business man and woman shake hands across a tableYou’d like to hire a new employee or two – either with specific skills you need or for an upcoming project. However, the time needed to weed through resumes, schedule and conduct interviews, and do necessary background checks is more than you can handle right now. Hiring a new employee is an incredibly important decision, but it’s also a time-consuming endeavor. Fortunately, Contemporaries is a staffing firm in Washington DC area that can work with you through every step of the process. We’ll help you find the best permanent hire for a wide variety of positions from administrative to tech to management and more.

Here are some of the steps to hiring a new employee and how we can help:

Step 1 – Determining what you need in a new hire: Taking the time to determine exactly what you’re looking for in a new employee is essential. Consider areas like skill-set, responsibilities, hours expected to work and compensation. This prevents bringing someone on board who isn’t the right fit. At the beginning of the process, Contemporaries meets with you to ask detailed questions about the unique needs of the position, your company culture, etc.

Step 2 – Drafting a job description and advertising it effectively: Based on what was discussed during Step 1, Contemporaries works with you to draft a well-crafted job description that clearly outlines the position and the necessary qualifications. We’ll then advertise the position strategically to attract experienced talent.

Step 3 – Reviewing resumes and interviewing candidates: Trudging through resumes, scheduling interviews, and conducting multiple interviews takes a lot of time and effort. Contemporaries does the grunt work for you by identifying qualified candidates, screening them and providing you with a short list of people with the right skill set.

Step 4 – Conducting background checks: A background check is an important step that is sometimes overlooked due to time constraints. However, skipping it can result in a costly mistake. We can take care of every step of the background check process, so you can feel confident that there are no potential issues with a new hire.

Everyone wants to hire the best employees possible, but making the wrong choice is costly in terms of both time and money. Finding, interviewing, and hiring well-qualified candidates is the backbone of our business.
