Visibility and Cost-Effective Recruiting: a Working Recipe for Metro Staffing Services

Since 1993, Metro Staffing has provided employment services to organizations in a variety of industries. They focus on matching the needs of companies with the skill sets of Metro Staffing’s candidate pool. Their biggest challenge has always been to find the highly qualified untapped candidates for each of their partners, so they turned to Work4 to help them navigate the giant talent candidate pool that is Facebook.
