Your Baltimore staffing agency alternative

An important border city and gateway to the nation, Baltimore played a key role in the East Coast’s inspiring history. Shaped by forward-thinking inventors and innovators, the bustling Baltimore ports remain influential to this day.

Built on a foundation of manufacturing, the sector is still a substantial economic driver in the Baltimore area. Manufacturing companies in computers and electronics, food and agribusiness, energy and utilities, as well as aerospace and defense are some of the largest employers in the state.

Major businesses located in Baltimore include Constellation Energy, Cowan Systems, Under Armour, and jewelry giant Pandora with regional headquarters in Baltimore and the logistics center in Columbia. Lockheed Martin in Bethesda and General Dynamics Mission Systems in Fairfax are also power players in the area.

Maryland offers lucrative advantages to startups, mid-size businesses, and large corporations that set up shop, relocate, or expand job opportunities within the state’s borders. Competitive incentive programs, a highly skilled workforce, and a diverse culture make Baltimore a prime area for growth.

In fact, Baltimore recently earned a top 20 position on the list of up-and-coming cities for tech growth. OpenText (cloud-based information management solutions), Parsons Corporation (IT security), and Novetta (analytics) are only a few of the ambitious companies driving Baltimore’s tech boom.

A nationally recognized epicenter for medical research, the healthcare, biopharma, and bioscience industries are thriving sectors in the Baltimore area. Home to two of the nation’s leading teaching and advanced medical treatment hospitals—Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland Medical Center—Baltimore is an incubator of intellectual workforce talent.

Nicknamed “Charm City, Baltimore has captivated the country with its growth and reputation as a community of collaboration. Is your business prepared to take advantage of the growing economic opportunities?

Have you already noticed an increase in competition for top talent? When you do a job search in the local area, do you realize your competitors are out there looking for the same skill sets you need? It’s time to partner with Talent Scout.

What types of talent can I find on Talent Scout?

Millions of independent contractors from across the globe currently use Upwork to connect with clients. Our recruiting team has access to this worldwide network of experienced freelance talent.

And because our recruiters are in tune with current job market demands, they are poised to connect you with pre-vetted in-demand professionals in IT, software, marketing, creative, and design.

IT and Software Engineering

Currently, Maryland boasts the country’s largest IT security employee population. And, with one of the nation’s largest redevelopment projects underway, the waterfront community of Port Covington is predicted to position the Baltimore area as a leading hub for the cybersecurity industry.

This means Baltimore’s information technology sector is an extremely competitive field. Big corporations pay big bucks for DevOps engineers, full-stack developers, computer systems analysts, and IT security specialists. Even established temporary staffing agencies need up to four weeks to find the right candidates. With Talent Scout, you have the benefit of a massive global network. Thanks to Upwork’s solid reputation for helping independent business owners connect with top-notch companies, our network is filled with quality tech experts ready to take on your project.

It’s quite possible your Talent Scout recruiter will connect you with IT professionals with companies such as U.S. Cyber Command, National Institute of Standards and Technology, or Defense Information Systems Agency on their resume.

Marketing

Social media, SEO, content marketing, and email drip campaigns have changed the marketing landscape. Today, successful marketing professionals need a more tech-oriented touch. A partnership with Talent Scout guarantees you’ll have access to the best and brightest talent. As a Baltimore staffing agency alternative, Talent Scout connects clients with freelance social media marketers, SEO specialists, and e-commerce content specialists. 

You may find yourself collaborating with former freelance account managers from great companies like Merkle, Prometric Testing, or OneMain Financial.

Design and Creative

Do you need a part-time copywriter for monthly blogging assignments? Maybe you have an open position for a project-based contractor with web development skills? Even if you need a UX/UI designer for a long-term assignment, Talent Scout can find a perfect fit.

During your initial consultation, your Talent Scout recruiter will take the time to get a clear idea of the project’s scope and the skill sets you need. Industry experience and insight, plus a huge base of both local and global talent, help our recruiting firm move quickly and efficiently.

Use Talent Scout to find a freelancer

Baltimore is a burgeoning city overflowing with talented professionals. In a highly competitive job market, one open position can receive hundreds of resumes. This can overload office management or a human resources department.
