Needing to find the best recruiting services? Find your next great recruiter by looking for these five qualities.
"A great Web3 Recruiter will do more than find “qualified people.” They will change your business outcomes."
These are the 5 qualities of America's best professional recruiting firms in 2023
1. They listen to candidates to uncover how they can negotiate a potential offer
Every job seeker will have a list of “must-haves” when they are finding a job. This includes salary, work schedule, type of work, training opportunities, career goals, and benefits. The recruiter needs to focus on making the person's situation better than what they currently have. Sometimes improving a person's situation can come down to details like remote work and not in the office or working on an innovative product. These details help negotiate the best package for both sides for long-term employment.
2. They have refined sales and negotiation skills that offer solutions
Recruiting agencies require the same amount of sales as a real estate deal. There is a seller (the direct hire) and a buyer (the employer). The candidate is marketing their skills to get the best offer from the company. To facilitate this transaction, you have to listen to both sides' needs and then package an acceptable deal for both parties. Being able to sell the pros and minimize the cons is what will get the deal closed.
3. They have in-depth knowledge of your product and industry
To hire staff, you will need strong expertise and experience working in the industry you are recruiting for. For example, an IT Recruiter will have a tough time qualifying a Software Engineer if they know very little about the development process or the underlying technology. It is also essential to have knowledge of emerging trends and areas of expertise in the related field of the open job. This creates the highest possible of customer service for both the organization and new workers.
4. They are adaptable
As the saying goes, “life happens.” With no warning, people will quit their job search, managers will change job requirements, positions will go on hold, and those previously looking for work will accept counter-offers or another new job. They must roll with the punches and stay consistent to win the battle in order to be the leading recruitment agency.
5. They have large networks of specialized pre-qualified top talent
Recruiting firms who build relationships will have a larger network of pre-qualified talented individuals across the country and abroad, which improves speed to find the right match for your company. They do this by building trust throughout the hiring process in order to help people get started. A great recruiter will consult on logistics prior to an interview, giving pointers and preparing people for interviews. They will also provide feedback after interviews to help them improve for their next interview if things don’t go well. If they build good relationships, their network grows through referrals and by having a good rapport with those they have worked with in the past.
