We give technology professionals 21 opportunities to fail—meaning that by the time candidates have passed muster with us, they are definitely worth a look.
Our 21-point screening process also gives technology professionals 21 opportunities to succeed. And this is where the magic happens.
One key aspect of our twenty-one point screening process is this: we borrow talent from our own software development team to conduct live over-the-phone technical interviews with all candidates. Unlike most temp services, we aren’t just looking for keywords on resumes. While this may reduce the number of candidates we present to our clients, it increases our quality. That is why a candidate submitted by Stout Systems is always worth interviewing—and our clients know that. Because sometimes a technology professional is better at writing code than writing a resume.
Our customers expect one thing from us: that any candidate we present will be thoroughly vetted. That's why Stout resumes rise to the top of the stack. Which in turn means that you are more likely to succeed in your job search—Michigan and beyond.
When it comes to job opportunities, speed counts. The faster you work with us to complete our process, the faster we can take action regarding opportunities.
SUBMIT YOUR RESUME
We will review every resume within 2 business days. If you are a good match for an open position or contract, we will invite you via email to begin our screening process.
Submitting your resume for review is the first step in engaging with Stout Systems for your job search.
Setting up a profile of your interests and requirements is your second step in engaging with Stout Systems for your job search.
COMPLETE YOUR STOUT PROFILE
You will receive a link to your confidential profile page in an email. It takes 15-20 minutes to complete and will collect both information already on your resume as well as additional information typically not included on a resume (such as salary expectations, ability to travel and more details regarding your skills). This profile is for our internal use only.
If your skills and background match a current job opening, we will conduct a technical interview. This technical interview consists of a series of questions on 1-2 technical topics. The technical interview is normally conducted over the phone, running about 15-30 minutes.
A technical interview is the third step in engaging with Stout Systems for your job search.
Getting your reference contact information on file is another step in engaging with Stout Systems for your job search.
Upon completion of our internal interviews, we request that you send us the names and contact information for your references. Normally, we don’t contact your references until later in the interview process with our clients. In any case, we don’t contact references until you have given us the go-ahead to do so.
PRESENTATION TO OUR CLIENTS
If you are a good match for a position, we will call you to discuss it in detail. This is the point at which we will share all client details with you so that you can decide if you are interested in having your resume submitted. It is our policy not to submit your resume to a company without your permission. Please note that we cannot submit your resume to a company if you have already submitted it to that company recently.
We never present a candidate's resume to a client with his or her express permission.
We support you through the interview process. We can even help you negotiate an offer. That's why Stout Systems is a preferred partner for a job search.
If the company expresses an interest, we will set up your interview in accordance with that company’s standard interview procedures. Even if the company’s process involves more than one interview, we will be with you every step of the way until you receive and accept an offer letter or are put under contract.
