Inaugural Graduating Class from National Recruitment Training Center

Unique Intensive Program Trains Recruiters with Real World Experience in Engineering and IT.

Nesco Resource, one of America’s top staffing services firms, announced today the graduation of the inaugural class from its four-month training program, located outside Orlando in Lake Mary, Florida. The program, focused primarily on Engineering and IT services, trains students (typically recent college graduates) for a career in recruiting through an intensive course that combines classroom work with real-world experience. The program then places graduates within the Nesco Resource national network of offices.

“Nesco Resource has over 50 years of experience working in the Engineering and IT space,” said Tim McPherson, President and COO of Nesco Resource. “This training program distills the incredible expertise and experience of this company and trains the next generation for a career in recruiting and other roles within the staffing services industry. The program also helps ensure Nesco’s competitive advantage by building on our past and investing in our future.”

The Nesco National Training Center is unique for its duration and focus. The highly selective four-month program screens candidates for attributes common in successful recruiters and brings them to the National Training Center for four-months of training. The program combines classroom work with hands-on training in live situations. For example, recruiters-in-training learn about matching job requirements with skills and then have the opportunity to work in high-pressure, real world situations to apply that classroom learning.

“The Engineering and IT fields require a trained eye to see through the words on the page to the actual requirements of a job,” said Heath Luikart, Area Vice President Strategic Engagements. “We’re training a generation of recruiters to interpret technical terms and jargon and find the right match between skilled professionals and companies who need top talent.”

Recruiting is expected to grow significantly as companies look to increase their efficiency by better matching their job requirement with skills of candidates. In addition, contingent workforce is a growing trend in the United States. More than 2% of the US workforce today is categorized as contingent, and that figure is growing at a rapid rate (this is compared to over 4% in Europe.) As these trends develop, the recruiting industry is expected to grow significantly. In fact, the need for trained recruiting professionals is already being felt today. The Nesco Resource National Recruiting Training Center is designed to fill this growing need today and in the near future.
