When it comes to what an executive recruiter does, not many people can give you a solid definition. If you ask a client, they will tell you that we find them top tier talent for their hard to fill positions. If you ask a candidate, they will tell you we find them jobs. However, if you ask a recruiter. we will tell you that we create an ever growing talent network consisting of skilled active and passive candidates that we use to uniquely identify top candidates within that network who meet and exceed client talent needs.
Because clients and candidates alike can’t identify exactly what an executive recruiter does for them, they also miss out on so many benefits that we are able to provide. If you think that you are only getting one service out of your recruiter, think again because we are able to provide so much more. We are experts in our industry, and clients and candidates alike should be utilizing their relationship with a recruiter for more than just finding new talent or a new job.
Recruiter as an Industry Insider
Having a recruiter on your side is like trading with insider knowledge, except legal. We are always on top of industry news and are tracking trends on the daily basis. After all, the signs of big industry news can always be traced back to what companies are hiring, who they are hiring, and who they are letting go. Recruiters know how to read the tea leaves, all you have to do is ask.
Recruiter as a Confidant
While we are ready to tell you the news on the industry, we will never spill your news. We are proudly bound by client privilege, which means you are able to confide in us about upcoming changes in leadership, a new department opening up, or other office news that you need talent for. We then are able to silently seek out candidates for you to look at before the news even breaks.
Recruiter as an Ambassador
Your job boards are likely to only bring you lackluster candidates who have been sending their resume to anyone who will take it. However, a recruiter is your ambassador to the passive candidate network. These are professionals who are already proven and successful in the prime of their career, but who are not actively looking. Let us be your ambassador instead of relying on outdated resume books and job boards.
Recruiter as a Hiring Guide
Believe it or not, according to leadershipIQ a staggering 46% of new hires are considered mis-hires within the first 18 months. The reason, faulty hiring practices. An executive recruiter can guide on improving how you screen candidates and lead you to the right choice. For example, at DCAProsearch we created our Diversity Recruiting Guide to help companies with recruiting and retaining diverse talent.
Recruiter as a Magnifier
There is a difference between being an applicant and a candidate. You’re an applicant if you simply submit your resume via on online link and hope for a response. With a recruiter vowing for you, you are instead a highly sought after candidate who has more legitimacy in the eyes of potential employers because you are being backed and talked up by a recruiter.
Recruiter as a Mentor
Who else is going to take the time to sit down with you and go over your resume, formulate a perfect thank you letter, or review interview success tips? When you trust us throughout the entire application process we are there for you to answer any question no matter how dumb it may feel. However, that does come with a catch. The only way we can help you is if you confide in us before, during, and after the hiring process. Why, because the application process doesn’t end with the interview, there are countless other factors you need to know that we can only tell you when you build a relationship with us throughout your career.
Recruiter as a Career Guide
Would you want to stay held back in the 10th grade even though you’re ready to graduate to 11th? Of course not. However, that is what too many professionals do within their careers. They remain stagnant in one position, not knowing they are ready to move up in their career progression. Recruiters know where you should be in your careers and what you should be seeking as your next strategic move. Ask a recruiter if you have stayed too long, and how you can advance your career.
