Looking for a DBA or IT applications administrator? We can do that. Need a field engineer for a specific project? We’ve got you covered.

Why The Passive Candidate?

The passive candidate is the person already gainfully employed, and satisfied with their current position. KDS Staffing specializes in recruiting these successful professionals. Why go after the passive candidate, the one not actively seeking to change jobs? Simply stated, the numbers tell the story. According to the Department of Labor, passive candidates make up 84% of the potential workforce. That makes them hard to ignore. Passive candidates have already proven their value to an employer. That makes it foolish to ignore them.

Passive candidates are not always as passive as they seem. Most successful professionals are still willing to entertain a better offer, if it is attractive enough. Believe it or not, compensation isn’t always the deciding factor. If a firm can offer greater responsibility, more autonomy, or a clear path to advancement along with an increase in pay or benefits, chances are you can get the passive candidate’s attention. That’s where KDS Staffing comes in. We know how to approach, interview, qualify and secure outstanding passive candidates.
