Interactive Recruitment Consultants staffs creative digital companies

Technology has changed how business is done – many companies are adopting lean startup principals, non-traditional marketing strategies and cultivating relaxed cultures. Interactive Recruitment Consultants (IRC), an employment agency for creative digital businesses and professionals based in Old City, has adapted the hiring model to meet those needs.

"With our clients, it's really more of a partnership," says Adam Heagy, founder and CEO of IRC. "With everyone we work with, we have several meetings. We're not afraid to give bad news or constructive feedback."

Heagy admits that staffing agencies can have a bad reputation. A client will often meet with an agent once, fill out some paperwork, and wait for the agent to return with an offer. IRC provides a range of custom services to companies and contractors, including digital branding and social media, and assistance with online portfolios. They've even acted as an outsourced human resources department, providing job offer letters and employee orientations.

Before starting IRC, Heagy worked for 15 years at a large staffing agency. In his off hours, he enjoyed finding friends the right job and grew that hobby into a business.

IRC celebrated their first year anniversary with their highest grossing month to date -- $300,000 in April sales. They currently serve fifteen technology companies in the Philadelphia region and have been placing multiple contractors per week. They plan to hire two to four employees over the summer.

"No matter what the economy, or how the market is doing, there's always a strong demand for technical professionals," says Heagy.
