What is your process for finding me a job?
The IT industry is exciting, fast paced and highly rewarding, and that is exactly how you will describe your experience with BridgePoint Technologies. At BridgePoint Technologies, we pride ourselves on hiring the best and brightest talent to work with and support our vital clients’ needs.
The hiring process begins with your Personal Recruiter who will provide a complete analysis of your current professional situation and goals in relation to your search for your next career. This includes an extensive review of your background after we receive your resume through our online resume submission portal. Your Personal Recruiter will give your resume a thorough evaluation and look for an opportunity that fits your objectives and professional experience. The next step will involve a phone call and then proceed to in-person meetings to introduce you to the recruitment team that you will be working with so that we can match you with the right position and organization.
To give you the best potential to show off your technical skills along with your resume, your Personal Recruiter will walk you through the skills assessment process where you will sit down and apply your knowledge and experience in a web based technical assessment to gage where your strengths are in order to find you the right job opportunity.
After we plan and strategize for a submission to an open position, we will work hard to obtain an interview for you. Your Personal Recruiter will prepare you for what to expect based on the position requirements and our experience fulfilling our clients’ needs with top talent.
We are dedicated to the success of each person and committed to providing an exciting and rewarding work environment, top training and educational programs to help you reach your professional goals, opportunities for continued growth and advancement, and highly competitive compensation packages.
How long does it usually take to place candidates?
The average time it takes to find a job is dependent on different variables, including experience, compensation expectations, location, availability, skill set and industry. The ideal time period for contract and contract-to-hire project opportunities is between two (2) and four (4) weeks until project confirmation and placement where some permanent placement opportunities can take four (4) plus weeks due to longer HR processes. Typically within three (3) days of a new job opening BridgePoint Technologies anticipates having you identified and prepared to submit. Once our client receives your resume it takes between one (1) and three (3) days to review your submission and make a decision for next steps. If selected for an interview typically a phone interview will be scheduled with a few days’ notice. Upon successful completion of a phone interview one (1) to two (2) more in-person interviews could be scheduled depending on the hiring manger, which takes approximately one (1) week to complete. When you are offered and accept the job you will be on boarded, a process that takes a minimum of one (1) to five (5) business days pending background, drug screening and notice periods to current employers.
What type of organizations / industries do you place candidates with?
Your Personal Recruiter will work with you to match the right job to your background. With an extensive client list in many industries, this is something we are passionate about and will strive to do for you. Our clientele ranges from leading Financial Services, Healthcare, Legal, Distribution, Property Management, Realty, Non-Profit, and other small to mid-sized organizations nationwide.
What is the dress? What are the typical hours?
