Our Expertise

We don’t do “one size fits all”

Organizations may encounter various obstacles when searching for technical and engineering talent, such as:

Skill gaps: The constantly evolving innovation landscape makes finding candidates with the specific skills required for the job challenging. Even if candidates have experience in a related field, they may still need training to catch up.

High demand for talent: Attracting top talent can be difficult for smaller companies or those without a well-known brand.

Cost: Technical and engineering talent can be expensive, especially for highly skilled or experienced candidates. Competitive salaries, benefits, and other perks may be necessary to retain the best employees.

Location: Technical talent may be scarce in certain areas, while companies in highly competitive markets may face higher costs.

Cultural fit: Besides technical skills, finding candidates who align with the organization’s culture and values can be challenging, particularly in collaborative or team-based environments.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Ensuring a diverse pool of applicants can be complex due to unconscious bias in the hiring process.

To address these challenges, it’s essential to take a strategic approach to finding technical and engineering talent while considering the unique staffing needs of each company. Sterling’s recruiters are experts in their technical field, making us exceptional at recruiting highly specialized talent, especially for hard-to-find skill sets. We don’t just send you a candidate – we match you with talent that will become part of your core team.
