The Internet vs. A Refined Executive Recruiting Experience

executive recruitingIt’s no surprise that in today’s fast-paced and digitized world that job seekers and employers alike use job application sites to get their name out into the industry they embody. While it’s more comfortable and frequently more convenient to use the Internet to recruit, we urge you to consider how important a personal experience through executive recruiting can impact your results and the process of finding new employees as a whole. Some necessary comparisons prove just how effective our methods are versus the World Wide Web.

The Internet:

Lets you list qualifications in a short amount of space on job postings to make it digestible for seekers.

Recruiters:

Instead of making a note of for a few necessary qualifications and getting to work, an executive recruiter will take the time to get to know your company on a deeper level and use them during our search. You’ll feel free enough to discuss your hopes and expectations at length, paving the way for a smoother process.

The Internet:

Doesn’t have a personal approach and each job feels like one amongst many.

Recruiters:

Go above and beyond just explaining expectations. When we work with job seekers, we look for qualifications that go deeper than online postings. We’ll seek key personality traits to efficiently gauge how well they’ll fit into the open position and company. 

The Internet:

Gets you potential employees that may not feel like the right fit in person.

Recruiters:

Know that getting to know someone’s personality can be just as valid and essential as seeing their résumé. By assessing personality traits during the executive recruiting process, we get the whole picture of a candidate instead of their bulleted lists. The more you look for personal characteristics that you admire, the happier you will be to work with a potential employee when they enter your business.

The Internet:

Allows people who may not fit the job position to access or even apply to your company.

Recruiters:

Eliminates the middle man and gravitate straight toward people who embody all of the necessary skills and qualities you desire in a potential employee. We only present people that we feel represent your company’s mission and work ethic to you, which is why our method is so useful.
