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.
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?
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?
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.
