If you’re looking to find qualified contractors to fill open positions at your business, you don’t need to work with a Chicago recruitment company and wait months for placement. Talent Scout can find you global and local talent at a fraction of the cost, and it’s fast.
Talented freelancers are drawn to Chicago, which is home to large corporations including Boeing, McDonald’s, Motorola, Exelon, and Kraft Heinz. Local job seekers have graduated from top universities, like the University of Chicago and Northwestern University, which have top-ranked programs in marketing, computer science, engineering, finance, and more.
Chicago’s central location provides for a diverse economy with several flourishing industries, including manufacturing and publishing. Chicago has also been called the “candy capital” for its focus on food processing and is a major hub for finance and insurance businesses. That makes Chicago a great source of talent in a variety of fields, including sales and marketing, design and creative, and IT development.
Talent Scout can provide temporary staffing and long-term contract roles with full-time or part-time hours. Our recruiters have years of experience meeting the staffing needs of businesses faster than employment agencies, all while providing a better user experience. Talent Scout can connect you with remote independent professionals from around the world, in addition to Chicago area talent. Our recruiters specialize in the following fields:
Talent Scout is the only staffing solution you need, whether you’re searching for marketing candidates from the Chicagoland area or information technology candidates from around the globe. Talent Scout connects you with experienced independent professionals, not temporary staff searching for full-time Chicago jobs. Our recruiters can meet your hiring needs more efficiently than a traditional recruiting service at a fraction of the price, so you can assemble a team of superstars in Chicago within your budget.
Even leading staffing companies and recruiting firms can take months to find the right candidate for your business. But Talent Scout can deliver independent professionals in marketing, finance, legal, technology, engineering, IT development, and design who are ready to find their next job. You can put together a Chicago team quickly, leaving everyone with more time to walk along North Avenue Beach, grab brunch in Lincoln Park, or go shopping at Water Tower Place.
While recruitment agencies charge fees up to 100% of the contractor’s pay, Talent Scout charges only 25% to 35%. That leaves your company with more cash to spend on other initiatives, all while delivering a short list of vetted and screened candidates, just like a city staffing agency. Furthermore, candidates from Upwork’s talent pool must pass skills certifications tests to be eligible for Talent Scout, so you can rest assured you’ll get a professional who’s ready to hit the ground running.
