Recruiting subscription services have lowered the bar for access to candidates, opening the floodgates of unscrupulous recruiters, looking for one-off placements. This has driven real, sought-after, talent ‘underground’, and even worse, this cycle is feed forward: the more recruiters contact candidates, the less responsive they are, and therefore the more this type of recruiter contacts candidates.
Additionally, most recruiters are not focused in a narrow area or area, and – being to broadly diversified – cannot understand job descriptions, technical details, or cultural or hiring manager requirements and preferences.
We identified that this happens more not just with non-employed candidates, but candidates who are looking for a new opportunity. And with few exceptions, we find the people other recruiters cannot – because they weren’t looking. Yet.
We dialogue with leads, and are more invested in an extraordinary fit than commission from a less-than-ideal fit.
So, come to us with your challenge, and throw down the gauntlet.
