1. Research
We research the industry of the company we are staffing for, interview the hiring managers and the direct supervisors of the department that has the opening, develop a clear job description and create a list of non-negotiable requirements the position demands. This in-depth research will allow us to narrow the search and find qualified candidates for the open position.
2. Sourcing
Once the research is completed, we begin the search stage of the recruiting life cycle. The search may include placing listings online and/or in newspapers, cold calling targeted candidates within our database, and networking within the industry. The goal of the search is to develop a list of top caliber candidates to move forward in the interview process.
3. Interviewing
Once candidates have been identified, we will typically go through interviews. The initial interview is with the recruiter and allows us to verify that the requirements of the position are met. The pool of candidates is narrowed and the best applicants are referred via email to the hiring manager to begin the company’s interview and testing process.
4. Placement
This process is completed after the company (client) has completed all documentation given by United Staffing Agency Inc. Once the company chooses the top applicant, the recruiter’s job is to ensure that the offer made to the applicant is acceptable. This process involves communicating with both the hiring manager and the applicant to be certain that both agree to the terms of salary, benefits (if applicable), job duties and starting dates for employment.
5. Retention
We stay in touch with our newly hired employee after employment begins. We act as a mediator between the new hire and the hiring manager if there are discrepancies between the job description and duties. Contact may be made with the employer and the new hire daily or weekly, and the full recruiting life cycle typically ends once the probationary period for the new hire has passed.
