iCST conducts a rigorous recruiting and screening process, checking references, degrees, certifications, and verifying past employment. Technical screening is frequently handled by iCST personnel with similar background and expertise. The process includes:
- Reference and employment checks
Applicants complete a detailed, formal questionnaire, including references. These can be submitted to you upon request.
- Skill set determination
Our in-house technical recruiters and software developers have diverse technical skills, so appropriate teams are formed to conduct interviews of each candidate.
- Contractor search
We use many techniques to locate and contact the best IT contractors available. These include referrals, Internet postings, networking, attending user group meetings and job fairs.
- Technical skills matching
When we receive a requirement from a client, we schedule a conference call with the hiring manager to explore your exact requirements. A summary of this conversation is sent to your hiring manager to double-check that we correctly understand your requirements. Upon approval, we search our databases to identify qualified candidates. Suitable candidates then undergo a thorough in-person and/or phone interview. Our technical recruiter gauges the applicant’s technical abilities, experience on similar projects, and overall business cultural fit to meet the client’s requirements.
- Interpersonal skills screening
We also screen candidates for the quality of their interpersonal skills based on the client’s stated requirements, our knowledge of the client and our own standards for communications, etiquette and demeanor.
Our primary objective is making sure you achieve your goals –
to successfully complete your IT projects, on time and within budget.
