It’s not necessary to pay budget-busting fees for a New York City recruitment company or bury your human resources department in resumes. There’s an easier, faster, and more affordable way to find top NYC talent: Talent Scout.
Talented freelancers flock to New York City, not just for the culture or the pizza, but for the thriving job market that provides plenty of opportunities in a variety of industries. Job openings in New York City’s top industries, including healthcare, finance, professional services, retail, manufacturing, and education, bring talent from diverse backgrounds. It’s a city filled with experienced workers in many fields, such as marketing, IT, and design.
Local independent contractors may have graduated from such prestigious local universities as Columbia University and New York University. They may have experience working for companies like IBM, PepsiCo, and Deloitte. And you don’t need to hire a New York City staffing company to find them.
Talent Scout recruiters have years of experience finding candidates for a variety of openings. Whether you’re a real estate startup in Midtown, a marketing agency in Brooklyn, or a financial services provider in Manhattan, our recruiters can fill openings in the following fields faster than a staffing firm:
Employment agencies take time. Talent Scout can find you independent professionals in just a few days instead of months. That means you can leave early for a weekend in the Hamptons, grab a drink at a Park Avenue rooftop bar, or get lost in the MET instead of waiting to assemble your team.
You’ll also save cash and enjoy a better overall experience with our friendly and experienced recruiters combined with machine learning. And while staffing services often provide contractors hoping for a permanent position, Talent Scout can connect you with experienced freelancers who are willing to work flexible hours.
Talent Scout is quicker than a recruiting agency. Thanks to machine learning and Upwork’s global pool of talent, you can find a qualified professional in three to five days. It’s also more affordable, costing only 25% to 35% of what a staffing firm would charge.
Even at a low cost, Talent Scout can meet your staffing needs better than traditional recruitment agencies. You’ll still get a vetted short list of candidates, as you would with a staffing company. But these candidates will have passed skill certifications that ensure they’re a great fit for the role. And rather than hoping for full-time work, they’ll be experienced with the freelance lifestyle and willing to work flexible hours on temporary projects.
That means you’ll get a list of talent more likely to fit in with your company. Talent Scout just may find you that rare freelancer you weren’t sure existed—the one who can deliver quality work independently while communicating effectively. So skip the temp agency and contact Upwork today. Talent Scout is the only solution you need.
