It would sound logical to assume that the more recruiters you have working for you, the easier it would be to find the right candidate. In most all case, the wider net you throw, the more you catch. But is that really the case all of the time?
When you’re looking to bring on the top talent, it’s not that you’re looking for a needle in a haystack, you’re looking for the best needle in a stack of good needles. That requires shifting through and truly understanding the needs and requirements of the role. One person understanding that need to the core is hard enough, but multiple people understanding that is nearly impossible.
The person that you choose to help you locate, attract and hire top talent should:
- Be qualified to find the right needle
- Understand the needs of the company and role
- Have a working knowledge of the industry
- Give the search the same level of importance and attention you would
One of the best ways to go about finding the right candidates for positions is to partner with a reputable and results-driven executive search firm. Finding a search firm that is exclusively dedicated to your success is imperative. What’s the point of utilizing multiple recruiters and firms if you’re only getting a fraction of their time?
Another key thing to look for when selecting the right search firm is to look at the track record – have they worked in the industry? Do they stay up to date on industry trends? Do they have a network of existing contacts? Have they been successful in placing top talent?
