hiring process, and make life easier for companies and prospective employees alike.

And if you’re an individual looking for employment, working with a recruitment company is a smart option, especially if you are looking for positions within specialized industries, like construction or architecture. Having a recruiter on your side takes the pressure off of looking for a job, as they bring all of the relevant job openings directly to you. Then, all you have to do is look through the positions and move forward with the ones that interest you.

If your company doesn’t hire often, a recruiting company may not be necessary. However, if you are hiring at least once a quarter, recruiters can save your company tons of time and money.

How Does A Recruiting Company Differ from A Staffing Firm?

Though they both perform a similar service, recruiting companies and staffing companies are different. Recruiting companies focus more on full-time and higher-level positions, like management or positions requiring specialized skills. Staffing firms, however, typically focus on filling temporary or short-term employment positions. Posts offered through a staffing agency are commonly entry level and don’t require an advanced degree or extensive previous experience.

What Does A Recruiter Do?

In short, recruiters find qualified people for open job positions. They develop and maintain working relationships with companies and individuals, ensuring that their employment needs are always being met. For their clients, they help identify and introduce applicants, and often even assist in the onboarding of candidates, meaning they assist in handling the paperwork part of the hiring process.

Job recruiters often work with past and future applicants, in addition to current ones. Aside from finding candidates, some may also contact previous applicants and clients to ensure they are happy. It’s also not unheard of for recruiters to reach out to a qualified person that’s already employed to inform them about other job opportunities, often with better pay or hours.

Why Work With Diamond Peak Recruiting?

Our services are free to candidates looking for a new job, whether you’re entry-level or a seasoned executive. We can help you through the hiring process and answer your questions, making it a less stressful or daunting experience overall.

We can provide companies with a fast and seamless process that will help you hire the right candidate. Diamond Peak has an internal pre-screening process that acts as a system of checks and balances to ensure candidates align with your open roles. This ensures we only send you candidates that match the skill set, project background, work experience, and salary range, so you won’t have to worry about wading through countless resumes and interviews.

One of the largest pain points for clients in this business is recruiting companies spamming hundreds of resumes hoping that one sticks and they receive a fee. We don’t believe in this type of practice, and have implemented an internal system that unearths red flags through the interview process. We can help ensure that offer letters are signed and that your new employee is there for the first day of work, but we don’t take over your company’s unique onboarding process. Once we get you your new hire, we step back and allow you to take full control so you can get them efficiently integrated into your company.
