What Makes for a Successful IT Recruiting Company?

Among many awards and recognition within the IT staffing industry, AVID Technical Resources, a Boston-based contract and permanent IT recruiting company with offices around the US, was recognized as one of Massachusetts’ Largest Temporary Placement Firms for the third consecutive year in 2010.  This accolade was a testament to AVID’s consistent performance as a successful technical recruiting company.

So, what exactly makes for a successful IT recruiting company? Vince Lombardi once said, “The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.”  The noted football figure’s words hold true not only on his successful sports franchise.  These words also apply to what makes a successful IT recruiting company.  A well-defined business model, a clear understanding of client environments, a dedicated search effort, and a relationship-centric team with work ethic & values are the integral pieces that shape success for an IT staffing company.

Similar to a successful sports franchise, a well-defined business model that is inclusive of best practices serves as the basic framework for a successful IT recruiting company.  AVID’s business model has proven to be not only efficient, but also successful.  In an industry saturated with poorly-run IT recruiting companies, AVID takes pride in the operation of its business model and best practices.  At AVID, we consider it our responsibility to fully understand our clients and our candidates, as well as treat others as one would want to be treated in return.  After all, a client’s next IT contract hire through AVID is a reflection on AVID’s business model & practices.

Prior to the start of any competition, a smart team studies the game.  Playing it smart, AVID’s IT staffing Account Managers focus on really getting to know their clients, inside and out.  A day in the life of an IT Account Manager displays the dedication that is put into building strong relationships with managers and understanding clientele environments.  The Account Manager’s effort and hard work pays off by enabling one to function as an expert on the client and their IT staffing needs. This ultimately prohibits any temptation for guesswork, and breaks down any possible barriers in successfully sourcing IT candidates for AVID’s clients.

In a business where scanning technical keywords on a resume is a prevalent search tactic, AVID stands apart from the competition.  AVID’s technical recruiters ensure that clients receive exactly what they are looking for in an IT candidate.  As Michael Dell notes, “The ability to find and hire the right people can make or break your business…No matter where you are in the life cycle of your business, bringing in great talent should always be a top priority.” To this effect, hiring is not something to be taken lightly, as human capital has the ability to make a direct impact on a company’s overall success.

For AVID and for other successful IT recruiting companies, the search effort is led by IT recruiters who are well- informed on the client’s technical and cultural environment, as provided by the Account Managers.   Through submersion within the IT recruiting industry, through awareness of market activity, and through maintaining relationships with a strong network of IT consultants, it is a responsibility of AVID IT recruiters to provide top IT talent discovery, identification, qualification, placement, and follow-up.  In order to generate top-notch talent, AVID IT recruiters understand that the search effort must also be top-notch.  To stay ahead of the competition, AVID technical recruiters don’t just rely on using job boards to source candidates.  They also use  social networking, viral networking, candidate referrals, creative recruiting, and other methods utilized in a day in the life of an IT Recruiter.  AVID’s IT placement success speaks through the numbers as well, as AVID possesses a 90% successful placement ratio, with the lowest contractor attrition rates among IT staffing agencies Boston.

From the tee time through the eighteenth hole, from kickoff through the last quarter, from the top of the first through the bottom of the ninth, from client initiation and requirement receipt to candidate identification and placement, successful IT recruiting companies refuse to concede to the competition without putting forth the highest effort. AVID’s continued success has been evidence of just that.  The hard work, dedication, honesty, integrity, and passion that AVID puts into its recruitment, placement, and retention places it high above competitors the IT recruiting industry.
