Hiring Organization & Candidate – Reaching the Same Peak
At the beginning of the hiring process, both candidates and hiring organizations are faced with the same daunting challenge, like looking up at a mountain, unsure of the obstacles that lie ahead but needing to reach the summit. The candidate is looking for the ideal company and role while the client is looking for the ideal employee who has the required skills and is a cultural fit. They might be a great match and ultimately have the same peak in mind, but their different perspectives often prevent them getting there.
180 Engineering account managers and recruiters are trained to be excellent Sherpas. Not only do we source candidates that meet our clients’ expectations, we then guide the process making sure expectations are clear on both sides. This insures not wasting time and most importantly, significantly improving the chance of a successful peak.

How do we do this?
Hiring Organization Advisor
180 Engineering serves as a trusted advisor for our hiring organization clients. We present a candidate meeting and exceeding specified requirements and provide accurate market insights that set appropriate expectations and allow the hiring organization to make the best decisions. We provide regular updates on candidate interest and needs and over-communicate during the final offer and offer acceptance stages.
Each step of the journey, we listen to candidates’ needs, career goals and life goals. We are never pushy, but do set clear expectations that clearly outline how the process will work. Interview prepping, debriefing, answering questions and listening to concerns are all critical parts of the process. In the final stages of the interviewing process, we continue to be an advocate, aiding with the negotiation process, answering questions and setting realistic expectations.
