Working with a tech staffing agency can be a great way to navigate the hiring process more quickly. These agencies specialize in connecting job seekers with opportunities that align with their skills, interests, and career goals. When working with a staffing agency, you can expect to work closely with a recruiter who will get to know you and your background to match you with similarly aligned companies. They will also provide guidance and support throughout the application and interview process, helping you better prepare for future opportunities.
If you’ve spent time perusing our website or social pages, you’ll see that we describe our approach as personalized. To some, that may be a bit eye-roll-inducing. To others, it may prompt further questions. We sat down with Zoe Mojica, a Concentric recruiter, to learn more about what the Concentric process meant to her and further break down her perspective on hiring.
What would you say that you like most about working at Concentric?
We aim to build long-lasting relationships with our candidates and clients. We don’t just pitch jobs; we dig deeper and find out what our candidates define as “dream” careers. Then, we navigate the path with them to get them there.
Do you have a favorite aspect about working with professionals looking to advance and enhance their careers?
I love being an advocate for job seekers. When someone is thinking about taking the next step in their career, it can be a scary and daunting task to do alone. I can be that coach in their corner. I don’t want to simply find them a job. I want to find them the career path that fits their goals.
Can you walk through what the Concentric process looks like when starting to work with a new candidate?
Absolutely. It starts with a conversation all about the job seeker: their skillset, their job history, their hobbies, and where they want to be professionally. By asking about them as a whole person outside of the professional sphere, we can then find out what matters to them and their lifestyle. From there, we can define what a sustainable career looks like together and what steps to take to help get them there.
Why do you think the Concentric recruiting process has proven so successful?
I think our process is so successful because we listen to what our clients and candidates want, not just what they need. Then we get to work to make the best match possible for all involved.
What do you think is the most challenging part of the job search process?
For job seekers, I think it’s hard to keep a positive momentum through multiple interviews. As a recruiter, the most challenging part can be building substantial trust and getting people to understand that they don’t have to do it on their own to qualify success. Companies like Concentric or our sister agency, Clarity, have teams that will advocate for their interests and advise them when they need. Working with a recruiter can be the best way to get in front of a Hiring Manager because we take you right to them.
Finally, at the end of the day, what is your number one goal when working with candidates?
My biggest goal when working with a candidate is ultimately to fulfill my role as an advocate and an advisor. I want to help job seekers navigate their job search and provide them with opportunities that will help them get to that elusive dream career.
