IT & Engineering Client Testimonials

Karen K.

Consultant

"I have known and worked with Digital Staffing (now AllStaff IT & Engineering) for a number of years. In my capacity as a corporate recruiter, I primarily staffed difficult-to-fill positions; and Digital Staffing certainly made my job easier. They are always pleasant and have a good sense of humor; but, most importantly, they are professional and strive to provide the best candidates. Digital Staffing and their staff are technically knowledgeable and I would highly recommend them."

Michelle H.

John C.

Product Specialist

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Digital Staffing (now AllStaff IT & Engineering) for a number of years on short-term contract assignments. We most recently needed someone with a broad background to get us through a backlog and out of three staffing firms we reached out to, they were the only one that responded immediately as well as identified the right technical skills and more importantly the ‘temperament’ of the individual we needed. Over the years, they have always kept in touch, never being intrusive as they respect how busy running IT gets but always being available if needed. A true professional in every aspect of finding the best talent, we would highly recommend Digital Staffing should the need arise."

Hiring The Best Candidates & Sending The Right Message

Hire the Best Candidates &
Send the Right Message

Most everyone would agree that the employment market has taken some dramatic turns over the past 5 years. This year has brought about increased hiring of technology professionals, and has caused increased competition for the best candidates. Take a minute to evaluate your hiring process and ask the question, “Are we efficient, effective and successful when it comes to hiring candidates?” If you answered “no” (or hesitated before answering), it may be time to tweak your hiring program.

In this market, the candidates that are the best of the best are not on the market for long before becoming re-employed or making a career change. Your company’s ability to interview and make decisions in a timely manner will dictate your success in locating and hiring the best candidates. If your hiring process takes weeks, and decisions aren’t made quickly, the best candidates will not wait for you. In addition, when you have decided to extend an offer, put your best foot forward on the offer and minimize the “back and forth” time of negotiation. If the candidate knows that you have made your strongest offer “out of the gate”, there won’t be days or weeks of haggling.

Remember that word travels fast, especially in the employment market where networking is key. Candidates talk to candidates, and if your hiring process is slow, word may spread and hinder your ability to meet the best candidates. On the other hand, if you have an efficient and effective selection process, word of mouth may help you attract the best candidates. Overall, the more streamlined, timely and efficient your hiring process is, the better your overall success rate will be in hiring the best candidates.

Interviewing Mistakes to Avoid

Interviewing Mistakes to Avoid

Bad hiring decisions cost organizations time and money. Conducting productive interviews can increase successful hiring. Here are some mistakes to avoid during the interview process.

Failing to prepare for the interview:

Interviewers need to meet in advance to create a plan. Determine who will be responsible for which types of questions, what aspect of the candidate’s credentials each person is assessing, and who will be responsible for gauging a culture fit.

Only talking during an interview:

A productive interview needs to have components other than questions and answers. Ask a candidate to perform a task to determine their hands-on ability. See how quickly a person can learn a particular task. Ask the candidate to explain an approach to improving a given IT function. Using tests and tasks will give you valuable information for your selection process.

Placing excess emphasis on a candidate’s personality:

Probably one of the hardest hiring mistakes to avoid is evaluating “personality” as heavily as skills and experience. People tend to hire people who are similar to themselves. They are the most comfortable with those candidates, of course. But, the person with the best “personality” may not be the strongest, smartest, and best candidate for the position. You need diverse personalities to deal with diverse employees and customers.
