This internal alignment ensures that the recruitment process is targeted and efficient.

Sell

This involves highlighting the benefits of the position, the growth opportunities it offers, and why it stands out in the market. The goal is to ensure that top candidates are motivated to pursue the opportunity

Interview

The interview stage is a dual process where Archon facilitates meetings between the client and the shortlisted candidates. This phase is critical for assessing the mutual fit between the candidate's skills, personality, and career goals, and the client’s needs and company culture. Archon plays a key role in coordinating these interviews, ensuring they are conducted smoothly and efficiently

Placement

Placement

I have had the pleasure of using Archon Staffing for filling my contract positions in the drafting department. Matt has gone above and beyond in meeting my needs. I tell Matt what I am looking for and he get his team busy to meet that need. When the candidate falls short of the mark, Matt adjusts accordingly. When the situation changes on our end, Matt will adjust accordingly, no complaints. Matt stands out is his service after the placement of the employee, he has been there when any need has arisen. Matt is not afraid to have the hard conversations with any employee he places and get them back on track when needed. I enjoy working with Matt and Archon and look forward to working with them in any future staffing needs.

I reached out to Archon about a possible employment opportunity and had such a wonderful experience with the recruiting staff. Rebecca was not just friendly and professional; she also exceeded my expectations and was able to guide me through some employment questions with helpful advice beyond the interview at hand. That dedication to me as an individual really impressed me. Overall, it was a wonderful interview, and I would definitely recommend reaching out to Archon Resources if you are looking for an inviting organization to help with your employment needs.

I had the privilege of working with Mary Grace at Archon. She helped me set reasonable expectations, answered all of my questions, and literally reached out to all of my references within a day or two of me sending her their contact info. Cannot recommend Archon enough.

I had the pleasure of working with Rebecca Shoffstall in my search for a job after being laid off due to COVID.What immediately separates Rebecca and Archon Resources from other recruiting companies is they actually want you to call them. How refreshing is that? What's even more impressive is that they will call you back and want to take the time to get to know you so that they can make sure you are given the best chance for success. In my job search, I submitted applications to at least 30-40 recruiting companies...Archon was the *only* company who contacted me. Most of them did not even send any kind of email response to my applications. Not only was I contacted and had a great initial conversation with Rebecca, but she was also able to quickly schedule an interview.
