Do your clients provide sponsorship for an H-1 Visa?
It varies. Some of our client companies allow MATRIX to sponsor, but not all. Please check with your MATRIX Associate.
Do you place candidates anywhere in the country?
Yes, we have placed candidates from Seattle to Boston, and everywhere in between. With offices across the country, MATRIX has the capacity to serve our clients staffing needs on a nationwide basis.
Can I change my Account Executive?
The Account Executive is responsible for all MATRIX contract activity with a specific client company. If you have an issue with your Account Executive, please contact your local MATRIX Director in confidence to discuss the situation.
Why should I use MATRIX?
Many firms choose not to advertise their open positions because of the time and expense involved with performing the search. Instead, they engage MATRIX to find qualified candidates for them. You get access to these positions. You leverage the deep relationships we have built with hiring managers over three decades.
Further, we provide information you cannot obtain from an Internet Career site. You can get a detailed perspective on company culture, the working environment, and the position itself prior to going on an interview. The career information on our website can reduce the time you spend on interviews by ensuring you are presented with opportunities that fit your needs.
Finally, you will have a single point of contact at MATRIX (your MATRIX Associate) who will get to know you as an individual. Your job search becomes a team effort — not an individual one.
Is your company publicly owned?
No. MATRIX is a privately-held firm, founded in 1983.
Are you on retainer to any firm?
No. We work on a contingency basis, which means we represent several companies, not just one.
Do you charge a fee?
No. Our fees are fully paid by our client companies.
Do you place candidates moving to other cities?
Yes. A significant percentage of our candidates are relocating to other areas. We can work with you to develop a plan to conduct an out-of-town search with a minimum amount of inconvenience and wasted time.
Can I change my Recruiter?
If you feel that you would like to be reassigned, you may contact your local MATRIX Recruiting Director in confidence to discuss the situation.
How long will it take me to find a job?
It varies. If you have solid experience with a hard-to-find skill set, you could be presented with an offer in a matter of days. Most candidates can expect their job search to last from two to six weeks on average, but it could last longer. Also, higher-level, permanent positions often have longer hiring cycles of 12 weeks or more.
Each client has a different timetable, depending on their sense of urgency. Some clients need to replace an employee who has left or who is leaving and are willing to move very quickly to do this. Other clients may be hiring for a project that does not start for some time; they may take more time interviewing and screening potential candidates.
How often will I hear from you?
Once you begin the search process, you can expect to hear from your MATRIX Associate as opportunities become available. We also encourage you to review our website periodically and to call us if you see a position of interest.
How will we stay in touch?
We have found that most people prefer telephone correspondence. We realize that telephone conversations may be difficult for you at times, so each MATRIX Associate can also correspond with you via e-mail.
Is our relationship exclusive?
No. You are free to work with any firm you desire at any time.
What kind of jobs do you have?
MATRIX focuses exclusively on the IT profession, and we have hundreds of technical and functional positions at all levels. These positions can include PC Support, Network Administration, Network Architecture, Web/Internet related positions, Programmer Analyst, Software Engineer, Systems Analyst, Business Analyst, UNIX Systems Administrator, Database Administrator, Data Architect, Project Leader, Project Manager, IT Manager, Director, VP of Technology, and vendor-related positions.
