Tag Archives: become a recruiter
If you have been in the recruiting business long enough, you most likely have experienced it too. I am talking about rejections made by candidates at the end of the recruiting process; after you have been through all the screening, interviews and negotiations leading to employer’s job offer. This can be very upsetting to all parties involved. The fact is that the way you handle the recruiting process up-front will definitely affect the end results. Here are a few tips to help reduce the possibility of this happening to you!
I asked a number of recruiters who they thought their loyalty should go to, the client or the candidate. The general consensus was that loyalty should lie with the one that pays the fees. I have also heard many recruiters say that they don’t work for the candidates, but for their clients. Such statements imply that the recruiter’s allegiance is with the client only. While this thought process might work for some recruiters, there exists another group that may beg to differ. This second school of thought is based upon the principle that, since the recruiter’s only product is the candidate, the candidate therefore is and should be king.
