As a valued client, here are a few tips on how to get the most out of your recruiter when searching for applicants.

Meet Your Recruiter in Person
Taking time to establish a relationship with a recruiter by meeting in person can help to make sure you are both on the same page. This will help establish a mutual understanding that can be a great asset to your company.

Be Clear and Direct When Communicating Your Staffing Needs
When discussing current staffing needs with your recruiter, take time to fully describe the position, including any and all tasks to be performed, and special or technical skills you expect a qualified applicant to have. It is always better to be specific—this will put the recruiter in an excellent position to judge the fitness of potential employees.  Be sure to share any additional insights or concerns about the position, including past experiences both positive and negative.

Be Open to Feedback
Because recruiters are often very well-versed in local job markets and the current marketplace, they may be able to provide you with valuable feedback about the type of applicants available, timeframes for locating talent, and realistic salary or benefits based on your desired candidates. This information may help you fine-tune your criteria and facilitate timely recruitment.
