Finding candidates can be tough, especially when hiring rates in the oil and gas industries speed up. A recruiting firm that specializes in placing engineering and other professionals in the oil and gas industry can help you develop and maintain the recruitment and retention “edge” you need.

Here are six reasons you need a specialized recruiter on your side:

Shorten Time to Hire (and Land Better Talent)

Your recruiter can help you streamline the hiring process while improving its rigor. The result: You shorten the time a position stands open, draining your team of resources and productivity. You also increase your chances of being the first to make an offer to a top candidate—and thus being the first to hear “I accept!”

Stand Out to Top Candidates

Recruiters who specialize in the energy industry know who the industry’s outstanding professionals are—and they know how to craft job postings, interview invitations and offer packages that appeal to these star candidates. Your recruiter can help you catch the eye of great candidates.

Attract Candidates Who Best Fit Your Current Team

The top employees in any organization are not only motivated and passionate, they also fit well with the company’s existing culture. They rely on the connection between that culture and their own approach to work to help them thrive. Your recruiter understands the nuances of culture and fit, and can help you find candidates whose goals and approach to work resonate with your team.

Access the Temp or Specialized Help You Need

Recruiting firms also maintain relationships with a deep pool of specialists who work in temporary or contract positions. If you need seasonal help or help with a specific project, contact your staffing firm to find the best people for the job.

Get (and Stay) Competitive

Top candidates don’t always go to the company offering the highest compensation—but they won’t accept any offer that isn’t competitive. Your recruiter knows what a competitive salary and benefits package looks like and can offer a multitude of suggestions for making your compensation offerings more competitive while staying within your staffing budget.

Match Hiring to Long-Term Goals With Strategic Staffing

The best recruiters focus on the long term. They understand the power of each hiring decision to affect your company’s trajectory, and they work to ensure each decision fits into your organization’s long-term vision.
