Words and Phrases to Recruit by!!!
Words and Phrases to recruit by!!!
In no particular Order
1. Take control!!- This means to come in and establish yourself with
your client. You must establish credibility, in order for them to truly
work with you and for you to have the type of presence needed to be
viewed as the "Recruiting Master" and SME.
2. Establish Process!!- Make sure you establish the process you will use
to help your client fill positions. A well established and agreed upon
process make it easier all around. Everyone knows what to expect
from you and what is expected from them. Go so far as to create an
SLA or SOW even.
3. Go beyond the Basics!!- This means to go more than the minimum. If
looking for a VB person do not just search under VB, spell it out
Visual basic. Find more about it and see if there are other names or
acronyms that can be used for it. Is it part of a bigger product? Find
out more about the JD, really understand it. Maybe even go so far as
to shadow someone doing that job for a few hours. Get a copy of a
resume of someone who is doing it now and really doing well. When
searching do not just use "resume" use CV, Curriculum Vitae, Bio,
Profile. Do not just search in a paid site and that is all. Utilize all the
search and recruiting sources available(I will be listing some at a later
post). In other words do not just do what is easiest or is basic
recruiting. Do more, go above and beyond.
4. Over Communicate!!- As with any relationship communication is
key. I have found it is far better to over communicate than under
communicate. Clients appreciate knowing what is going on and one
of the biggest complaints about recruiting is lack of communication.
One of the biggest ways to do this is to manager your inbox. Do not
let it become overwhelming and a place where emails go to die. Stay
on top of it. Create rules and alerts to help deal with some of the
emails and see #6 below.
5. Warp Speed!!- This means simply work fats, work like it is important,
because it probably is. Do not procrastinate and put things off. You
will find that usually when you do, things creep back up on you and
you run out of time. So work are "Warp Speed", meaning work as fast
as you can while not giving up quality. Trust me your clients will
appreciate it and you will find it gives you more time later.
6. Multi Task!!- This simply means to do more than one thing at a time.
Do not just source on the internet for one particular job, when you
could have several windows open, sourcing in multiple places, for
multiple jobs. Learn how to do more than one thing at a time, and you
will find you have more time for those emergencies that always come
7. Organization and Planning are the glue!!- This is by far the most
important one of all. You must know how to organize and plan your
time effectively. As an example one of the biggest problem recruiters
have is finding time to source. This is most true of corporate
recruiters who get sucked into all sorts of things. Well simply put
sourcing time on your calendar for everyday. This guarantees you
time to source. But do not just stop there. Go in with a plan. Know
your openings and have them prioritized. Set a number of candidates
you want to find for a given opening on a weekly basis. Do your
sourcing at the time you set forth, but follow your plan. If you have
50 openings, and you have decided 5 for each a week is good, Then
use your sourcing time to find your 5 candidates for the first opening
and then move on to the next. This ensures you will find candidates
for all your openings, and usually will leave you some time left. Most
recruiters I know when they do source get so caught up in one
opening, by the time their sourcing time is done, they have only
sourced for one opening and have numerous more they have done
All of these words or phrases will help you be a better recruiter. As you can
see they all connect in some way. So if you do them all you will excel. But
of course keep in mind. These are not the only ones. These are just the ones
that I have found have served me the best
