QAT Global’s recruiting philosophy is to provide high-quality IT professionals to our clients and adhere to a strict process to ensure that the appropriate consultant is identified for each customer requirement. As an IT Services provider founded and managed by former consultants, the fundamental tenets necessary to ensure client satisfaction, be they public or private sector, consistently remain the same. We have several processes in place to ensure that a candidate meets not only QAT Global’s high expectations, but also meet’s the client’s needs.
Specifically, QAT Global’s recruiting processes and procedures are designed to provide information helpful in determining if a candidate is appropriate for us as well as our client, identify interpersonal skills consistent with our client’s expectations and to verify that their technical aptitude meets all qualification requirements. The ability to hit the ground running with real business expertise can be a significant differentiator and enhancement for the typical QAT Global candidate. The screening process in the determination of best-fit candidates is rigorous. QAT Global uses both standard testing procedures and then, when applicable, Question & Answer specifically authored by QAT Global personnel. Employee referrals are also highly encouraged. Like-minded consultants to those already on staff incrementally reduce any question of possible new contractor risk.
QAT Global’s recruiting team meets each morning to assess the developments of the previous day and determine and delegate action items and priorities accordingly. Upon receipt of a new staffing request, they will initially screen internal employees and contacts and within one business day determine what is defined as “Internal Candidate Status.” Ideally, ICS will provide a resource(s) that hold a background like that which the client seeks.
QAT Global also invests in those databases found to yield the best pool of candidates outside the internal network of the company. Along with those databases most commonly used, QAT Global utilizes a software solution incorporating client, candidate and resume tracking into one relational database. Client management in the system includes profiling, organizational hierarchy, the population of information such as address and contact numbers and the ability to match candidates with related skill sets as requested via the Task Order. We believe that to provide the best possible service we must react quickly, decisively. When Human Resources is forced to step outside ICS, this vehicle provides our recruiters the best odds for finding an experienced IT consultant. The average number of total IT professionals within the database is on average 25,000 plus.
