Job Seekers - Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Does your IT recruiting
firm charge job hunters for any services?
A. Never. Client companies always
pay our fee.
Does your firm treat my profile confidentially?
A. Yes. We will never submit your
resume to any client company without receiving your permission
Does your firm search for known candidates in your database
or from job postings on a Website?
A. Both. We always search our current
database and we evaluate candidates from job postings, too.
We look for the best candidates to fill our clients needs.
Do you make any promises or guarantees to jobseekers?
A. We work to match qualified candidates
with client opportunities but timing is everything. There
are no guarantees that we will have a current opportunity
that matches your career goals, interests and skill set.
Are all recruiting firms alike?
A. No. Differences in operating
practices, specialties and individual style mean no two recruiting
firms operate identically.
If I accept a position through a recruiting firm, will my
compensation be lowered to pay the fee?
A. No. Companies hire search firms
for their services and pay a fee that's calculated on a new
hire's salary but paid completely separately. If a search
firm recommends you, it will have no impact on your final
salary negotiations. If anything, a recruiting firm
can give you information on current pay levels, which will
ensure that you'll receive a competitive offer.
What is a retained executive-search firm?
A. Firms that specialize in finding
top-level candidates exclusively on a retained basis, which
means they receive payments regardless of whether a candidate
is hired. Firms usually receive one-third of the fee up front,
one-third after 30 days and the balance at the end of the
What is a contingency recruiting firm?
A. Search firms place candidates
in mid to senior-level positions. Fees are paid by client
companies on a "contingency" basis or contingent upon the
firm finding a candidate who's hired for the position.
Contingency firms tend to specialize in certain industries
or functions. Next Step Systems is a contingency recruiting
firm specializing in Information Technology (IT) career opportunities.
We are located in the Chicago, IL area and service Illinois
and other U.S. states.
What is an employment or personnel agency?
A. This term is less frequently
used but refers to companies that place lower level or staff
employees in clerical, skilled or semi-skilled openings. These
agencies usually don't specialize by function or industry,
and are paid fees by employers on a contingency basis.
