Recruitment is all about hiring the right talent with good personality, which leads the way to success of a company. So it is crucial for any end client or the system integrator or a staffing company to have the right Recruitment personal in order to select the right talent. Each of the above firm may differ in their hiring process or approach but they have to be very strong in the basics of recruitment. To stay ahead in this cut throughout competition and challenges, recruiters have to adapt to the changing trends (e.g social networking), do proactive hiring, and create pipeline resumes. Recruiters have to develop rapport with clients/vendors/candidates and manage relationship and retain the talent.
Recruiters have to fill details in the recruitment tracker consistently for proactive hiring and reactive hiring, by which they will be able to learn from their costly mistakes and measure their own performance from the following metrics:
- No of resumes submitted for the requirement
- Turnaround Time for submitting the resumes
- Qualified Resumes to Requirement
- Submission to selection Ratio
- Offer to joining ratio
- Number of Hires
From my experience as a senior Recruiter, I have seen many recruiters do following things one or in many ways.
- Writing poor job description in job boards
- Sourcing the resumes without understanding the project description and requirement
- Sourcing the resumes with key words in the skill set. (Note: It is not mandatory that candidates will list all of their skills in their resumes)
- Talking to fewer candidates and speaking less time with the candidates
- Forwarding the resumes without doing the preliminary screening.
- Posting the requirement in job boards and waiting for the candidates to call
- With less knowledge in tax terms (w2, c2c, 1099)
- With less knowledge in visa terms
- With less knowledge in social networking
- Not able to identify the fake working experience, fake age, false information about visas.
- Not able to explain about their own company and its prospects and attract candidates.
- Lagging in co-operation and co-ordination within the team.
All the above problems may be due to inexperience in the recruitment field, lack of practical work experience or less willingness to learn.
