The decision to specialize in engineering-related industries and jobs is based on our recognized core competency with these highly technical positions and organizations, and deep understanding of what it takes to be successful in these environments
Houston (PRWEB) September 28, 2007 -–
Q4B, a managed recruiting solutions firm specializing in recruitment process outsourcing and on-demand recruiting services, is forecast to be named the leading managed recruiting solutions (MRS) provider by independent industry analysts for engineering-related industries and jobs by the first quarter of 2008.
"The decision to specialize in engineering-related industries and jobs is based on our recognized core competency with these highly technical positions and organizations, and deep understanding of what it takes to be successful in these environments," said Nick Tubach, president and CEO. "Another major consideration is that this market is currently underserved by managed recruiting specialists at a time when there is dramatically increasing demand for talent in these organizations."
This strategic positioning comes after four years of extensive sourcing and recruiting work with engineering-related positions and industries, and developing specific strategies, practices and tools to successfully identify and align candidates and companies in this employment arena.
For example, a leading services corporation in the oil and gas industry recently partnered with Q4B to expand its talent pool of qualified engineers and improve the efficiencies of its in-house recruiting operation. With Q4B managing 150-200 open positions and sourcing/screening over 1,000 viable candidates, this client was able to extend offers to more than 100 highly-qualified individuals in just five months.
According to an August article in the Houston Business Journal, "The major problem with today’s ongoing [oil and gas] industry activity and expansion continues to be a lack of qualified talent." It cited that industry experts don’t predict the personnel shortages to improve anytime soon, due to baby-boomer retirement and a tightening labor market.
Typical engineering industries with hard-to-fill positions (in high demand but short supply) include petroleum, electrical, mechanical, civil, chemical, subsea, manufacturing, telecommunications, and technology (both hardware and software).
"We’ll continue to expertly service a broad range of skill sets with our Managed Recruiting Solutions, particularly mid-level professionals and individual contributor positions in finance, accounting, sales, operations management, program management and human resources," said Steve Goldberg, vice president of Business Development at Q4B. "However, our obvious traction around these technical skill sets will solidify Q4B as the number one MRS provider in engineering-related jobs and industries."
