You can employ one of our contract professionals for your project. With
most computer-related and other technical fields represented, we can work
with your people to complete your project on time.
To use this service, simply give us a call or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Either way, contact Wayne Menke, the person in charge of this service.
Wayne will help you refine your requirements based on the technologies
involved and the availability of personnel. Some of the specifications
we encourage you to include when you make a request:
We will recruit qualified candidates based on our experience in the technical
communications field. That’s why we specialize in both electronic and paper-based
technical communications: we know what to look for in applicants. For more
information about our qualifications in this field, go to About
Types of hardware and software to be documented. Is the candidate
required to have experience documenting your type of system?
Years of experience or scholastic degree required. Do you need someone
you can train or an experienced pro?
Location requirements. Where will the work be performed? Keep in
mind that many highly qualified candidates prefer to work from home, saving
you overhead expenses.
Length of contract. Can all of the work be accomplished in the time
you have allotted? How will you handle contract extensions?
Budget guidelines. Given the length of the contract and the likely
hourly rate, is the budget adequate? Can the project be modified to fit
the available budget?
Next, you review the resumes we have compiled specifically for your
project and the hourly rates associated with each candidate. If you find
a talent match within your budget, contact us immediately to arrange an
interview with the candidate.
Finally, you interview and select the candidate(s). At this point you
should call us again to arrange a start date and time and finalize the
arrangements necessary (we’ll handle the pleasant chores like signing the
contracts and making sure we’ll get paid on time!)
What is the Billing Rate?
The contract billing rate is typically charged on an hourly basis and is
paid from your company to Mendem Concord. This begins after the contract
employee has worked a week or so and submits a time sheet to you (our client)
for signature. By signing, you verify that the employee worked on your
project, as agreed, for the hours specified on the time sheet. If you have
requested overtime effort, it will be reflected on the time sheet.
Then we’ll periodically send you an invoice for the services our personnel
render on your behalf and with your explicit approval (as evidenced by
your signature). The invoice must be paid within the time specified on
it and to which you have previously agreed. The amount you pay is deductible
as a business expense. You have no responsibility to perform the typical
payroll functions, such as withholding of taxes and provision of benefits,
because we handle all of that.
The billing rate, then, represents the wages paid to the employee, all
required withholding amounts for taxes, insurance and benefits, plus our
costs and profits. We work hard to keep all of these expenses as low as
possible so that you pay no more than necessary for top quality personnel.
That’s our competitive edge!
In addition to our experience, we are backed by some major previous
customers (go to Clients). Feel free to ask
us for references and evidence of our status as a corporate citizen. We
also hold the necessary insurance policies to protect our clients.
What if I Need to Change or Halt the Project?
One of the most compelling advantages to using agency-supplied contract
personnel today is flexibility. If your needs change after the project
has begun, contact us. If, for example, you need to add more personnel,
we can quickly provide the additional resources without your having to
hire and train (thus delaying completion). If you need to halt work on
the project, contact us to arrange termination of services. There are no
penalties for this flexibility as long as appropriate advance notice is
What if I Want to Hire the Contractor?
The contract employee works for Mendem Concord. If you decide you would
like to hire the person, contact us to arrange the transfer. Of course,
such hirings are typically covered by a Right-to-Hire clause in our contract
and require the payment of a recruiting fee to Mendem Concord. We pledge
always to work in the best interest of our clients and employees and will
not deny a transfer if it is best for all parties. Naturally, the final
decision to accept or reject such a transfer is up to the employee and
will likely be based on the job offered, salary, and future potential for
