As discussed above, a company’s HR department can be overrun by resumes and applications, keeping it from making any substantial progress in its search for qualified candidates. Executive recruiters take care of almost everything, meaning that company officials can devote more time to their everyday tasks, increasing their productivity.
More passive candidates, less active job seekers
While active job seekers aren’t necessarily bad, chances are good that passive candidates aren’t going to apply to online job postings. In fact, some of them aren’t even really looking for a new job. However, they would be open to considering a new opportunity . . . IF that opportunity was presented to them. Executive recruiters know where these passive candidates are and how to present such opportunities.
A partner throughout the entire process
A quality recruiting firm will partner with a company throughout the entire recruiting, interviewing, hiring, AND on-boarding process to ensure a successful hire is made. A recruiter’s work is far from done once the candidate accepts the company’s offer of employment. That makes the company’s job far easier to accomplish.
Eyes and ears within the industry and in the marketplace
Executive recruiters work “in the trenches” day in and day out. They know what’s happening in the employment marketplace overall and their clients’ industry in particular. They know what the top talent is doing, and they know what the top companies are doing. This is all information to which companies want access, and they have access when they partner with a recruiting agency.
