How to Build a Valuable Bench for the Contract Placement Boom w/Andres Rodriguez

The rise in demand for contract candidates is one of the biggest workforce shifts to emerge out of the last 5 years. More companies are opting for fractional employees over the permanent placements. It gives them access to an exceptional talent pool they otherwise couldn’t afford. It allows companies in the start-up phase to advance while staying lean. It gives them short-term expertise to solve a specific problem. 

On the candidate side, many people are looking for these exact opportunities. Maybe it’s a Boomer who isn’t quite ready to walk away from the workforce altogether. Or it’s an entrepreneurial individual who wants freedom and autonomy. As more people reimagine work, they might consider taking the non-permanent placement route. 

This has created a whole new value proposition for well-positioned recruiters, like the team at ace Talent Curators. How do you build relationships in the world of short-term and fractional work? What does it take to succeed on that side of the recruiting business? 

In this episode, president of ace Talent Curators, Andres Rodriguez shares the factors driving contract placements and what makes his team different.
