Job boards are everywhere online. LinkedIn has become a popular place for recruiting new talent. And there’s always the old standby: the print ad. If you’re an Australian business, you have probably dealt with one of these approaches for advertising open positions with your organisation. But more than likely, you also found these methods overwhelming, frustrating, or downright negative.
Why? Unfortunately, there is no system in place to sift through the multiple applications and correspondences to narrow down the truly appropriate candidates. In fact, these DIY hiring approaches are often more trouble than they’re worth.
This is one reason (of many) that more and more companies are choosing to utilise professional, experienced recruitment agencies to help fill their open roles.
Recruiters offer a great deal of benefits to employers. Should you decide to continue the DIY route, here’s 5 secrets of top recruiters. However, for the best results, it’s wise to go straight to the source.
It’s all about building relationships.
One quality which makes top recruiters so effective is the time and effort spent in developing authentic relationships, both with clients and with candidates. This offers a unique and special advantage when it comes to generating the ideal employment solutions for all parties.
The top candidates may not come looking for you.
Recruiters know that some of the best talent out there is in high demand; perhaps even currently employed. Because of this, trying to do your own hiring will sometimes yield less-impressive applicants. If you’re seeking an individual for an important position in your company, you should trust the pros with your needs.
They always represent their clients positively and professionally.
While this might not be a “secret,” it is a significant characteristic in effective recruiters. A recruiter will act on your behalf, providing a face to your brand and representing you in the best possible manner. This can assist in finding and securing the most sought-after candidates on the job market.
Listening might be the key to it all.
If there’s one thing that can be said of top recruiters, it is that they are outstanding communicators. Dealing with individuals from a huge range of industries, and handling candidates, businesses, and more, recruiters have developed the art of conversation. But a great recruitment expert knows that listening is the most important factor to any strong relationship. Our team at On Line Recruitment and Labour Hire is all about listening carefully to both our clients and our job seekers.
Recruiters are body language experts.
Interview situations handled by recruitment experts generally offer the best results. With years of experience and skills in the human resources field, top recruiters have well-developed instincts. They can immediately “read” potential hires and thus glean inside information almost instantly. Isn’t this the type of person you want finding your next employee?
