When you're in the market for a technical staffing specialist, it's important to look for someone who can understand and support the varying needs of your business. Depending on the range of positions you need to fill, you may want to choose a staffing agency based on the size and range of their candidate base. Just as no two engineers are created equally, all staffing firms vary in efficiency, so do your research before deciding on one. To ensure that you get the cream of the crop, find an agency that has strict standards and keeps clear records of the qualifications of their candidates.
If the only information your prospective recruiters can offer are the types of degrees their candidates have, it's probably best to move on to a different agency. A good staffing firm can describe their candidate pool size and capabilities. Just by reading the descriptions of the positions you are trying to fill, they should be able to gauge whether or not they have what you are looking for.
Don't depend fully on the technical staffing agency. Filling your positions should be a collaborative effort between the two, with communication occurring throughout the process.
