Random Thoughts On Recruiting – Random Thoughts

February 24, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Just some Random Thoughts about our beloved industry:

– Sourcing is 90 percent of it.

– Recruiting is not sales.  At least not the way many in our industry think of it.  You may sell your service to a client, but if you try to sell a candidate to them as opposed to finding the right one, you’re asking for trouble.

– When it’s done right, everyone is on the same side – Agency Recruiter, Corporate Recruiter, Hiring Manager, Candidate.

– Many in our industry don’t do it right.

– New technology and connectivity makes outside recruiters more important, not less important.  We now see after years of these innovations that while our clients’ reach on their own is expanded, our reach is expanded by much more with these tools.

– Our industry definitely is smaller now.  And that’s a good thing.

– Contingency is far and away the best model for agency recruiting for the long haul.  It lines everyone up on the same side and produces the greatest level of work and reach by a long shot.
