John Bemis, a New Canaan resident and former president of the NC Rotary Club, is the founder and president of Benchmark IT - the leading technology recruiting and staffing firm based in Stamford, CT. Benchmark IT recently moved their headquarters to newly renovated offices at 2777 Summer Street in Stamford.
“We firmly believe the best way to determine a candidate is the right fit for a position is to meet them in person,” says Bemis. “While the right technical experience and skill set are vital, an individual interview is a more high-touch approach to understanding each candidate's overall fit. The same goes for our clients. We visit them frequently to experience the company culture so we can share the entire picture with an applicant.” Benchmark IT is all about creating to an ideal fit, ensuring each candidate is selectively matched to each client. This produces a minimum of unproductive interviews for all parties involved.
Benchmark IT’s spacious new headquarters include private interview rooms for recruiters to confidentially consult with the dozens of IT professionals they meet on a weekly basis. The space also includes a sizable conference room, open-plan sales floor and dedicated break room.
New offices aren’t the only facelift for Benchmark IT in 2017. The company recently rebranded their identity and launched a robust company website www.bmarkits.com. The site includes an enhanced array of job search features including an all-new online job board, automatic job alerts, real-time chat with recruiters, and social sharing capabilities. “Our goal is to not only make it easy and desirable for qualified candidates to engage with us,” say Bemis, “but also to ensure our clients are presented with the best technology talent in the industry.”
