Is Recruitment Overrated? Whether you’re looking for a job or you’re seeking the next great employee to add to your team, you’re likely exploring all options. Perhaps the approaches you’ve tried in the past haven’t been wholly successful, or maybe your requirements have changed. For whatever reason, you’ve likely given some thought to recruitment. Can recruitment help you to find a role as a jobseeker? Or, as an employer, will recruitment source the ideal candidate to suit your open position?
You might have concerns about this option, too, feeling swayed by some of the recruitment myths you’ve heard. You may even find yourself wondering, “is recruitment overrated?”
No. In fact, recruitment is still as relevant as ever. As an employment solution in Australia and beyond, recruitment agencies are here to stay. But why is recruitment so effective?
Special Relationships with Employers
You may have heard the expression “it’s all about who you know.” Common legend suggests that having an “in” can help you land a job. While being friends with the CEO certainly can’t hurt your chances in getting hired by that company, chances are most of us are not intimate with employers in our field. Networking is always an option, but what if you have no “in?” Are your chances quelled? Not with recruitment.
A recruitment agency has the wonderful benefit of long-term, developed relationships with their clients. These businesses and organisations become well-known by the recruiters, who can take the time to truly understand the employer’s goals, needs, and hiring requirements. For you as a jobseeker, this is a tremendous asset. By working with a recruitment agency in your job search, you’re automatically partnering with someone who has the extra leverage and resources to help you land your dream job. That’s your “in.”
Access to the Top Candidates
As an employer, recruitment is also a proven option to help you obtain the best available talent. Smart candidates with something to offer know that recruitment agents can help place them in ideal roles for their skills and ambition. The opportunities afforded by a recruiter attract top candidates. And that’s why agencies like On Line Recruitment and Labour Hire continuously maintain a database of over 7,000 active, qualified individuals ready to work. In addition, because the leading recruitment agencies offer free services to jobseekers, there is an inherent element of trust and support created. This means that recruiters are working for the good of both employer and candidate, with the goal of finding solutions that are satisfactory to all parties involved. Recruiters work hard for both employer and employee, and that can have amazing results—results which also yield more efficient hiring processes.
The Employment Pros
Even if you believe you can DIY the hiring process (it is possible, after all), recruitment is never overrated. When it comes to finding a job or sourcing the very best candidate on the market, you’re going to have to put in plenty of time, effort, and resources. The process could be a long and tiresome one. Why not outsource your employment needs to the hiring pros? Expert recruiters know the ins and outs of the process and can streamline it in such a way that hiring truly becomes a pleasant experience. Imagine if the job search process was enjoyable? With the right recruitment agency it can be.
