Congratulations! Your organization is growing and you’re looking for permanent staffing solutions. You’re ready to hire a new employee (or maybe a few) and you’re looking at permanent staffing solutions. But with your day-to-day workload, as well as the busy schedules of your current employees, it may feel impossible to devote the time needed for the hiring process. Smaller offices may not have the benefit of a Human Resources Department or may have one or two HR people already dealing with a full plate of responsibilities. For any organization, the process is still time-consuming and lengthy. That’s where Contemporaries can help by assisting you as you take steps to find the best full-time hire.
Every agency wants to hire the best employee possible, but finding the right person for a particular job requires an effective strategy. Since finding, interviewing, and hiring well-qualified candidates is the backbone of our business, Contemporaries has the expertise to find the best fit for the position – and a permanent staffing solution in the Washington DC area. We can help you with the following steps:
Step 1: Creating The Job Description
A well-crafted job description is the key to attracting the right employee. The description needs to clearly define the responsibilities of the position, concisely list the essential qualifications and skills, and convey the company’s culture.
Step 2: Advertising The Job Opening
Once the job description is drafted, it’s time to get the word out. But that doesn’t mean anywhere and everywhere. Based on your industry and niche, it’s important that the job posting is advertised in the right way and in the right place, so you’re attracting skilled talent. Due to our experience working with a wide variety of businesses, Contemporaries knows the most effective way to advertise a job opening that yields optimal results.
Step 3: Resume Review and Candidate Interviews
One of the most time-consuming parts of hiring a new employee is trudging through a mound of resumes, identifying qualified candidates, and conducting interviews. The interview preparation can also be lengthy, as you want to make sure you’re asking the right questions to get a clear idea of a candidate’s skill set. Contemporaries can assist through the entire process to find that one candidate who’s ideal for the job.
Step 4: Employment Screening
At this point, you’ve identified a strong candidate, but you only know as much about them as they’ve told you. It’s important to dig deeper and learn as much as you can about someone who may be representing your agency. Again, this can eat away at your time, so Contemporaries is ready to help through every stage of the screening process and ensure that your chosen candidate is the very best fit.
Hiring a new employee is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when it comes to your workplace. It’s also a time-consuming endeavor where you definitely don’t want to cut corners. Contemporaries can help ease the burden of the hiring process while also finding the most qualified person for the job!
