All of the IT recruiting companies Boston that I have worked for, and all of the IT staffing offices that I’ve been in, have all been set up the same way. First, there is a general “pit” in the middle of the office. This is where the IT recruiters Boston will sit. The openness allows for easy communication – verbal instant messaging you might call it.
A typical day in the IT recruiting world is anything but typical. Technical recruiters might be talking to prospective candidates one minute, setting up an interview the next. Soon after, they may have the opportunity to roll out an offer or break the news that the candidate did not get the job they interviewed for. IT recruiters may have to call one of their current IT contractors with feedback on their job performance or they may have to release them from their assignment.
Because there are so many nuances to the IT recruiting role, so many different scenarios that may arise day in and day out, the open floor also provides another purpose. It allows other IT recruiters MA to hear virtually all other conversations. This proves very beneficial for technical recruiters as it allows them to absorb as many techniques and IT recruiting scenarios as possible.
In some IT staffing offices, there are offices surrounding the “pit” housing salespeople and account managers. The offices allow them with a bit more privacy, mainly so their IT managers don’t hear all of the background chatter. When cold calling a client, every second of the conversation counts. You don’t want to lose credibility if the background noise gives the client the impression you’re in a call center.
In other technical staffing locations, the technical recruiters and IT staffing salespeople sit in the pit together. Just as it’s critical for technical recruiters to hear their peer’s conversations, it’s equally as critical for the salespeople. The conversations can be a teaching tool and/or just another opportunity for others to absorb new techniques and styles.
Another benefit of having technical recruiters and IT staffing Boston salespeople sit together on the floor is simply communication. With any successful placement, the recruiter and salesperson must communicate effectively. An open pit allows for the two sides with this ability – more verbal instant messaging.
