FAQs by Employers

What is the benefit of a direct-hire placement service?

The key benefit of partnering with a direct-hire staffing agency is the sheer expertise and extensive resources that are brought to the table.

For example, our recruiters have access to a large pool of talented candidates that they consistently engage with to help ensure a fresh pipeline of applicants is available to present for open positions. We continuously research, monitor, and identify key labor market trends crucial to the success of our partnerships with our clients and candidates. Also, we have a dedicated innovation team who are constantly researching and implementing the latest and greatest processes and technologies to source and recruit top talent on the market. Our job is to serve as a valuable resource to our clients and candidates throughout the hiring process - negotiating salaries, providing insights as to what benefits to offer, developing job descriptions, executing compelling job advertisements, and so on.

Overall, direct-hire placement is an effective staffing solution for companies looking to fill their open positions with qualified candidates. By working with a staffing agency, employers can save time and resources while ensuring they find the best fit for their company.

How does the direct-hire process typically work when partnering with a recruiting and staffing firm?

When working with a direct-hire staffing agency, the agency's recruiters will work closely with the employer to understand the job requirements, company culture, and any other factors that are important for the position. The recruiters will then search for and screen candidates that best fit the employer's needs using various methods, including job boards, social media, referrals, and our internal candidate database.

Once potential candidates have been sourced and identified, the recruiters will conduct thorough pre-screening and interviewing to ensure that the candidate is a good fit for the position and the company culture. They will then present the top candidates to the employer for consideration.

What is the staffing agency's role in the direct-hire placement partnership with my company?

The staffing agency's role is to finalize the hiring process once the employer chooses to move forward with a particular applicant, which includes presenting the job offer, discussing wages and advantages, and providing any necessary instruction or orientation. Once your company hires the candidate, they transition from being a candidate represented by Burnett Specialists to a new official team member representing your organization.
