Get Tech Engineers via Direct Hire or Recruiting Agency? Which Makes the Most Sense?

Finding the right candidate for a position is still more of an art than a science. You may have a stack of resumes which are a great technical fit, but do they match your corporate culture, and will they play well with your existing teams.

The logistics of hiring can be daunting and time-consuming. At Providence Partners, we understand all of the challenges that can come up in the hiring process and we help you prepare and safeguard for anything that might throw a wrench in your short-term or long-term goals or KPIs.

While we work with technology organizations at every level and step of their hiring process, there are a few scenarios where it absolutely makes sense to use a direct hire recruiting agency:

  • When you have short-term or interim staffing needs
  • When your internal team needs more resumes to look at
  • When you’re hiring for executive level (C-Level) positions, or have a specialized skill or talent stack that you’re seeking to hire

Providence Partners makes your hiring process more efficient by introducing tools, technology, and a team of talented people who help you do much of the legwork that tends to slow hiring, especially in its early stages (i.e. collecting and filtering resumes and candidates, screening talent, initial interviews, sorting for technical skills vs. culture and/or experience, etc).

A Recruiting Agency Should Learn Your Company Culture

We pride ourselves and our team at Providence Partners on being able to take a minimum amount of input from a company and, by asking the right questions, distill your company culture and which candidates would be the right fit on a myriad of data points (technical ability, experience, personality, short-term goals, long-term goals, management style preference, etc).

You need a recruiting team who can act as an extension of—or as—your internal recruiting arm. This requires a keen level of observational and interpersonal skills. Our team understands the importance of mirroring who you are as an organization as we filter candidates and find the best fit for each and every position. We act with a level of passion that is attractive to both employers and candidates and have mastered the communication style and skills required to make sure that you’re fully engaged in the hiring process without having to get down in the weeds.

Communication is Key in Smart Direct Hire Recruiting

It is not possible to have a seamless recruiting operation—internal or external—when the proper questions are not being asked, answers being sought out and found, and messaging clearly being expressed. The right person in the right role at the right time can have an exponential effect on productivity, team morale, and overall KPI achievement within your organization.

At Providence Partners, we call that right time, right place, right person trifecta the Gold Zone. We’re interested in using our proven system of data collection, filtering, and candidate management to create a system of communication that makes your hiring decisions efficient and effective. Sometimes this looks like a perfect marriage between Providence Partners and your internal hiring managers. Often, organizations imbue their trust in our team fully and let us deliver on our promises. Every organization and strategy will be slightly different to match your goals. Our promise is that the lines of communication will always stay open and active so that we can meet your hiring goals with quality and speed.
