Does the success of your business often depend on hiring key employees? If you're like many other companies, headhunting services may be just what you need. With an almost unlimited number of ways to advertise job openings, there are plenty of options for finding outstanding candidates. However, it's also possible to find yourself spending too much time trying to fill a key position, or to hire an employee who doesn't work out.
A professional headhunting service can help you find the best candidates for your open positions – and fast – while saving you time, money, and frustration. A good headhunting firm will have plenty of experience in finding qualified employees for a variety of positions, and will also have a thorough understanding of your industry, so they know who to target in their search. In addition, headhunters understand what it takes to be successful at your company and can help screen candidates for cultural fit as well as skillset. You can either hire a headhunting firm on a retainer basis or simply pay the firm on a per-placement basis. The former is often the best choice for companies who are continually hiring, while the latter is better suited to situations where you have only one or two positions to fill at any given time.
A referral service may also be of some help in your search for qualified employees. These types of services typically offer little or no value to the hiring process, but they do provide listings of employees who are looking for new jobs. They also let you make contact with potential candidates, which you can then use to conduct your search.
Take care in choosing a headhunting firm that understands the type of work you need to be done. If you don't, you risk wasting time and money on a process that does little to enhance your company's productivity.
Our main focus when headhunting is to approach our vast pool of candidates created throughout networking. Great people usually know great people and are happy to recommend our services anytime we are looking for strong professionals. We truly believe that networking is the best tool that we have to secure new talent. Throughout our digital processes and because we always deliver on our promise, we are constantly bringing more value to our network.
Cold calling is the best way to reach out to candidates. It’s more personal and allows you to get your point across in a clear, concise manner. You can also connect with them on an emotional level by sharing your passion for the role and company. And it’s not just about reaching people – it’s about making sure they listen too! That means being able to speak, confidently, and passionately so that they are engaged from start to finish. We have all of the tools needed for success when cold calling candidates including scripts, templates, training videos, coaching sessions, etc…
LinkedIn makes it easy for us to target our next footprint for headhunting, which allows us to create a powerful and effective recruitment strategy. With the job seeker's profile already available on LinkedIn, we can quickly review their skills and qualifications before reaching out. One of the main benefits of using LinkedIn is that we know the market and who are the most relevant professionals in the industry. This combined with our network of over 3000 professionals helps us secure even the most difficult type of jobs.
One of the first steps we take when we start to headhunt for our clients is to ask our existing candidates for referrals. Having a huge number of positions that we have hired for, we get access to a large pool of candidates that are interested in changing their jobs. They most often use us as their eyes and years in the market. In addition, people referred for jobs are almost three times more likely to be hired. We are constantly focusing on getting referrals from our top candidates that have been pleased with our services.
