Going through the hiring process is stressful. Feeling like you’re sending your resume out into the void daily with no return is mentally exhausting and let’s face it— a bit soul-crushing at times. Perhaps worse may be the sense of hope sparked from six or seven interviews to THEN being turned down without knowing why.
On the flip side, a generic hiring process can lead to repetitive cookie-cutter responses from applicants for hiring managers, making choosing whom to interview feel like finding the needle in the proverbial haystack.
Hiring is time-consuming, but it should be taken seriously. Anyone can fill a job opening with minimum effort. However, finding the right employee who can grow and succeed at a company for the long term and an employer who can build trust with that employee for years to come–that demands something more.
The tech and executive staffing industry is saturated with recruiters who spend most of their day reviewing resumes for keywords. Yet, keywords don’t paint a complete picture. Just because a candidate has (or claimed to) check the decided boxes, it doesn’t automatically mean that they align with the vision of the company that was hiring, leading to an uneven match and low retention.
Concentric’s stance is that recruiting is personal, not transactional, and keyword searches do no good for either party.
How Concentric stands out in staffing
Concentric’s approach to recruiting top-tier professionals for thousands of permanent and temporary IT and tech is rooted in our core belief: Aligning great companies with high-quality talent starts at the relationship level.
Our focus is more than selling a job; it’s about finding the right fit for the goals of all parties.
- We provide a hands-on experience in interviewing and onboarding. Do you need someone to help beef up or update your resume? Confer with about your first-day attire choices? Land that ideal position? We’re here for you.
- We directly connect candidates with decision-makers. Find out where you stand sooner so you can confidently take your next step toward opportunities to excel (and get a job as a bonus).
- If Concentric doesn’t have anything for the professional or client at the time, Concentric will actively search for the right fit for them instead of turning them away.
Need or looking for a position outside of tech? Our sister company, Clarity, is here to help by teaming up with business owners and managers nationwide to connect professionals in the accounting, finance, and marketing industries.
What our process looks like for candidates
The reality of our process is that it changes from person to person. Finding the right cultural fit strengthens team processes, builds healthier companies, and heightens employee retention. If candidates want to peruse job boards or have their resumes scanned for keywords, they’re not coming to us. We also realize the mental toll and emotional exhaustion that can come from the hoop-jumping multiple rounds of interviews invite.
Our recruiters start with an in-person meeting to get to know candidates personally, paying particular attention to the obstacles they’re facing in their current employment and discussing short- and long-term goals and ambitions. What does this look like, exactly? It can be anything from providing interview prep, practice sessions, and even defining those “next five years” if they’re a bit murky—the entire job search, with all the personal experiences— at no cost to the candidate. Then, they follow up as friendly faces at the first job interview and first day.
Concentric’s core goal is to build mutually beneficial connections between companies and candidates so that all parties can grow toward sustainable success in whatever form that takes. We further strive to invite and engage more individuals into the Concentric community, setting them up for hiring and career advancement in the information and technology spaces through transparent conversations and trusted referrals.
