Hire Top Data and Analytics Talent

  • Are you finding candidates that look amazing on paper only to find that they lack the technical and interpersonal skills required for the job?

  • Uncertainty around best approaches for candidate sourcing, interviewing, and screening in a competitive hiring environment?

  • Confused about the technical jargon within the data and analytics landscape?

  • Lacking a comprehensive and proven screening process that ensures high-quality candidates are selected?

As organizations increase their data they need to hire resources that are well versed in analyzing data for business decisions. The increased demand for Data Architects and Analysts has outpaced the supply. Today many resources carry the title of “Analyst” or “Data Scientist” without all the skill sets necessary to effectively do this job. It is increasingly difficult for Recruiting departments, or placement firms, to distinguish between a fully qualified candidate and a resource who simply interviews well. The result is too many interviews with qualified resources that take up lots of time with high-level decision makers within your organization.

While not exact, the U.S. Department of Labor’s estimate is simple – the average cost of a bad hiring decision is at least 30 percent of the individual’s first-year expected earnings. If you take an employee with an annual income of $50,000, the cost to the organization can be $15,000!
