Recruiting Services


Do you have a full time position to fill? Recruiting the right candidate for your organization is tedious and time consuming, taking resources away from your core capabilities. Why spin your wheels writing job descriptions, placing ads, sourcing and interviewing when someone else can do it for you?

Our direct hire recruiting team specializes in Laboratory, Engineering, IT and Executive Level recruiting across many industries including, Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Food & Beverage, Automotive and Chemical, just to name a few.

We will source, screen and pre-interview candidates based on your qualifications. We will then pass only the qualified candidates to you. No more weeding through dozens of random, unqualified resumes. Once you have identified a candidate of interest, our team will also coordinate interview schedules, travel arrangements, paperwork and any other pre-hire related activity on your behalf.

At Cogent, recruiting is at the center of what we do. We can help you find the right candidate, guaranteed!


Are you feeling the crunch of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) talent shortage? Are you looking for more strategic ways to manage the human capital of your organization? Does the thought of hiring and supporting a full time recruiting team tie your stomach (and checkbook) in knots?

If your answer was YES to any of the above questions, you might consider calling Cogent to learn about how our Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) solution may work for you.

What is RPO? As defined by the Human Resources Outsourcing Association (HROA): RPO is – “a form of business process outsourcing (BPO) where an employer transfers all or part of its recruitment processes to an external service provider. An RPO provider can provide its own or may assume the company’s staff, technology, methodologies and reporting. In all cases, RPO differs greatly from providers such as staffing companies and contingent/retained search providers in that it assumes ownership of the design and management of the recruitment process and the responsibility of results.”

As your recruiting partner, Cogent will manage all recruiting staff, technologies, methodologies and reporting parameters on your behalf, freeing your Human Resources team of the constraints of weeding through the recruiting process.


Sometimes your hiring needs do not fit into a “direct hire” or “temporary worker” box. Hiring highly specialized candidates for termed projects can be difficult.

The thought of hiring someone just to terminate their employment 18 months later isn’t appealing to anyone, especially the employee. Hiring a temporary employee to work on a highly sensitive or complex project is equally as unpleasant. As an alternative, call Cogent Professionals for staffing solutions for your important projects. Our employees are not contingent workers. They are full-time, fully benefitted with the technical experience and training needed to support your important projects.

Staffing your project with full time employees, reduces turnover and ensures on-time project completion and data integrity. The average tenure of our Project Services employees is 34 months. When your project is over, there is still work for them to do at Cogent.


There are multiple situations where it makes the most sense to hire a contract employee.  Maybe you are currently seeing an unexpected surge in your business, or you have experienced unforeseen attrition in your workforce.  In our area’s current STEM employment conditions, candidates with specialized proficiencies are in low availability and high demand.  Let our STEM specific, contract, recruiting team support you in your talent acquisition efforts.

Cogent Professionals offers a local alternative in contract staffing solutions in Central Indiana.  Total customer satisfaction is our objective.  We are flexible enough to work out a contract solution specific to your company’s unique staffing needs.  Our temporary employees are sourced and vetted by recruiters with experience in your industry.  When  you partner with Cogent Professionals, you are partnering with an experienced, knowledgeable recruiting staff.  Our recruiting team offers specializations in Life Science, Chemistry, Healthcare and Engineering talent acquisition.
