A software house approached us last year to help find program developers they had spent six months fruitlessly searching for themselves. When we were engaged the company had one month to find the right people or risk missing critical project deadlines. The job specifications were fine, the remuneration offers were reasonable, but the recruitment process needed drastic shortening. We went on-site and managed several key steps: interviewing candidates, conducting technical tests, and letting candidates know the outcome while they were still on the premises. It took us just ten days to identify the right people and all acceptance letters were signed a day later. This particular client now uses us for the majority of their recruitment needs.
