The information technology field has yielded yet another new reason for IT contractors to work with IT staffing firms: avoiding an endless parade of job interviews. IT recruiting firms build relationships with their clients that yield a more streamlined job interview and hiring process. With the new trend of IT consultants going on 6, 7, or even 10 interviews before hearing feedback, IT staffing agencies and their streamlined processes have become an even more attractive option.
Why are so many companies requiring a myriad of interviews? Despite growth from the recession, the economy is still not back to full health. This makes hiring managers nervous about investing in new employees who may not even be a good fit. IT recruiting companies provide extra knowledge and experience in the hiring process that speeds up the interview process. Clients, especially repeat clients of IT staffing companies can trust that IT professionals they recommend for jobs have already been vetted extensively. Using good technical recruiters saves a company some energy in the process of filling IT jobs, making only one or two interviews necessary instead of 6 or 7. Of course, this process also benefits IT job candidates. One or two interviews is just as preferable for a hiring manger as they are for an IT consultant, which means both should very seriously consider working with IT headhunters.
