How Donovan & Watkins will help you make your next great hire.

Our best-in-class Talent Acquisition Process has been developed over 30 years in the staffing industry by industry leaders. This multi-step screening process includes initial resume-based screening followed by a thorough vetting in person. In cases where we do not have a local office, we may conduct this vetting by video conferencing or by phone.

We believe in the value of additional layers beyond the basic skill matching process, and our approach incorporates critical determinants of success, including:


Our Business Development and Delivery teams partner throughout the process to ensure clear communication. Our proprietary Job Requirement Scorecards help our team gather all of the key details needed to fully understand a job and thoroughly screen and match candidates to client needs.


Our internal processes ensure our entire team is aware of all open jobs and refers known candidates before going to our database or job boards. This team approach extends across all of our regional branches.


These include a leading provider of web-based testing that covers a wide range of skill sets and industries and a best-in-class screening program that uses a client’s specific job requirement to design a phone-based interview performed and scored by technical experts.


Our vetting process includes thorough reference checking of both references provided by candidates and those that can be obtained through leveraging extensive personal and professional networks.
