Manufacturing Technician, CA, US
Veeco designs, manufactures and markets thin film process equipment that enables high-tech electronic device production and development all over the world.
The main challenge was finding the candidate with the right skills set and level of experience who would also be a good cultural fit to VEECO.
In addition, due to the role being site-based, the successful candidate needed to be within a commutable distance to the manufacturing facility.
We used our broad market knowledge and extensive network in the area to identify relevant candidates to approach. Due to the urgency of this project, we did not wait to have a shortlist before sharing the profiles of potential candidates with the Client. Instead, we sent the candidate profiles over as soon as they were qualified by us.
We approached fifty+ candidates, three candidates were invited for a video call with the Hiring Manager, one candidate went on a site visit and got offered the job.
The chosen candidate came from another semiconductor equipment manufacturing business. He had a very good first interview with the Hiring Managers. Their positive impression of him solidified during the site visit. His positive attitude, motivation and previous experience showed a lot of potential for a great hire.
