Case Study

How we won the war for Engineering talent in a tight market.

Search Assignment:
Our client, a medical device manufacturer, had exhausted the local market for Engineers, but the company was growing and needed to hire 9 more Engineers within 6 months in order to launch their new product on time. Not only was there a talent war in the local market, our client had a sky-high bar for talent and rejected 90% of the qualified candidates. Our client chose ShortList because they wanted a constant flow of candidates over 6 months.
