4 Steps to Choosing the Right Recruiting Company

By Uncategorized

So, you need help finding qualified talent, and you want to work with a recruiting company because you know they can save your business valuable time and money and connect you with not only better candidates, but more candidates than you could find on your own. But how do you find the right recruiting company for your needs? Unfortunately, sometimes finding the right recruiting company can be just as tough as finding the right candidates for the job in the first place. But it doesn’t have to be. In fact, it shouldn’t be, and it won’t be if you follow these five steps. Here are our tips to help make finding the right recruiting company easier.

Determine your company’s requirements

Hopefully, you already have a very good idea of the kind of person, or people, that you want to hire. This can include their professional and/or educational background, certifications, achievements, experience, skillset, and attitude. Once you know these things, you’ll have a better idea of what you need to look for in a recruitment agency. Obviously, you’ll want to partner with an agency that not only has experience in your industry but is focused on this niche.

Do your research

Just as you would research all the applicants who apply for a specific position, you should do your due diligence and look into the different recruiting companies you’re considering. As alluded to above, the first and most important thing you need to find out is their experience, both in the area you need them to work in, and with finding candidates for the position(s) you are trying to fill. One of the reasons why you want to work with a recruiter is because you’re looking for hard-to-find skillsets, so you want to ensure that a recruiting company can connect you with the best candidates with these skills that no one else can find. In addition to researching their experience, you also want to research their hiring strategies, candidate pool, and their team. You should also research their reputation and see what past clients have to say.

Along with their website, a recruiting agency’s LinkedIn profile is another great place to look for this information. If you’re unable to find much of this information online, you probably don’t need to continue on to step two.

Meet face-to-face

Meeting in person is a crucial step in building a professional relationship for you both. Think of this as your chance to interview and evaluate them and be clear about what you want, what your pain points are, and why you are reaching out in the first place so they can speak directly to their ability to fulfill your needs. In this meeting, whether it be in person or a video conference, you should discuss expectations openly and honestly and learn more about the things you previously researched. Other important topics to bring up in this meeting are how many points of contact you will have with their company, whether or not they understand your business on a technical level, and how well they know the market.

Pick a recruiting company you are comfortable with

After doing your research and meeting with each recruiting company, you should have everything you need to make a decision about which one you will partner with. Our advice? Go with whichever one makes you more comfortable. This will make the process of finding the top talent you need a lot more enjoyable and productive.
