Getting the Most Out of Your Recruiting Efforts
In an effort to find top candidates to interview for a position, some hiring managers think it best to hire a half dozen or even more recruiters to scour the planet. They think they will have more candidates to interview in less time than if they worked with just one recruiter.
Years ago, I was involved in just such a situation when a sales manager called asking if I could find a PhD Dairy Nutritionist for their animal feed supplement company. He mentioned that he’s highly selective and had 10 other recruiters currently looking for candidates. I didn’t want to be the 11th and politely told him so, thanking him for his call.
