Companies Use Recruiters for Hiring Speed

Many architecture, building engineering, and construction companies outsource some or all of their job openings to a recruiter. The number one reason for doing so is speed; they want the job filled fast.

The recent findings of a Society for Human Resource Management survey indicate the majority of respondents turned to recruiters because there was a need to hire quickly. The next leading reason to leverage an outside recruiter was to gain access to an agency's talent and recruiting expertise. 

There are great disparities in the speed at which architecture recruiting agencies in Minneapolis / St. Paul can fill positions. AEC Resources' average time-to-hire is currently 18.7 days. This is the time it takes us to fill an open position from the day we receive it. 

You work with a staffing agency and a recruiter to quickly and easily fill open positions, which is why our process emphasizes speed and quality of talent. If you are evaluating temp agencies for architects and engineers, work with a company that focuses on AEC positions only, and reap the rewards of a highly specialized process that delivers great people - fast.

The recruiters at AEC Resources can help you quickly fill the following positions: Architect, Architectural Intern, Project Architect, Project Manager, Drafter, Designer, Drafting Technician, Mechanical Engineer, Structural Engineer, Electrical Engineer, Civil Engineer, Engineer In Training (EIT), CAD/BIM/VDC positions, and many more.
