The Recruitment, The Reputation, The Reality

Open 10 random recruiter profiles, and take note of how often they shift jobs…

There is a horrible reputation toward recruiters because of this…

  • No accountability

  • No loyalty

  • No commitment

  • No continuity

And honestly, I DONT BLAME THEM… because employers with a need for full-time recruiters:

  • Provide unrealistic working conditions

  • Don’t provide the right tools for automation of insane volume or technical requirements

  • Think that recruitment is as easy as doing a job post on LinkedIn

  • Have them report to 3-10 Hiring Managers at a time

  • Think psychometric and competency-based evaluations are accurate.

  • (It is at most, indicative of what someone could be "in the right conditions;" as self-evaluations are biased, and filled with suggestive wording - resulting in less than “ideal” predictive outcomes).

  • Would rather hire 5 fresh candidates, than pay for one existing employee to be trained by an expert. (Redundant or unnecessary volume).

  • Managers blame the recruiters for delays and hiring mistakes and candidates blame recruiters for not following up.

  • Believe they can replace a manager with "someone more junior," and train them up...


If you are replacing a manager, who do you expect to train the new junior person?

Here are the facts of the matter…

  • Hiring managers, it’s your responsibility to hire your team… Remember, recruiters, are there to make it less of a painful experience for you. Take ownership of your department and technical requirements

  • Candidates, if you want the job - whether you were approached or applied - follow up with the recruiter (communication is a two-way street).

  • Invest your cash on in-house L&D, which will be cheaper than hiring over the course of 1 year… (and it reduces employee turnover).

  • A custom-tailored training for your specific business by the department; will save you Tens of Thousands in hiring and hiring mistakes.

  • Train like it is a continuous business process, but hire only when you absolutely must.

No wonder recruiters get fed up so easily!

Be human, but even more so, be cashflow savvy. - Think toward the future to save money during the fiscal year.

- volume isn’t everything -

For the reasons above…
