Candidate Screening Process

Send us your next job and we'll show you that our resources and response time can't be beat.

For nearly 35 years we've been recruiting talented professionals for our clients. We've built solid relationships with our candidates, most of whom are selectively recruited by us, referred to us, or contact us based on our excellent reputation.


To provide only the best talent, we follow an extensive screening process before presenting candidates:


• Ensure that candidates fit your needs, expectations, and company culture
• Evaluate candidates using our rigorous 4-tier screening process
• Perform reference checks
• Conduct background checks (credit, criminal, DMV, and more) as requested
• Handle all negotiations
• Monitor complete satisfaction

• Social Security verification
• Sexual offender database checks
• HIPAA testing
• DMV report checks

Our Four-Tier Screening Process

To provide the best resources, we use a four-tier process to select, screen, present, and monitor our candidates:


1. Starpoint’s experienced recruiters perform an initial screening before adding candidates to our database and sending them on for further review

2. Trained from a functional and technical perspective, resource managers source, screen and interview candidates. Approved candidates are then forwarded

3. The Account Manager then determines if the candidates would be a solid fit. Starpoint Practice Managers and subject matter experts conduct a final, detailed analysis to ensure the candidate meets the criteria of the client

4. Starpoint will either meet locally with candidates or conduct a video conference interview prior to submitting to the client. To prepare them for an assignment or interview, Starpoint actively supports, mentors, and coaches its candidates


Starpoint is an equal opportunity employer. We successfully partner with certified minority and women-owned businesses (M/WBEs) to share expertise and talent.
