Our focus is placing candidates and consultants whom we already know or have been referred to us. We’re not headhunters, we don’t advertise on job boards, and we don’t solicit people over social media. We believe it should be the candidate’s idea, not ours, when they are ready for their next career move or project assignment. We want to make sure every placement is a great fit for everyone involved. This approach has earned us trust with our clients and candidates and helped us make many good friends and long lasting relationships in the process.
Atlas Coast specializes exclusively in the temporary and permanent placement of information technology professionals. From time to time we are asked by clients and candidates for assistance in a non-IT search. In these cases we refer the business out to trusted partners who specialize in engineering, marketing, finance and administrative staffing, among others.
Atlas Coast primarily services the West Michigan and Greater Chicago markets. We will also consider positions connected to our existing clients outside of those locations.
Atlas Coast has provided staffing services to over 200 companies since 2002. We have business relationships with customers of every size and across multiple industries. As with candidates, every client is met in person, and every job order is unique. This personal touch ensures we will understand who will fit well into the culture, both personally and technically.
Candidates are referred to us through our existing and ever-expanding network. We are involved in local business and technology events, serve on boards with various organizations, and are actively engaged through social clubs, schools, and churches within the community. We put ourselves in a position to come into contact with people on a regular basis, the outcome of which is a collection of relationships benefitting everyone involved.
Atlas Coast is different. We believe the process starts with the candidate and that it should be the candidate’s idea, not ours, for them to seek new work. Everyone we place is someone we’ve known, met, or personally referred. In order to make a good fit, we need to know the candidate’s story first. It is essential that we learn things such as where they’ve come from, why they’re seeking new work, what they do well, what they want to do, salary situation, location preferences, and career goals.
