Whenever you have a new job opening, you may start to dread the months-long process of sorting through resumes and conducting interviews. Especially if you're seeking a senior-level professional, the process can drag on and take up your valuable time. And time is money.
Companies are deciding to hire a third-party recruiting firm, which can help save both time and money. Third-party recruiters are subcontracted entities that will help you fill positions faster and more efficiently. But again, its important you hire the RIGHT firm.
Here are some of the many advantages of going this route.
You won't have to see every resume
A huge part of the hiring process is going through the many applications you receive for a position. The hardest part is, most of the applicants don't meet all requirements for the job, but you can't figure that out without reading some key facts on the resumes.
With a third-party recruiter, however, you won't have to be part of that tedious process. Recruiters can easily spot which resumes have the experience necessary to be a serious contender, and those are the only resumes you'll see.
This can open up lots of time for you to spend on running the business and lets you focus on your core business. And, it will speed up the entire process.
They can seek out qualified candidates
Another advantage of going with a recruiter is that they'll put feelers out in the industry and job sites like LinkedIn (and many others).
Very importantly an outside recruiting firm is judged (paid) by the results and quality of candidates it delivers, i.e. the focus is on quality and finding the RIGHT people. (rather than a volume-based 'good luck with any of the applicants' system)
Recruiters phone screen
Recruiters take the reigns of the first step of the interviewing process: the phone screen. This again will open up time for you to focus on other things and they can figure out which candidates seem like the best fit.
Professional recruiters screen candidates and assess them. Often the mistake made is that candidates are judged by they resume-profile only. Some of the best candidates however either don't have any (impressive) resume or online-presence!
These are just a few of the many reasons hiring a third-party recruiter can save you loads of time and thus, money, on the hiring process.
This is why many companies use outside recruiters for high-level positions. Can you really afford NOT to hire the RIGHT person? YES Partners understands this and make it easy to find the right candidate for your company. To see some of the roles we have already successfully placed, click here.
