You know SYSTEMTEC as the Columbia-based IT staffing agency that identifies the most qualified candidates for technology positions.

For nearly a quarter of a century, SYSTEMTEC has delivered on its promise to clients: to deliver candidates suitable not just to positions but to company cultures. Prompted by client needs, SYSTEMTEC has expanded its expertise into a new area, finance and accounting.

Last year, the firm built out its own staff, hiring a past president of the Institute of Managerial Accountants, an accountant with strong connections in the finance field and a wealth of staffing experience.

Tom Kokoska’s familiarity with the mindset of finance and accounting professionals stems from his experience walking in their shoes. He knows that many of the best candidates are not actively seeking new employment, but would be excited to consider a new challenge if the perfect fit presented itself. After years of building a network of employers and employees, his deep well of potential candidates is an asset to employers with staffing needs.

Today’s enterprise-level solutions require technological competencies across disciplines. Finance and accounting today have been revolutionized by the impact of tax software, account management tools, mobile accounting apps and cloud storage. Tech aptitude is a critical skill for finance and accounting professionals in the 21st century.

The labor market for tech-savvy finance and accounting professionals is short on inventory right now. Jobs are plentiful and qualified candidates scarce. For employers in need of a team member who combines competencies in the discipline with the personality traits to succeed in their environment requires the specialized knowledge that Kokoska brings.

Any staffing company can deliver keyword-based résumés at a client. Only a professional with a network of contacts and an understanding of the client’s needs can connect them with vetted, well-matched candidates. Kokoska generally limits the pool to a manageable three or four for most high-level positions, saving the company from wasting time interviewing.

SYSTEMTEC’s relationships with customers speak to its success. Ninety-five percent of its business is executed with existing clients delighted with the service. SYSTEMTEC qualifies candidates based on established criteria that extend beyond their technical knowledge and experience. Taking an in-depth approach to screening for each individual company, it identifies the core attributes that match candidates and employers with the greatest degree of likelihood for success.

SYSTEMTEC was profiled in the 2021 Columbia Regional Business Report Book of Experts.
