Reduce Resume Overload: Using a Staffing Service to Help Screen Candidates

Pinnacle All, HR & Recruiting Advice, Management Best Practices Leave a Comment

Even though the economy officially lifted itself from one of the worst recessions in decades more than a year ago, the job market remains stagnant — as you well know, since you undoubtedly continue to receive dozens, if not hundreds, of resumes for each job opening at your company.

Then you and/or your human resources staff must cull through those resumes to find the handful that appear to fit your positions’ skill sets, educational requirements and work history.

Once you’ve discarded the resumes/applications of the obviously unqualified, then you need to go through the remainder to find a handful to bring in for an interview or to call on the phone for a preliminary screening chat.

Pinnacle can help.

We can provide you with pre-employment screening through our Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) service. We can cull through all the resumes you receive for your positions, using the screening criteria you give us. In addition, we’ll vet applicants, checking to see that they’ve done what they say they’ve, received the education they claim to have had, and so on.

Only those resumes who meet your criteria and who pass our vetting process will be sent along to you.

In addition, our RPO can provide an overall recruitment solution to your staffing needs, or provide you parts of it as you need them. We can provide you with sourcing, vetting, pre-interview screening, conduct preliminary interviews, and so on. By doing so, we can take care of as much of your hiring process as you like, or help you with just parts of it, all so you can concentrate on running your company.

If you’re a Winnipeg, Manitoba company, let Pinnacle take that all-too-often overwhelming resume culling and candidate screening task off your already too-full plate (or stuffed-to-the-gills electronic in-basket) with our Recruitment Process Outsourcing service. Contact us today!
