As a hands-on recruiting & sourcing professional in the San Francisco Bay Area, California market since year 2000, it’s been exciting to work in a field that’s particularly dynamic and ever changing. It is the nature of the IT industry to constantly innovate and so creates special challenges for recruiters, particularly today when top candidates are in such high demand. Speed to market is often critical for clients who need the right resource in short time. We need to ensure both the client and the candidate’s goals are met and a great match is made without much compromise.
As recruiter / sourcer, always pressure is “on” to connect IT professionals and clients quickly. I always perform a assessment of a candidate’s experience, skills and career goals. Share the complete job description and key points. Have clear understanding of what candidate’s goals and preferences are.
Stay connected on LinkedIn or twitter. I let the candidate know about additional openings and am responsible to give updates about opportunities that may be a match. As a consultant, you should feel as though your recruiter is committed to finding the right opportunity for you. As recruiter, I will want to continue to follow-up while you’re on assignment. Ensure you’re happy, things are working out, and that the company continues to be the right fit.
