Helping Kansas City’s Top Companies

Advastar has helped top Kansas City and nationwide companies of all shapes and sizes with recruiting, temporary staffing, temp-to-hire staffing and payroll services since 2012.  Our team of dedicated recruiters help make life easier for you when you need to find top passive and active job seekers anywhere in the nation.

How We Help

  • We give you access to a larger candidate pool of qualified candidates on both sides of the state line within the Kansas City metro area and beyond.
  • We provide access to PASSIVE job seekers- these are qualified and gainfully employed candidates who aren’t actively looking for jobs.  These “passive candidates” commonly don’t have their resumes posted, they’re not responding to job ads, etc. Instead Advastar identifies these candidates through our own long-term networking and recruiting processes. Advastar’s passive candidate search capabilities provides a larger, and more qualified talent pool of top local candidates for you and your team
  • How do we find Kansas City’s most qualified candidates?  Advastar’s team of industry specific recruiters and our access to best-in-class technology make us the most valuable recruiting and staffing partner for your team.  We utilize a robust set of resources that differentiates us from others.  Whether you’re in Leawood, Lenexa, Overland Park, Shawnee, Lee’s Summit, North Kansas City, or Liberty we have you covered
