Be Ready to Hire

Posted by Paladin on February 10, 2014

The right candidate could be the first one.

If the person of your dreams proposed marriage, would you turn them down simply because he or she was the first to pop the question?

Of course not.

But, if your company is like most others, you rarely offer a job to the first candidate to walk through the door – even if that candidate is a perfect fit for the position.

Finding the right person for the job requires due diligence – and that means vetting an exhaustive list of job seekers, right?

Not necessarily. Sometimes, the best candidate also is the first one.

While you may read in the news about how the economy isn’t out of the woods yet, the fact is that, within the marketing, digital and communications sectors, competition for top talent is intense. In fact, the unemployment rate for professionals in our field is lower than the national U.S. average.

It all boils down to this: when the first – or second – candidate is a great fit, make that person an offer. Before your competition does.

Move quickly
At Paladin, our promise to you is straightforward: we’ll match your company with the best – and hardest-to-find – candidates on the market.

To ensure that we consistently meet that promise, we place our candidates through an intensive screening and interview process. We conduct in-depth evaluations of their creative and technical skills. We assess their personalities and dive deep into their professional goals and personal ambitions. We double-check their resumes, make specialized reference checks, verify their educational backgrounds and conduct drug screens that meet your specific requirements.

In other words, we put everything in place to enable you to hire quickly.

Why hiring quickly makes sense
Beyond the many advantages of finding a great fit for your team, hiring quickly yields a wide range of business benefits. Among them:

  • Big-time ROI: We understand that, whenever you interview a candidate, you are making a significant investment of your resources. That’s why we introduce you to the best candidates right from the start. As a result, the time you would otherwise waste interviewing less-than-ideal candidates can now be invested in the activities that drive your business.
  • Improved productivity: Every hour that a job remains vacant represents 60 minutes of work not getting done. To help you close that productivity gap, we’ll match you with candidates ready and able to ramp up quickly.
