return fees when they don't like the outcome? We are a service business that gets paid for a service in a free market system. Is not taking contingency business risk enough? It's bad enough we have to educate clients on our value - drives me a little wild to have to remind recruiters that companies cannot only afford us (as well as not afford to not hire us), but get what they pay for.
I don't think my fees are exorbitant by the way. They're part of the value added investment that stellar talent brings to the party.…
uiters from various geographical locations therefore different clients or even apart of in house recruiting, we all come across different experiences and situations when it comes to dealing with "Recruiting"
I see people expressing on this thread that it is possible to NOT REQUIRE external recruiters. This may be true if your dealing with a start-up company or a company that hasn't chosen the right steps to scale up.
In my experience being in this game for a little over four months I would have to say I disagree. I believe and see it true, based on experience through working with top web companies such as Pandora, Yahoo, Apple and more that these companies understand the value and see that it is required to hire external recruiting services if they are in the process of growth and creating stability.
There should be no reason that I can think of, that would not require external recruiters.
The closet two things I can think is if the company is in a slow growth spurt or they have created A smart CYBER KILLING MACHINE ROBOT that creates a system that does not require neither a sourcer or even a recruiter. (Like that will ever happen anytime soon) Sourcing by it self however, can be achieved through Machine learning Technologies. Which would require a decent amount of funds for an R & D program to accomplish.
In conclusion, enterprise companies (like yahoo) will always recruit outside agencies to hire for there roles (maybe even along with there in-house recruiters) And start-up companies who are aggressively scaling up see the value in a quality external agency that shows a good track record, and promising current and past clients.
