In today’s labor market, despite the COVID-induced unemployment rate, companies are still struggling to find highly skilled workers. For that reason, you need to do more than post a vague job description.
A job ad may get you responses, but you probably won’t get people with the sophisticated skills you are looking for. In fact, many talented people are not actively looking for work. That doesn’t mean, however, they wouldn’t consider an offer. Here’s how partnering with a recruiting agency can help you find qualified candidates.
Finding Passive Job Candidates
Without the right candidate search strategy, you would never even hear about these passive job seekers. That is why working with a recruiting company can help you find the best people. Recruiters over time have established extensive networks of people in the industries the recruiters deal with. They have knowledge of professionals who are not actively looking for work but who would consider offers from other companies.
Recruiters Have Connections
Recruiters routinely look through social media sites like LinkedIn to find top talent, and these people, in turn, refer others to the recruiters. Recruiters also contact people directly through email, phone, and text. Moreover, they are constantly checking out discussion groups online and professional organizations for leads. In addition, there are many people actively looking for work who use recruiters to help them find employment.
The bottom line is recruiting agencies have a talent pipeline they can send your way when you need it. You don’t have to start from square one in the job search.
In addition, the people recruiters will refer have already been screened by the agency to make sure the candidates fit the job requirements.
Recruiters Know How to Attract Candidates
Moreover, the recruiter can help to sell your company to job candidates. A good recruiter will learn about your company, its mission and values, and people. They can tell the candidate what it’s like to work at the company and answer questions that the person may have about the company.
