what industry were you recruiting previously? I find that cold calling is not my best sport but rather business networking. You should plan on attending various functions with business people and start to work on your referrals. I really dont have the magic potion for getting call backs. Just leave enough information to get them interested but not too much where they dont have to call back. hope this helps. good luck. Also check out our job board www.accountingjobstoday.com it has been great.
I'm wondering if you can give me a few pointers on getting passive accounting/finance candidates to call me back. I've been a recruiter for 10 years but only recently joined the accounting/finance industry and have found that it is definitely a different animal. I'm afraid the messages I'm leaving aren't what they want to hear. I look forward to your feedback.
I see that you are very experienced in working in Accounting / Finance roles and I am currently working on 3 very high level positions in Accounting / Finance that have been a challenge to fill.
I'm hoping we can network to mutual benefit. I am willing to offer a generous referral fee for any referrals that lead to a successful placement. One position is focused on a Transfer Pricing dedicated professional (needs to be a CPA) and the other two positions are focused on folks with good SEC reporting in their background (CPA plus other requirements). These positions are with 3 different employers.
If you think you may have some folks that qualify for any of these positions, please let me know and I will send you a full job description and details.
Hi Todd! Slouch said we should connect. I just entered the accounting/finance recruiting world although I have 10 years of recruiting experience. I would appreciate getting to know you and any pointers you can share!
