How Connection Can Help You Bridge the IT Talent Gap

Patrick Dja Konan

Information technology has become an indispensable part of our modern society, driving innovation, productivity, and economic growth. As businesses continue to rely heavily on technology for operations, the demand for IT talent remains high. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment in computer and information technology is projected to grow by 11% from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations. Finding IT talent will continue to be a challenging task for many organizations, which is why we will explore how Connection also excels at helping companies across the country find and hire IT professionals.  

Leverage Our IT Expertise

As a national provider of IT solutions, Connection also offers staffing services, specializing in helping organizations across various industries find qualified IT professionals to hire. With a network of talent nationwide and a deep understanding of the IT industry, we offer tailored staffing solutions to meet the unique needs of customers. One of our key strengths is our expertise and knowledge of the IT industry, which enables us to truly understand our customers’ technical requirements and match candidates accordingly.

Get Access to an Extensive Network of IT Professionals

For over 30 years, we have built and maintained a vast talent pool of IT professionals with diverse skillsets ranging from helpdesk, developers, systems administrators, cybersecurity experts—all the way to CIOs. Our thorough screening and interview process ensures that hiring managers only review and interview top qualified candidates, saving time and effort in the hiring process.

Take Advantage of Our Flexible Staffing Solutions

Whether you are looking to hire an individual or build a team for a specific project or your IT department, we have various options for both temporary and long-term IT hiring needs:

  • Contract staffing: Get technical expertise for specific IT projects, backfill, or skill openings, available in 60-, 90-day, or more contracts.
  • Contract-to-hire Staffing: For potential permanent positions, we offer a 90-day contract-to-hire program. After 90 working days, you can hire on for no additional conversion fees. 
  • Direct Hire Placement: We offer two budget-friendly options:
    • 16% conversion fee based off the permanent salary offered, includes a 30-day guarantee. 
    • 18% conversion fee based off the permanent salary offered, includes a 90-day guarantee.
  • Payrolling services: Have you found and identified your own candidate, but do not have the approval or financial opening to hire on to your own payroll? With a small administrative fee, we can contract that person back to you.

Streamlined Hiring Process

As an IT partner, we take pride in delivering a seamless and efficient process for our customers. Our dedicated team of technical recruiters works closely with hiring managers to get a better understanding of both their technical and cultural environment, which enables us to fill openings quickly. Additionally, we ensure constant communication and coordination throughout the hiring process, making it hassle-free for our customers and candidates.

No Upfront Cost or Commitment

One of the benefits of working with us is the ability to review and interview our candidates without paying a fee or signing an agreement upfront. This way, you have the flexibility to expand your pool of applicants, go through your own interview process, and only sign our statement of work when you eventually decide to hire a candidate we’ve presented.
