IT staffing companies and IT consultants often place the burden of making an interview go well on the IT professionals shoulders, not the IT manager’s. However, the best hires occur when managers take on a significant amount of responsibility in interviewing IT contractors for IT jobs. The first step a manager can take is utilizing Technical recruiters. IT staffing firms put a great deal of effort into locating job candidates with great resumes and who perform well in a phone screen. The next step becomes the responsibility of the manager, though. IT headhunters can only provide options to a company. It is up to the company to actively make sure they choose the best of these IT recruiting agencies’ offerings. Information technology is very often a team-driven field, and IT staffing agencies provide candidates who meet this requirement. It is ultimately up to the company’s interviewer to make sure the candidate is a perfect fit for their team, though. While IT recruiting companies can suggest good cultural fits, the only person who can find the best cultural fit is somebody from within the company culture.
