DriveStaff is a Search Firm. Our Recruiters are paid to find talented IT professionals for the employers who hire us. The employers pay our fees, never the candidates.

Job seekers should only pay fees for structured professional advice on where to find great jobs, and how to land them, to job search coaches and outplacement services. DriveStaff does not charge any fees to job seekers.

Our Guarantee

We guarantee thorough vetting of every candidate before sending their resume to you. We guarantee honest feedback from the marketplace about your position. We offer a 30 day, 100% replacement guarantee on every candidate to ensure they have the skills they represent while interviewing. We also guarantee detailed reference checks on every placed candidate to further ensure you are getting the skilled individual you need.

Our Fees

Curious Job Seekers: Yes, fees are a “percentage” of salary, but it does not come out of the salary, it is simply calculated from the base salary number; paid separately.

The fee schedule below is here for the benefit of employers who need our services. We believe in complete transparency, to both our candidates and our employer clients, so these are our fees. It’s important to note that when you hire a headhunter, you are paying for their network and their ability to access and deliver the best people.

Different headhunters bring you different networks, and therefore charge different fees. If the success of your company depends on the quality of your people, then working with the right recruiting firm is essential.

We can give your jobs more coverage than any other single recruiting firm due to our network. Take a look!

We have an immediate network of more than 39,000 local IT professionals, and we are members of a national network of more than 350 elite recruiting firms employing 1,000+ recruiters. That gives us access to a shared database of more than 2.5 Million people AND the recruiters who have those relationships!

We Recruit AND Post for you.

Your company name will not be revealed in any of our postings, and we will make your position available on: 

  • DriveStaff.com – Our Hot Jobs List and weekly RSS email
  • Our Independent Job Board which is national, and well advertised
  • The Career Pages of more than 350 individual search firms 
  • More than 1,000 other job search sites, both paid and non-paid
  • A majority of the Job Club message boards in Chicago who will actively promote your job! (Chicago ranks #2 in most Job Clubs in the nation!)

All of that before our talented recruiting team even picks up the phone! Nobody can give you the same coverage that DriveStaff can!

We offer 3 service options:

Even at our lowest level, your role will get more coverage than any other single recruiting firm can offer due to our network.

Our fees are contingent on success, so you pay nothing unless we fill your job.

Looking for a Wisconsin company called Drive Staff for employment verification, references, W2 info, or other? That is NOT us. Their name has a space between "Drive" and "Staff", where as ours is one word. They do not have a web presence, we suspect, to avoid your calls. We encourage you to investigate further and question them about it. We are a technology recruiting firm with ONE location in IL, since 2002.

How does this board work?

The “Featured” jobs are owned by DriveStaff. The others are from DriveStaff’s partners. Your resume will go directly to the firm posting the job. DriveStaff can only control our own response times, but if you apply to a “Featured” job and you don’t hear from DriveStaff within 48 hours, that means your resume may not be ATS compatible so please follow up with us via email so you don't miss out on the position. Thanks!
