Who We Are
Placing Next Level Talent for Today's Marketplace
Who We Are
Advanced Hires is a growing Milwaukee, Wisconsin based, client-driven talent acquisition and placement firm headquartered in the Third Ward. Our clients range from small companies to Fortune 500 and they keep coming back and referring us. We are uniquely positioned with the best in-class recruiting tools, resources, experience, and passion to find and place next-level talent for today’s marketplace in any professional role, specially IT. Our objective is to earn client trust, repeat business, and referrals by providing highly qualified candidates. At Advanced Hires, our efforts are intense and our recruiting tools are extensive. We provide better results than five Recruiting companies combined. Call us and we can explain how.
Advanced Hires provides DIRECT placements, contracts-to-hire, and project placement services for ANY IT role from Help Desk to the CIO and everything in-between. Advanced Hires also provides DIRECT placement services for many non-IT positions. The Team at Advanced Hires have placed and have overseen thousands of highly successful placements, earning trust and testimonials from clients of all sizes throughout the Midwest from small companies to Fortune 500 Companies. Although we are a full-service staffing company and can recruit on any position, our focus is for permanent IT roles. However, because the IT industry is so competitive and success requires having the best expertise and tools available, we are often asked to recruit on non-IT roles for our clients with great success.
At Advanced Hires, we value trust and repeat business more than earning a quick placement fee. Quality over quantity is our business motto. As a result, we developed ProGoodFit, a proactive screening process that narrows the field to only those who demonstrate a strong commitment to all tasks, projects, and responsibilities and are unlikely to make excuses or blame others. We only refer and place those candidates who are highly likely to succeed in the role AND who are of the mentality/mindset necessary to remain accountable for their actions and take complete ownership in their responsibilities, tasks, and projects.
Although our primary focus is IT, Advanced Hires is a full-service Staffing firm structured to work across all industries for any role. We do recruit in many other areas including Accounting & Financing, Sales, Executive Leadership, Project Management, Marketing, Training, Non-Profit, and many other roles.
Why Advanced Hires?
Why choose Advanced Hires over other reputable talent acquisition, recruiting and placement firms? What makes Advanced Hires different and more capable of delivering more value than other recruiting firms? These are great questions prospective clients, like you, ask us. Although we are not trying to reinvent the wheel, we do offer a clear advantage. Therefore, when it comes to having the best tools, platforms, connections, staff, and more, we have a lot in common with other reputable recruiting/placement firms. We have the best of what they offer, but a LOT more. There is a clear Advanced Hires Advantage. The biggest advantage is RECRUITING BANDWIDTH. Unlike most recruiting firms that have a couple powerful recruiting tools, we have multiple recruiting tools at premium levels. We invest heavily in many very powerful recruiting tools at premium levels. Our highly talented staff utilizes these powerful recruiting tools to identify the very best candidates. We take on fewer clients, but with very intense efforts for the ones we take on. You will get better results with Advanced Hires than multiple Placement Firms added together.
Candidate Submission Ethics: Advanced Hires only submits candidates to our clients who we have ascertained proper qualification, interviewed the candidate, determined a potential fit, disclosed who the client is to the candidate (except for confidential positions), obtained the candidates permission to submit their qualifications to the client, and provide detailed notes about the candidate, along with their resume.
Why work with multiple Recruiting Firms when Advanced Hires can provide better results than several combined?
