“Hired has been helpful in speeding up the process. The only thing that slows our team down is the speed with which we can put candidates through the process on our side. We’ve got down to about 35 days to hire, from first engagement to acceptance—and we’re hiring for the hardest-to-fill roles with the hardest-to-find skills.”
