Direct Hire Placement Services

PACE will help you shorten and streamline your full-time job search by focusing your attention on that job that is that “just right fit” for you.  A job that checks every box to become the life changer you’re looking for. 

Temp-to-Hire Work Auditions

Not quite sure the job you’re considering is the “just right fit” for you?  Here’s your chance to test drive a job before you say the final “I dos.”  The temp to hire audition is one of our most popular ways to put people to work quickly while taking advantage of a “try before you buy” decision making model.  

Temporary or Contract Staffing

If you have solid skills and work experience and want to go to work now, temporary or contract staffing is often the right solution.  You’ll get exposed to new work environments, but more importantly you get to decide when, where and how you want to go to work.

And just what makes PACE Different?

Our differences start in all those places where traditional staffing agency practices fall short. When something is considered the norm but doesn't make sense, you won't find it here. We learned long ago that to really make a difference we had to do things differently!

recruiting and temporary staffing agency

There’s lots of things we do (or don’t do) that makes us different.  And our differences have yielded big pay offs. PACE is consistently ranked in the top 2% of staffing agencies nationwide!    

Here’s just a few of the areas where you’ll experience the difference…

  • All recruiting fees are are quoted up front and fixed for the life of the recruit. No more big ticket search fees with dicey guarantees.
 
  • All PACE services include built in guarantees and payment terms. We make it easy for employers to choose us to be their staffing partner. 
 
  •  Our RESULTS FOCUSED hiring model is typically reserved for Executive Search, but its our go to – delivering a HUGE value to who and how you hire    
  • In our world we call a temp is a temp, not a contractor or a consultant just so we can raise our bill rates. Ask about our very transparent and direct cost pricing model that is anything but the norm.     
 
  • Our candidate referrals aren’t just rehashed resumes with a cover.  All PACE referrals come with comprehensive packets of information to help you make the right hiring decision.
