So what is an employer to do when faced with such a challenge to fill an open position? Taking a page from the recruiter's handbook, including recruiting passive candidates and understanding how top candidates look for jobs, can help with these staffing challenges. Recruiting Passive Candidates Most people who could do any given job...…

Getting the Most From an IT Recruiter Dec 16

The relationship between a business and its IT recruiting service is a lot like a marriage. It sometimes starts out with giddy optimism and is followed by a period of inevitable adjustment as both parties learn the ins and outs of the relationship. The question is, how do you keep the love alive in your relationship with an IT recruiter? Communication is Key As in a marriage, communication is the cornerstone of a good working relationship. As dazzling as their interpersonal skills are, recruiters typically lack one quality. They are not psychic.   "You are looking for...a tall, dark-haired man with a business degree?"

If you are on the fence about using an IT recruitment agency to handle your staffing needs, it may be time to hop off and put your feet firmly on the ground. Here's why. Much like the difference between buying a suit off the rack and having a tailor custom-make your clothing, IT recruiters provide access to candidates that are custom-fit for your specific requirements.

Most recruiters know that many of the most qualified candidates for a particular position are already employed in good jobs when the position becomes open. Recruiters spend time opening communication with these qualified candidates through social media and other avenues in order to try to recruit them at some future date. When you are the target of such recruiting efforts, taking the new opportunity or staying in your current job can be a difficult decision. Leaving a perfectly good job is not easy to do, but staying put may not be the best option in every case either....…

Hitting a Recruiter's Target Every Time Dec 03

Knowing how to approach and interact with a recruiter can help get you to the interview process. IT recruiters don't make final hiring decisions, but they do much of the legwork in the lead up. To get in front of a company hiring manager, you've first got to get onto the recruiter's radar and get his attention. How to Introduce Yourself to a Recruiter Email is the perfect vehicle for a first introduction to a recruiter. The phone takes too long, and social media is too casual, but sending a brief, professional email with a few of your qualifications in bullet-point format will send the message that you are a quality candidate worth looking at. Although it may seem strange to email an...…
