Recruiting Solutions for Technology-Based Industries
Why we speak of human capital: The root of ‘capital’ is the Latin ‘caput’: head. By using the term ‘capital’ we emphasize the vital importance of people’s minds, hearts, and skills to any undertaking.
We bring to the table a lot of experience for our clients, having filled vacancies for a number of industries and covering a wide variety of functions. Recruiting-specific skills enabled us to achieve a track record that our clients happily confirm.
Our values we live on the job and thus clearly and positively separate from competition, which is supporting our client’s employer brands.
By working intensively and respectfully with our candidates we discovered a substantial need for effective, realistic and affordable consulting that gives you control of your further professional development within one week.

We simplify the recruiting process, using core principles from software development. Agile project management and unified communication make stakeholder interaction easy, speedy, comprehensive, visual, collaborative and super responsive. With our service AGILE-RPO, your hiring team will follow a flexible path on the go, whilst forgetting about frequent e-mails and calls. Hiring managers love it. Integrated analytics measure KPI and ROI.
We do offer to recruit on a retained basis and on a contingency basis, besides our preferred method AGILE-RPO. Those models have advantages for certain projects such as filling C-level roles, temporary limited projects, test projects for new clients and other specific cases. Classic recruiting used to be our bread-and-butter business for almost a decade and we still deliver the same quality as always.
IT-based candidate sourcing is today’s standard. In many cases though, IT-based applicant tracking and data handling consume too much time. To pace ahead, it is vital to make available everchanging candidate information in the cloud, on business platforms and shared storage space. We are using various tools to make sure that you have access to relevant information anytime and offer automated recruiting steps, including automatic video interviews, coding tests, etc..

Solution Focused Career Counseling
Some 80% of professionals do not plan their careers at all, which is staggering! Instead of investing some time and a reasonable amount of money in pro-actively driving their professional development, a vast majority prefers to dedicate the needed resources to e.g. buying a fancy mobile phone.
The result is, that most professionals take part in a virtual career lottery. Whenever an assignment comes to an end, for whichever reason, you will have to make a quick decision regarding a new role at another employer. Very likely, this will lead your career and life in a direction that is not as sustainable and not as profitable as it could be. The .hcs career counseling package is one option to gain control. It has nothing esoteric to it, is sleek and real-life proven. We are applying the solution-focused coaching methodology according to Steve de Shazer to work out opportunities instead of fighting threats.
The .hcs Career Counseling Package:
- Development of a career plan with milestones
- Creation of professional application documents
- Setting up social business profiles
- Advice on strategic networking
- Advice on hiring processes
