by | General, Job Hunting, Tech Employment

  • Temporary-to-hire

  • Direct-hire

With the temporary or contract services, the staffing company hires the talent as an employee of the staffing firm and directs the employee to client companies to complete projects and other work. When candidates become employees of the staffing company, they are often provided consultant benefits.

With the direct hire service, the staffing company recruits a candidate for a client company from a wide talent pool by reviewing applications and screenings to find the perfect fit. Once the client company and the candidate are happy with their selections, the client company hires the candidate as a direct employee. After that transaction is complete, the client company pays the staffing firm a placement fee.
