The best recruiters possess an uncanny ability to match people with careers. It’s an intangible quality, and one that is hard to pinpoint.
Recruiters are the human resources professionals responsible for getting the word out about great job opportunities and getting qualified candidates to fill these positions. There are many different types of recruiters out there, from those who work as part of a HR team in a large corporation to third party recruiters working with agencies. Recruiting is a growing industry, and it’s getting more and more competitive every day. In order to stay on top, you need to self-assess every once in a while and make sure you have the qualities of a top recruiter. Here are some questions to ask to help you along.
1.Do you have a good network?
2.Can you do thorough research?
3.Are you using the latest tools?
4.Can you deliver consistent results?
However All clients want their recruiter to consistently deliver quality candidates that fit within their hiring guidelines and budget. You can have the largest network, the most impressive degree or the latest software, but you won’t be a top recruiter unless you can deliver stellar candidates under budget on a regular basis. Focus on consistency and reliability with your clients and your candidates, and your career will benefit.
Great recruiting requires perseverance and dedication above all else.
The most important and great thing about recruiting though is that for the right people, they get to do what they love every day – talk to people about their careers, earn a great living, and make a difference in people’s lives.
