Finding a Great Recruiting Agency – Is like a Blind Date

Breaking Down the Recruiting Stereotype

Finding a great staffing agency to partner with when hiring for those “tough to fill” roles can be a bit like blind dating- you’re never sure what you are going to get. One seldom finds a perfect match on the first, second or even third try. To the point, the vast majority of our clients have had less than satisfying experiences with recruiting agencies, prior to trying us. A few have even given up and completely written off using a staffing agency all together. Since they have seen everything from unresponsive service, to low quality pre-introduction screening and even questionable business practices and ethical actions. As you can imagine, we have an uphill battle when it comes to stereotypes in our first interaction with a new client. We get it and we are on a mission to change the mentality of what an experience can turn out to be to promoting what it should be- a true partnership that benefits both parties.

My firm, anchored by 4 partners with over 100 years combined recruiting experience in IT, engineering and manufacturing, is truly different. We’ve carved out a niche of incredibly loyal clients that we are proud to call our staffing partners. We have become part of their team. Together we have created an enjoyable, efficient and professional staffing agency experience.

How have we been able to do this, over and over again?

We ask probing questions that go beyond a job description. We get to the heart of our client’s staffing challenge. We pay attention to quality. Our candidates are well vetted for qualifications, interests, motivations, and compensation prior to introduction. We are incredibly responsive, with the ability to quickly pivot onto challenging assignments, generally making qualified introductions in a week or less.

We do this internally as a team

Does this sound a little different from your previous agency experience? I’m not surprised if your answer is yes. Our partners and support staff are true staffing professionals firmly rooted in staffing and the Kane Partners team. Each one of my partners has been providing great recruiting services to their customers since the 80’s. Together we have weathered various job markets and continually change with the time. In short they can be described as: talented, professional and ethical. I proudly stand by them and am grateful for their support and loyalty to the Kane vision.

We have contacts in most sectors and chances are we have filled roles very similar to the one you are now staffing- challenges and all.

What does this all mean when finding the right staffing agency?

The perfect fit is out there, you just have to keep looking. But if you are seeking an engineering recruiter / engineering headhunter (also known as “headhunters”, remember we are from the 80s) or an IT recruiter / IT headhunter – we invite you to talk to us! We may be just what you are looking for in a recruiting agency.

I am proud of our track record of quality and timely service and promise you Kane Partners will generally get more done, more quickly than the experience you’ve had in the past. We’ll also deliver that service to you in a friendly, accessible and professional manner.
