You’ve probably heard it said that in house recruiting teams are in and agencies are on the out. Don’t believe a word of it. In fact, among savvy companies and corporations that value industry knowledge and the specific benefits of recruiting specialists, the demand for high quality agencies like KDS Staffing is stronger than ever. Job boards and Facebook groups cannot compete with the expertise of a trained professional recruiter. Period. Staffing agencies are still the best path to get to those elusive passive candidates who reside in the top talent pool. The advantages of using an agency like KDS Staffing in today’s marketplace are unmatched.

1. Insider Knowledge

KDS Staffing knows the technology market inside and out. We know who the top players are, and where to find them. We already have established relationships with many of these highly sought after individuals. We know who is available and who might be considering making a move, given the proper incentive. We know what their career aspirations are, what experience and skills they bring to the table, and what the industry standard is for salary and benefits packages, because we maintain a strong presence in our industry.

 2. Valuable Relationships

The passive candidate is not one who responds to advertised jobs, hangs out in Facebook groups or trolls the job boards. They aren’t actively looking to make a change. You may not even know they exist, but we do. These quality producers are often too busy being successful in their current positions to even consider themselves as candidates.

But we know they’re out there, and we diligently maintain these relationships so that when the right opportunity presents itself, we are in a position to reach out and make them an offer that you would otherwise never have the chance to make. We know how to leverage these relationships so that everybody wins; you get access to the kind of quality individual you need to grow and thrive, and our candidate has an opportunity to further their career goals.

3. No Wasted Time

People answering ads for available positions may or may not be qualified to fill them. You won’t know this until after you’ve spent valuable time screening, evaluating, and attempting to match them with an appropriate position. If they are unknown to you, all you have to base your decision on is their resume and what they tell you. By taking advantage of our resources, including large databases and networks developed over decades, you bypass all that effort and potentially wasted time. We do the legwork necessary to only bring you qualified, pre-screened applicants. We know who we are putting in front of you before they ever walk through your doors.

4. Qualified Candidates

The candidates KDS brings to you will not only be pre-screened from a strategic skills perspective but because we take the time to get to know you, they will know what it’s like to work within your walls. We’ll brief them on your mission, benefits, and vision. We will offer insight into the mindset of your company culture, how your managers do business, and what it’s really like to work for you. It takes more than just a bump in salary and benefits to make a true top contender think about making a move. We know you don’t want someone in a key position that’s just in it for the money.

5. Powerful Partnerships

When it comes to filling a key position on short notice, an agency like KDS Staffing is a priceless resource. You may have a sudden, unexpected need to fill a permanent position, or discover a pressing need for a contract project manager. Because of our exclusive networks, we have the power to bring in experienced professionals on short notice to assist you at crucial times and save you time and money you can’t afford to lose.

In today’s competitive marketplace, you really can’t afford not to use a game-changing resource like KDS Staffing. To maximize your company’s efficiency, avoid mis-hires saving valuable time and money, and gain the edge over your competition you must use a recruiter that knows the industry, understands your needs, and has the means to fulfill them.
