Honestly, like all professions, there are better and worse recruiters. That is why it is so important that we know how to identify which characteristics distinguish them. It will be very useful, especially if we want to choose a selection consultant to conduct our search for candidates.
In this article we help you and warn you about practices that differentiate a good recruiter from one who does not do his job well.
1) Communication with the customer
Right: A good recruiter will talk to you in plain and precise language, and will do so in order to extract the information he needs to do his job. You will try to understand perfectly the market in which you are working and the needs of your customers.
2) Understand the customer’s needs
Right: A good recruiter takes time to understand the key aspects of the position before getting to work hard to find what you’re looking for. Try to delve as much as possible to understand why the position is open, how many people are on the team, how many years the customer has been in the market, what personality traits the HR manager values, etc.
3) Short-term vision vs Long-term vision
Right: A good professional will always work from a long-term perspective. He will spend time building a trusting and transparent relationship with you, focused on finding suitable candidates for the future of your business.
4) Monitoring the process
Right: If the talent seeker keeps you up-to-date on how the search is going and informs you of the obstacles he encounters, you’ve probably chosen the right person.
5) Sending of Resumes
Right: Top recruiters, in addition to submitting candidate resumes, also add their personal views and notes based on interviews to applicants. They thus complement the available information and facilitate the final screening.
6) Informed candidates
Right: A good recruiter will be behind every candidate you propose. You will ensure that you understand all the requirements of the job and are fully prepared. So if your candidates understand what you’re looking for and have knowledge about the company’s culture and expectations, you can be pretty sure the recruiter has done a formidable job.
