Finding a new employee for your organization can be a struggle. Searching for that perfect match, someone who will fit in seamlessly into the culture of your organization can be a hard, full time job. Here are five reasons why working with a headhunter will not only ease the burden on your end, but can actually find you a better candidate.
FOCUS ON WHAT YOU DO BEST
Your company’s job most likely isn’t headhunting, so why do it yourself? Recruiting new hires is a full time job, and sometimes it can take months to find a great candidate for your company. By letting the headhunter find the perfect candidate for your company, you can get back to doing what your company does best.
SAVE MONEY AND TIME
There is a popular myth that recruiters are too expensive, which is why some firms don’t use them. But ask yourself this: “Is it really worth having one of my senior managers on LinkedIn, searching various job boards, and sifting through hundreds of resumes to find one candidate?” Their time might be better spent elsewhere. Headhunters will generally send your hiring manager 3-5 of the best candidates they came across, thus saving your company countless hours of combing the internet searching for the ideal employee.
FIND THE BEST PEOPLE
The best candidates are not usually people who are actively looking for jobs, but because of this very reason it is hard to get them to apply for new opportunities. Experienced headhunters have huge networks of people that they can leverage to find your new employee, and it is this prior relationship that will get the candidate to seriously consider a new opportunity. They can also bring in people your company has never seen before, because they can find the candidates who are not on the job market.
FIND PEOPLE QUICKER
A good headhunter will have several ideal candidates in mind once you give them positions details. Moreover, recruiters don’t just help find the candidate, they are involved in the entire hiring process from start to finish. This means they help with things like getting the candidate to accept the offer much quicker, and help renegotiate terms such as start date and salary. Quicker turnaround for finding new employees will result in less downtime with increased efficiency and greater immediate success for your company.
A headhunter’s job isn’t simply to fill an opening in your company; it is to find the perfect match for the position based on the qualifications that you, the client, has given them and on industry specifications. Due to their specific industry knowledge, they will be able to screen, filter, and match the best candidates to your company, saving your company time, money, and the hassle of doing it yourself.
