Hi Sumanth, I would like to answer your question on Domestic Staffing Vs. US Staffing. Majorly there is no difference except the timings (US Staffing is purely Night Shift Only). I am comparing US Staffing with Domestic Staffing. Pros of US Staffing: Technologies you work are most of the time similar yet there are several niche skills in all the technologies. Work culture would be a bit refined and more of target-oriented (if you get the good client, it is achievable). Salary & Incentives are high compared to Domestic as the transactions are being done in Dollars. Most of the jobs you work are contract jobs only (full-time positions also there but very less US Staffing Companies work on them). Hiring Process is very quick and accurate. Very structured and organized staffing business. Cons of US Staffing: Volatile industry and your performance are purely based on your client’s relationship with the particular staffing agency. You cannot shift to a day shift of US Staffing as most of the transactions are with US Jobs, US Candidates, and US Clients. Only a few activities of US Staffing can be done in day times as MIS, Payroll, Taxation, etc. Most of the US Staffing firms practice Hire & Fire Policy (Staffing company will monitor your performance for 3 months, if nothing happens they tend to talk to you and fire you). Most of the candidates not interested to relocate and try to look for jobs around 30 Kms of two-side travel. Pros of Domestic Staffing: Client/Candidate Interactions are quite possible and able to meet them if possible. You might get a chance to involve in the entire process of recruitment and most of the time you will work on Full-Time Roles where speaking with a candidate will be easy or able to convert the candidates for the job. Day Shift Job which is not against the nature of the Indian Environment. Job security is there and sometimes you will be able to take charge of extra responsibilities. Cons of Domestic Staffing: Hiring process is way too slow (it takes 30 days technically to fill a technical role). Point of Contact at the Client Side doesn’t have 100% knowledge on the job opportunity and decision at every step needs good time or changes regularly. Duplication of Resumes is very very high as the entire recruitment process is not properly streamlined. Salaries are low when it is compared with the experience the Recruiter carries. Similarities of Domestic & US Staffing: Job Boards (Their Algorithms) follow the same logic for sourcing the profile Cooperative Team and the Managers you find in both the industries Technologies are similar in both Domestic and US Staffing yet there are some requirements which you don’t find in Domestic, for example, Registered Nurse in a corporate company who sits within HR Dept and works on Benefits and Leaves wherein Domestic we see those jobs are done by our HR People. As far as my experience is concerned I posted this answer if anything wrong please correct me.
