tes for their interview?
Sure, you can arrange 15 "CCI's" in one week - but if you aren't coaching your candidates better than your competitors are, then you aren't going to end up with many placements!
You can control nearly everything during the recruiting process, except what goes on in the interview. And you could feel like you've worked extremely hard to get your candidate into that interview, but if you've failed to give them key tips and advice on how to prepare for that SPECIFIC interview (not just generic interview tips!) - then their chances of out performing everyone else are greatly reduced.
I'd rather spend more time preparing three candidates for their interview in one week, instead of trying to get an additional 10 interviews in the bag. Can you seriously manage 15 interviews in one week anyway, in addition to trying to meet more clients and candidates for future business? If I've put more focus and energy into preparing my three candidates, in order to ensure they are going to out perform everyone else in their interviews, then I can be very confident that I'll be making good placements.
In addition, it doesn't matter how well you prepare those three candidates, you have to be very confident that each candidate you are putting forward for a role fits exactly what the client is looking for. There can be no if's about it... if you're not certain that the candidate you are putting forward is perfect for the role (in the eyes of the client), then what are they paying you for?
Forget the numbers game... focus on quality over quantity any day... and you'll be making far more money, without trying to juggle too much in the air at one time.
Oh... and if you want to stop playing the numbers game, but don't know how.... Simply find a niche market, and make that niche as small as possible. Become the best recruiter to go to in that niche... make sure you know all the top performing candidates as well as all of the hiring managers. If your niche is as small as mine, then it won't take you very long to build up your reputation in that niche, and stay on top of the game.
Just a few tips from me... I've only been doing the job for 12 years now, and I'm far from perfect still!
a strategy and follow it. My strategy for LinkedIn is that I will ONLY connect with those people with whom I've had a significant conversation. What's the upper limit number? I don't know, because I am still having significant conversations. As for this site, I want to learn everything I can from those of you who are in the recruiting business, so I will befriend you if asked. I want to know because, as a career coach, I work with dozens of unemployed executives every week. I need to know what's happening in the larger scene in order to assist them.
One more thing, so you banned two good looking women from this site because they didn't friend you? Thank God I'm an ugly old man, because I haven't friended you yet . . . and probably won't now because I;m sure you would just de-friend me rather quickly! :-)
One more thing, we have another ning site geared towards job seekers. If any of you recruiters want to join us over there and give some tips and insights to them, you are more than welcome. You can find us at Career Crossroads 2.0.…
they do have power: the power to keep you out.
Who do they let through?
1. People who have been to the castle before.
2. People who can serve the king.
Who will they keep out of the castle? Those who have fear and uncertainty in their voice.
Don’t ask. Tell.
Don’t ask for the person you are trying to reach. Tell the receptionist you need to speak to that person. Don’t ask, “Is John
Smith there?” Instead say, “Scott Love calling for John Smith.” This
works for two reasons:
1. You don’t sound afraid or fearful or timid or unsure.
2. It sounds like you have been to the castle before.
I’ll never forget the time that a recruiter told me she closed a $35k fee from learning this one little tip from me during an in-house training session. About two months after I spent a day in her office, she
called me to tell me that this one little tip changed her entire desk
and was able to get her access to hiring managers and high performing
candidates. Without that knowledge, she wouldn’t have been as far
along. Most of the quantum changes in your performance stem from small
incremental improvements like this, which is why you need to study your
craft every day. Most of the improvements in my training and coaching
clients come from little things like this.
