In the following article you will find some helpful tips for finding the right recruiter:
Across markets and industries of all kinds the supply of top quality skills and talents is in short supply. With this in mind, it is imperative that you have someone at your side who has a deep understanding of the needs of your company, the competition, the sector in your industry and the recruitment pool.
You have to think of the competition and get yourself the specialist who can properly position your company for a competitive edge in the recruitment process.
Think of your recruiter as your MVP in the center zone of the recruitment market courts. You will want to make sure your player has the skills and experience to manage this vital position and make killer moves. But, even many professional recruiters lack this experience and canny insights. If your recruiter can’t even describe the professional that you are seeking, how will they be able to make decisive moves and interview the right clients?
Experience matters. Before you sign on with any recruiter, you will need to make sure you have checked their professional record and made sure they have the experience for the role they will play.
How well do they understand the specifications you are looking for? Just because someone has demonstrated some very insightful and detailed information in one sector of the market does not mean they fully understand the nuances and subtleties of other sectors of the same market.
This is why we at Orion apply our attention to individual sectors of the same market. We disagree with the notion that recruiters can be generalists. Finding the right candidate for LNG roles requires a very individual set of skills. For this reason a serious and effective recruitment team is a specific and targeted team.
Finally, never accept candidates that were not specifically targeted and approached by your recruiters. There is nothing worse than having your time wasted in the recruitment process.
