Partnering with a recruiting firm can be one of the best decisions your company makes when needing to make a critical hire. However, many companies have a lot of questions going into it. How can we make this a successful relationship? What part do I play? Is this going to work? Worry not. We’re breaking down the 3 keys to success when working with a recruiting firm. Stick with these, and you’ll have a hire in no time!
Open Communication Throughout the Recruiting Process
It is so SO important to maintain open communication with working with a recruiting firm. Our goal is to help you hire someone as quickly and efficiently as possible. This means we need to talk directly to the hiring manager to get the details on what they’re looking for in an ideal candidate. We might need to schedule an interview ASAP because our candidate is interviewing with three other companies. And last but definitely not least, we’ll need feedback immediately following the interview. This helps us determine how to move forward, whether that’s facilitating an offer or finding another great candidate.
Prioritize the Task at Hand
We know that every day your position goes unfilled is costing you money, stress, and employee morale. That’s why we make it a point to prioritize filling this role, and we simply ask that you do the same. Review the resumes as quickly as you can, set aside some pre-scheduled times for interviews, and get that offer letter out! There’s a saying we use here at JSG, “Time kills all deals,” and it rings especially true in this candidate-driven market.
Maintain the Relationship
Once your critical need is filled, doesn’t mean our relationship has to end! Let’s keep in touch to discuss industry trends, other roles that may open up, and some once-in-a-lifetime candidates that we may come across in our networking. The more we know about you, your team, and your company, the better we can help when the time comes!
