Why Working with a Recruiter Will Result in a Better Hire

It’s true! Odds are high that working with a recruiter, whether internal or external to your company, will result in a better hire for your business. Here’s why:

1. Recruiters Have Proven Records of Success
Recruiters, including external ones who work for staffing agencies, specialize in finding the best hires. Recruiters are deeply trained to source and identify top-notch talent according to the needs of your business. They have experience, connections and expertise not readily available to the general public.

2. Recruiters Save You Time and Money
No doubt you know that hiring is a costly and time-consuming process. The role of a recruiter ranges from writing an accurate and engaging job description to sifting through resumes to conducting interviews—and that is only the tip of the iceberg. Recruiters do much, if not all, of that work for you so that you can focus on your business. And because recruiters devote their full attention to your situation, they are in a great position to find and assess skilled and experienced candidates who are a good cultural fit for your business.

3. Recruiters Know Where the Talent Is
Recruiters stake their reputations on bringing the best talent possible aboard their client companies. To that end, they have networks and resources such as peer groups where they can quickly source excellent job candidates. A recruiter can even discreetly and effectively contact the best talent working for a competitor of yours.

4. Recruiters Woo Candidates
Job candidates like to feel special. Wooing them is not necessarily always (or even most of the time) about splashy meals but rather about giving them attention and identifying how they and your company can help each other. To get the best hires, someone experienced such as a recruiter should woo candidates rather than someone who has his or her attention split many ways.

In a nutshell, recruiters allow your business to focus on what it does best so that they can focus on what they do best too—finding top-notch talent. And they do it quickly, effectively and professionally.
