The work of a recruiter goes beyond the expected nine-to-five hassle of corporate life. Most recruiters put their sweat and toil into getting the right candidate. It’s no surprise that many recruiters begin each day well planned, only to end up in complete disarray as many unexpected activities spring up and nearly drive them insane. Unfortunately, many job seekers see recruiters as annoying or unnecessary intermediaries for their next job. But the reality is quite different. Although the recruiting process looks like merely matching people with available job openings, a lot of strategic, personal and analytic skills go into managing […]

If we start reading job advertisements from various industries, we will see that employers require experience in most of these ads. We see things like “at least five-plus years’ experience,” “ten-plus years’ experience in a similar role,” etc. In some cases, it makes sense to inform a candidate how much experience is needed for the position. One year of experience is not considered sufficient in most cases, while no experience whatsoever makes finding a job for young people a real challenge. There are highly talented people out there who may be just perfect for the job you have within your […]

Every culture has used stories as a means to connect, to inform and entertain. Things haven’t changed much, we still enjoy listening to a good story, and this fact helps when looking to retain talents and hire the people you want in your […]

Most companies are in search of the ‘perfect hire’ for their open roles. It’s understandable because every company requires the ‘best fit’ employees to thrive. Top achievers are the backbone of any business. Therefore, after successfully hiring these stellar candidates, companies can then pat themselves on the back, knowing they have the best hands on deck. But the reality is far from that: the perfect hire doesn’t exist. It’s almost a myth. In reality, a company can only hire the ‘best’ that is available on the market — in a pool of interested candidates, not the best available in the industry. […]

The worst enemy of any recruiter or sourcer is not the candidate, hiring manager or competitor. Not even time is our biggest enemy. The worst enemy of every recruiter is a habit. Habits are far worse than any mistakes we make. Our work habits determine how productive we are, and they affect how successful we are in finding and acquiring candidates. They also shape the type of strategies we use every time we get to work. But sometimes the habits we utilize become old and useless in the ever-changing and progressive world of recruitment. It’s usually at this point that […]
