Are You Getting the Most Out of Your Recruiters?

Posted on: February 11th, 2011 | Category: DirectView, hiring process, How To Hire Good Employees, Human Resources, Our Blog

We recently came across a great article at‘s Fortune blog called “10 tips for entrepreneurs looking to build great teams” by Craig Driscoll. It made many good points about the importance of good hiring practices, but the one that really got our attention was this:

Leverage recruiters where appropriate. Chances are you’re starting a company in a hot sector. Its also likely that top technical, product, marketing and leadership talent will be hotly contested. Recruiting is a full contact sport and sometimes you need a hired gun to help. Only work with recruiters who have been referred to you by your network and carefully screen them. Ask them for a recent search that didn’t have a successful outcome and reference that person. If you do engage a recruiter, be explicit about the bar for talent in your company. If you decide that they’re right for you, make them a true partner. Share everything you can about your company so there are no surprises and arm them with every weapon you can to help land that exceptional candidate.

We couldn’t agree more! If you own a small or midsized business, chances are you don’t have the time or HR staffing to create that critical partnership with the recruiters you are relying on to find the talent you need. You might not even have the resources to properly oversee the headhunters’ activities to make sure they are working effectively and in your best interest.  That’s where hireVision can help. Using our FullView phone interview service, we work with your recruiters, or find recruiters for you, to fill those hard-to-find positions. We manage the entire process on your behalf.

With our Hiring Process Management and DirectView services, you can get the most out of not just your headhunters, but out of every phase of the pre-hiring process.
