Staffing Agency Insurance: Recruiting Tactics
There are multiple recruiting tactics out there and every recruiter has their own personal spin on recruiting strategies that work for them.
Some strategies work better than others. The quickest is the flood recruitment approach- trying to find as many candidates as quickly as possible using large searches and key buzzwords. This approach may work in the short term. However, even though it can fill positions fast, the likelihood of finding quality, long term candidates who will stay with the company is slim.
Great recruiters aren’t always looking to expedite the process at all costs. In the case of locating permanent candidates for your clients, quality over quantity is key. Customer collaboration is key in the recruiting process. Staffing industry professions should ask a lot of detailed questions, listen carefully and develop a recruiting strategy.
By taking these initial steps to conduct a thorough information interview with the company, recruiters not only understand the technical skill requirements but also the firm’s interview process and culture. These factors can help you develop a better idea of what type of candidates would be a good fit for the company and to narrow the field.
