Recruiter Role in IT Recruiting

Choosing the right staffing firm

There are different types of staffing firms. Boutique staffing firms specialize in staffing for multiple industries, for example healthcare, legal and IT. IT staffing is just one of the industries they recruit for. Such staffing agencies may not have the expertise or experience in IT staffing as compared to IT staffing agencies. IT staffing agencies focus solely on filling IT vacancies and they can help you find IT candidates faster. To get access to the best IT talent, it is always better to consult an IT staffing firm.

Role of a recruiter

Finding candidates faster

An IT recruiting firm usually has dedicated recruiters for each of the technologies. When they get a request for a candidate for a particular technology, they assign an account manager to that request. The account managers are recruiters who have prior knowledge and experience in recruiting candidates for that technology. Moreover, every recruitment firm usually maintains a pool of pre-screened talent. When they receive a request, they simply try to match the request with one of their existing candidates. This helps companies to get candidates faster.

Minimizes wrong hires

In addition to sourcing candidate faster, a staffing agency can also significantly minimize the chances of wrong hires. Any company can find candidates in online job portals but a recruiter is an expert in screening a candidate. When a recruiter screens a candidate, he not only screens his technical skills but also finds out whether or not the candidate will be a good fit for the company’s work environment. This drastically reduces wrong hires. Companies can be sure that the candidate they are hiring fits not only the technical need but also the culture of the company.

IT recruiting firms help companies spend more time on their business rather than wasting time in posting job requirements, weeding through tons of resumes and conducting a series of unsuccessful interviews before making a final decision. Companies still interview the candidates before making the final hiring decision, but the staffing agency does the first level of interviews thereby saving the company time.
