Finding and hiring top recruiter talent is the toughest search assignment to work, yet it is also the most profitable.
You will receive a fee for a successful search assignment; however, a successful placement of a recruiter in your firm will create an ongoing annuity based on the increases in sales, client development, and an increased candidate database.
Further success will be realized in the internal momentum and synergy among your recruiters that comes with the addition of another productive recruiter.
Of primary importance is starting a recruiter hiring process based upon a solid understanding of the truths. Armed with knowledge of the realities, you can plan and execute a strategic hiring process with great success as a predictable outcome.
Reality #1: More will fail than succeed.
Good times, bad times; this is a challenging business fraught with pitfalls and variables.
An average individual will often fold under its weight. A proven prescription for the best individual formulation of characteristics and experience is paramount but not a guarantee against failures.
