- what can I do to set me apart from other recruiters…easy - the little things do matter. Do you actually listen to the candidates you are talking to? Some will tell you a story, about themselves, a pet or a situation. Take notice. Remember it.
Did they tell you a story about their dog - next time you are at the store, if there is a funny card, with a dog on it - send it to them. Did they tell you a story about going to the “big game.” Next time you see an article on the web, about that team - send it to them. Are they in an industry that is going through some rough times? Send them info. you come across about the industry. Don’t just send emails or leave messages and say “how are you”. Have a purpose in your message and for your contact.
I have said it before and will say it again - be honest and treat people how you would want to be treated and you will have a lot of candidates, wanting to work with you and your company.
