till be there once the recovery clicks into gear. Who actually signed the truce in the War for Talent, and do Recruiters get a holiday for it?
Most businesses should experience growth in a bubble, and most agencies are reliant on their clients growth for their growth, and as a service industry it makes sense for it to happen that way.
Technical Recruiters have an advantage in this market, we've been through it recently, I'm not sure other industries have experienced such a hit in generational memory. I know of a number of companies who have been around for a while who have begun to focus on the clients of those companies who were formed in the last few years, ie set up in the good times, and focused on their clients with the idea being, "Dear Mr client, you may be nervous with company X there, as their financials haven't been that strong, rest assured if they fall over, we will be here to help you through any issues you'll have".…
an experienced recruiter and would like to participate.
You will be asked to look at five one-page resumes and give us your thoughts on the individuals’ estimated starting salaries. For the purposes of this study, you can assume the job applicant is flexible about location and fairly flexible about sectors given the current economic situation.
These are resumes are composites of several MBA students; they are not real people. Your reactions to the different resumes will allow us to gather information that can help future job seekers become more marketable.
In exchange for filling out the survey, we will gladly give you a "recommendation" on your LinkedIn.com profile. You will be able to compare your perceptions of the resumes with other recruiters.
Rest assured that your answers will be anonymous. Our goal is only to report the aggregate averages. We will not publish or share your information or answers unless you authorize us to do so.
So, please let me know if I can send you some composite resumes and if you can take literally just a few minutes to review them and share your thoughts on their estimated starting salaries. Thank you for your time!
experience each has had. My frame of reference comes from leading recruiting efforts for multiple multi-billion dollar companies, owning a search firm, running a jobsite and sitting in nearly all the individual contributor roles within a corporate recruiting structure.
Keep in mind as you read the rest of this that my opinion is based off a frame of reference of interaction with HR for many years in a multitude of ways. I have not seen the HR function add significant and consistent value to the recruiting process or profession. This does not mean there are not high quality people in HR. (I married one!) My viewpoint is the relationship between HR and Recruiting does not work in assisting recruiting, the overall business client or our profession as a whole. If my opinion creates innovative agitation within HR ranks I would be pleased as I have consistently heard from business leaders over the years they are not sure what value HR brings to the table. My stance will be an unpopular voice to some but rest assured it is because of my love of the recruiting craft and not to disparage another’s profession.
Often times HR involvement is akin to an "anchor around the neck" of recruiting related vendors, corporate recruiters and search professionals. HR needs to become active and value added participants in the recruiting process or admit we need to be attached elsewhere. Owning a process you don’t even like doing is a "head scratcher" to me. Recruiting does not need an “overseer” which is offensive and limiting to many of us.
What we need to ask is what is best for the business we serve and our profession. Aligning to a different area doesn’t mean we can’t collaborate with HR on talent management strategies if they so chose. Separating may enhance the relationship as it creates more of need to work together on equal terms.…
policy: If a company has not paid us, then we have a procedure that we follow to dispurse funds. First, we reach out to the company to verify that the candidate is still employed and that they intend to pay. Assuming that they say yes, we pay the funds on day 61 even if we have not collected the money. This is a service that we provide.
In your case, you filled a job at a division of the company and there was some confusion as to how to process the payment correctly. Because the timing of when we make verifications occurred during the holidays, the company didn't respond to our normal inquiries.
In addition, not sure what you have that shows a check was cleared, because it was not and we could only find records for one placement from you (please let us know if this is an error as we have no record of any others). Rest assured, as soon as verification is complete, the funds will be dispersed. We process thousands of transactions, and I think this one was slightly delayed due to the holidays. We have a rigorous collection process and we are proud that our users experience delayed payment in less than 2% of transactions which I am guessing is far lower than what anyone in this business generally experiences when working on their own.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention.…
