Because we specialize in EMR and HIT, we do know technology jargon. But what sets 1st Solution USA apart from other talent acquisition firms is not how we speak, but how we do business. Take a look at some of the ways we’re different from what you might have come to expect from search firms.
We know technology. No, we can’t set up your network, but we know technology well enough to know how to screen out candidates who look like a fit on paper, but who really are not. We know how to ask the hard questions and sift through the fluff.
We’re highly selective and we respect your time. That’s why we’ll never bombard you with dozens of resumes for one opening, like much of our competition. We’ll send only the top two or three candidates that we know are spot-on for your needs.
We’re relationships-driven. Our concern for your success doesn’t end when the contract is signed. That’s just the beginning of our partnership. Not only do we negotiate on your behalf during the hiring process, but we’re available to you after the deal is done. Call us when you need us. Tell us your concerns and frustrations. We’re in it for the long haul.
We respect your financial needs. That’s why, unlike most health IT recruitment firms, we offer both retained and contingent options for your permanent/salaried positions. In contingent search, you only pay if you hire one of our candidates – so there’s no risk. We can also provide expert, qualified, credentialed, and/or certified contract consultants for your short or long-term projects. You can choose the option that best suits your needs and budget. We believe in choice and peace of mind.
We complement your internal HR department. Are your hiring managers frustrated with your organization’s internal recruiters’ search efforts? Call us. We’ll work with your HR team to offer a more proactive, direct recruiting approach. We’ll focus on utilizing innovative tools, like social media, to find and attract the candidates you won’t find elsewhere. Let HR focus on what they’re good at and let us do what we do best – RECRUIT!
We believe in follow up and follow through. You’ll never wonder about the status of your search. We provide detailed, honest feedback to keep you abreast of the latest developments in our sourcing efforts, whether it’s good or bad news. But we won’t be pests. We promise. We just believe in being straightforward and sincere!
