Internet Job Postings Explained

We Review Résumés
Often a hiring manager doesn’t have time to review résumés immediately because they are busy with other tasks. You may not want it known that you are looking for engineers for fear of being bombarded with under-qualified résumés to review. It is beneficial for you to have someone knowledgeable in your technology to screen résumés before they get to your desk. It’s our commitment to make sure we send you an engineer with the right qualifications. Unlike many engineering staffing services, job boards or employment agencies Advantage Engineer Staffing will only send you engineers that we have determined will meet your needs.
Before submitting a candidate for your review, Advantage conducts a thorough screening, confirming job history, capability character and technical skill. We test for technical aptitude using technical tests developed for specific areas of engineering. Once a qualified engineer has been evaluated and deemed suitable, we can confidently recommend them to your company. Although we do the preliminary work for you, it is also important for you to have an interview plan. We suggest that you prepare a checklist of questions you will ask each candidate. This step assures that you can more readily compare candidates and that you will be sure to cover all the topics. It is a good idea to include some open-ended questions in order to get better insight into the candidate’s communication skills and how their experience relates to the position. Preliminary telephone interviews can sometimes help decide whether you want to go forward with an in-person interview.
