Hiring Great Recruiters

January 31st, 2017

Whether you have on-staff recruiters in your HR department, contract recruiters on an as-needed basis, or have an ongoing connection with a reputable staffing agency, working with top notch recruiters is one of the smartest steps to improve your level of talent among employees. Maintaining a solid foundation of individuals who know how to recruit top talent will not only help your day-to-day business; this will also help your reputation within the business world. Here’s what to look for in a recruiter.

Look for People Who Are Confident.

One of the most notable qualities of a successful recruiter is that s/he is confident. Recruiting potential candidates is a tough job, and it’s important for your recruiter to have the confidence to think s/he can obtain the top talent. When you’re looking to see if someone is confident, look at how they carry themselves, how they speak, and how they speak about themselves. All three options are great clues as to whether or not someone is confident.

Look for People Who Are Resourceful.

Being a recruiter means that you need to be resourceful to obtain the top talent. To attract a resourceful individual, ask them about their thought and action process regarding how they find, reach out to, and close on top talent. You will have a lot of insight into their resourcefulness depending on how they answer.

Look for People Who Have Sales Experience.

Top-level recruiters also have sales experience. After all, they are “selling” your company to individuals with the talent you need.
