What is direct placement?

Direct placement is a solution we provide for candidates in which they would be hired in a full time position with one of our clients. Candidates offered a direct hire position are not an employee at CORE; the candidate goes directly on the client’s payroll. Direct hires are usually ideal for filling permanent roles as opposed to a temporary role. In this arrangement, we charge a one-time fee for finding the right candidate for the position.

What is contract placement?

Contract placement is a placement made on a temporary basis as determined by the respective contract. At CORE, our engineering placement services allow your company to maintain workforce levels and retain available talent while reducing sourcing-related costs. A contract placement is staffing based on the need of your company. This type of placement is essential to manage the cyclical highs and lows of business.

What is Temp-To-Hire?

Temp-To-Hire is a service that CORE provides depending on the needs of the business. It is an arrangement in which a candidate is hired on a temporary basis, with a possibility of turning into a full-time hire. A Temp-To-Hire arrangement is typically ideal for longer-term temporary roles, often between three to six months. This arrangement allows employer to make decision based on their needs and gives flexibility to both employers as well as employees at the end of the temporary period.

What is Temp-To-Staff?

How soon can I start working?

Job availability changes on a daily basis. Once your application process is complete, you will be considered based on your preferences and skills, and you will be offered appropriate positions as they become available.

What is the best way to start working with CORE?

There are several ways to apply with CORE. Start by completing an application online or by calling us directly at our office. You will be asked to provide complete work history information as well as preferences on the type of work and location you are seeking.

What if there are no ideal opportunities for me at this time?

Perfect question! We come across great candidates who are interested in a particular opportunity but sometimes the opportunity doesn’t exist right there and then. We create a portfolio for pools of candidates and directly market candidates with other opportunities that are similar.

What if I am not interested in a certain position when it is offered? Is it acceptable to decline?

It is our passion to provide the best opportunity while reviewing your candidacy for an opening. That being said, not all the job opportunities that are provided are going to meet the expectations you have, and may not fit until you have gone through an interview in-person with the potential employer. You are free to decline the opportunity that was provided to you, and we will take your feedback into consideration as we continue to find the right fit.

How long do assignments last?

Assignments length varies according to our client’s needs. However, it also depends upon your needs. We work to place you in a role that aligns for both you as well as the client. Our recruiters are there to make sure that the opportunities they present to you are always aligned with your career goals, skills and interests.

What if I am placed on an assignment and decided that it is not right for me?

We will always do our best to rectify the situation. You may be requested to stay at an assignment for a period of time until we can find a replacement. We believe in open communication and will continuously work to make it right. Whenever a situation arises please communicate with us and we’ll work together to fix it.

Do you offer internships?

We strive to create new engineering talent.

Our custom client internship programs focus on preparing high school and college-level students for careers in engineering and manufacturing. These programs focus on training students in CAD modeling/industrial design, soft-skills, and leadership development for a period of time before the student starts the “hands-on” portion of their internship with the client. We do this specifically to make sure that we are able to consistently replenish our talent pools with the best and brightest engineers for our clients.
