Recruitment Process

Recruiting Practices


The JTR CONSULTING LTD. Human Resources Management team is committed to providing its customers high quality technical professionals in a timely and cost-effective manner. Once a work/task order is placed internally with the HR group, the entire organization is set in motion. JTR CONSULTING LTD. has an extensive database of pre-screened, qualified and available applicants from which to choose. JTR CONSULTING LTD. also utilizes an extensive screening process prior to hiring an employee.

The JTR CONSULTING LTD. Screening Process includes:

Background Checking:

  • References
  • Security Clearances (if required)
  • Credentials
  • Criminal history

Personal Interview to Assess:

  • Attitude and poise
  • Professionalism
  • Motivation
  • Communications Skills

Technical Interviews to Assess:

  • General Skills
  • Specific in-depth expertise
  • Functional Level
  • Management Skills

The screening process includes the use of an assessment form where each interviewer rates the applicant using a grading scale. JTR CONSULTING LTD. also utilizes an online, automated testing service to grade each applicant's specific skill level. Candidates are matched to specific job roles, and only applicants that pass all aspects of the interview are hired.

Staffing Approach

JTR CONSULTING LTD. employs only professional, technical and/or administratively qualified personnel to perform the tasks required on each engagement. Our approach to staffing emphasizes the use of the best match for each job position.


The sources for selecting an applicant are as follows.

Currently Available Employees - In the consulting business a portion of the work force is always available for a new assignment as their current assignment ends. Employees that have the right mix of skills and work experiences are selected first. All selected staffs are then re-interviewed by the engagement personnel for correct fit.

Future Available Staff - Staff who are known to be ending an assignment are scrutinized for skill mix, history of work and availability. This involves career movements of staff and promotions.

Known Qualities - Staff that we have worked with on a project who are known to us, and have applied to JTR CONSULTING LTD. for a permanent position are selected next.

New Employees - Applicants that have been thoroughly interviewed and screened are selected by best fit to each job position. New employees are assigned to work efforts that can be closely monitored by senior personnel until such time that they have demonstrated their competence and efficiency.

JTR CONSULTING LTD. utilizes the following sources for applicants:

  • Applicant database
  • Advertising (local and national)
  • Employee referral bonus program
  • Employment agencies
  • Government programs (State employment and unemployment)
  • Military out placement
  • Corporate out placement
  • Direct mail
  • Electronic Job Search services
  • Campus recruiting
  • Job fairs

Employee Referrals

JTR CONSULTING LTD. offers its staff members a referral bonus for any applicant who passes JTR CONSULTING LTD.'s strict qualification process and is hired. This program encourages employees to submit names of potential new employees. It has been our experience that many of our best technical staff have emerged from this program.


Due to the nature of the data processing industry employees may turnover. Although our attrition rates are far below average in the industry, we would like to retain all staff that we hire. Our recruiters keep in touch with staff that has left, and have had staff return to JTR CONSULTING LTD. for "bridged service" careers.
