What Is Your Recruiting Philosophy?

by Beverly Aarons 11. February 2011 08:47
One of the most important pillars in the foundation of any great independent recruiter’s business is a solid recruiting philosophy.  Below are a few a few questions independent recruiters can ask themselves so that they can develop a philosophy that is in line with their business goals and values.

1.     According to your perception, what is the most important aspect of recruiting?  For example, some recruiters believe that it’s important to get a high number of job candidates for a job order, while others take on the view that “less is more” and focus on just getting a few quality candidates for a job order.  What do you think?

2.     Do you measure candidates against a matrix of core competencies and let that be your guide to whether or not they are a good fit? Or, do you believe that you need to give the job candidate an overall assessment even if they don’t measure up to the competencies matrix?

3.     To interview or not?  While most independent recruiters don’t use interviews to assess job candidates applying for open job orders, the interview is an option.  Because recruiters now have access to lots of technology, such as video, phone and internet conferencing, interviewing a job candidate can be both inexpensive and convenient for recruiters.
