ople you included. Regulations often favor ingrained companies, reduce competition, and provide access for regulatory capture by larger companies at the expense of small.
" When terms and conditions are set by agencies are they vetted by an external authority? Do all agencies have the same terms and conditions?"
None. And that actually makes it better for everyone. The market can sort out the good recruiters from the bad and good recruiters rise to the top, gain exclusive or semi-exclusive relationships, and generate significant revenue.
I am sure everyone here came across situatoins where recruitiment is not "fully appreciated or understood" and that is the sales side of the job. Its your job to make the client understand what value you provide, its not the government's job.
And your final point speaks volumes. You seem to think people cannot self organize and they need government to provide rules and regulations and without these rules industries will die out. Its actually quite the reverse. As an aside I am on the agency side, have been for over 7 years (I love it!) and most of my clients work with us or possibly us and 1 other firm. But sometimes when entering new companies I do have to compete with several firms. And as Amy said open communication all around staves off disasters and if the client does not adhere to these rules, I fire them. One of the true benefits of being a contingent recruiter!…
d candidates. Altogether about 45 candidates for 15 positions over a period of 8 months. I find Bounty Jobs to be a complete waste of time if you are a recruiter who intends to create a respectful working relationship with a hiring authority. Communication and feedback from the companies was, without exception, substandard and uninformative. Sometimes it was nonexistent. I would not recommend Bounty to recruiters who are serious about building a business.…
es that belong to the "IT" types you want to recruit..
this helps build a candidate profile in your head, and then you can find openings with a bit more confidence. sooner or later, you'll find a chatty hiring authority or candidate that will tell you more stuff, and you keep learning until you fill in the blanks.
That's as close to a magic wand as it gets in this line of work.…
can't or won't communicate for whatever reason, then it becomes a huge time suck.
Since you are new, just get engaged on something you like, and give it a try..if anything, the resumes you collect in the effort can be used to open the doors to companies that may take you seriously, if you merit being taken seriously.
everything takes effort, and there are no shortcuts.…
but they do know the title of the hiring manager.
For those instances eGrabber has a product called LeadResearcher.
If you type in the company name and the hiring manager title, LeadResearcher will research the internet and get the missing details like Name of people holding that title, their email and phone number.
This will enable recruiters now to follow-up more effectively.
Thank you for showing the job board technique.
Remember, it does not matter if our answers are wrong. It is all in pursuit of clarity. To me.. it's sort of like trying to define "Web 2.0". But, should be great to hear what everyone "thinks" it is today.
So.... what does it mean to you?…
