In a hot job market the standard Agency recruiting model is fundamentally flawed. In most cases, a company hires multiple recruiting agencies to work on pure contingency. The agencies have only a basic understanding of the role and the company, and if the position is difficult or not filled quickly, they quickly move on to easier jobs. The resumes that do come in are often unfiltered and unscreened. The agency, which is meant to serve as the mediator, the go-between, is simply incentivized to close the deal at all costs. At the end of the process, the hiring manager and the candidate are often left with a bad taste.
The Mindcircuit Difference
Mindcircuit takes a different approach to Agency recruiting. We keep to our focus areas and recruit what we know. We work with clients who are looking for a partnership, not a horse race. Our technical consultants speak with your hiring managers to make sure we understand the requirements and can also get candidates excited about your career opportunity and your company. We do not “oversell” candidates.
Our goal for our clients is to find candidates worth talking to. Our goal for candidates is to find them their next great career opportunity. More than 70% of submitted candidates are selected for interviews.
- Specialized hiring for complex, critical, or particularly challenging roles
- Candidates are vetted by a SME and submitted with detailed interview notes
- Fees range from 20 to 25 percent depending on scope and complexity of requirements
- Retained or contingent, exclusive or non-exclusive
