I found that I sent this to Derek some time back...This talent will most likely not be found in AZ and would need to relocate for the duration of the contract. We are open to paying a monthly stipend to help with some of that cost or a higher hourly rate knowing this. I'm interested in learning how you partner with your nationwide team to find this talent. Many would come from the MI area I would assume. We can not guarantee positions after but would probably like to retain if there is an ideal perm role.Location insight from fellow recruiters: There's a recommendation to look into Casa Grande or Maricopa but little inventory, high costs and goes quick. Coolidge won't have much to offer. Sometimes Chandler is the "sweet spot".
