What Information Should a Recruiter Provide to Reduce Time on Your Hiring Decision?
When you work together with a recruiter to find well-matched candidates and staff your open position, you find a fast track to checking this important job off your to-do list. Recruiters remove some of the heaviest burdens of staffing and selection from your shoulders, including initial sourcing and first-round screening interviews. And they bring a deep background in staffing and behavioral profiling that some employers (often experts in their own industries) don’t necessarily have. Recruiters are knowledgeable and well connected, and they can help you find a well-qualified job seeker who can step into your workplace and contribute.
But to move the process forward, your recruiter will need to know what YOU need, and they’ll need to give you information that can streamline and shorten your decision process. Here’s what that information will entail.
A review of qualifications
Before presenting them, your recruiter will make sure prospective candidates pass a basic review of their qualifications. Need a four-year college degree? Check. Need a person who can lift 50 pounds? Need a person who lives within the state? Your recruiter will take care of this stage.
A pre-interview behavioral profile
At the ACCENT Hiring Group, we conduct a pre-interview with each candidate to assemble a behavioral profile. Then we schedule an interview to gather more detail about their intentions, history, qualifications and goals. After both sessions, we provide valuable information that’s designed to save you time and help you make smart decisions. Unlike some recruiters, our pre-check process provides information on salary history, past jobs, reasons for having left those jobs, and explanations for resume gaps.
A performance-based background check
Reference checks and calls to previous employers also take time, and they can sometimes result in awkward conversations or non-valuable information. But don’t worry; your recruiter can face this task so you don’t need to. They’ll call the candidate’s submitted references and make sure his workplace track record meets your needs and expectations.
