In the process of reading his article, I remembered that the recruitment process can get broken not just by Executive Recruiters but, rather, in at least three places by at least three sets of people:
After more than 20 years of recruitment experience, I can safely state the following three facts which I've personally observed:
- 1. Applicants DO make mistakes which can cost them a job
- 2. Recruiters DO make mistakes which can cost an applicant a job and a company an invaluable employees AND
- 3. Hiring Managers DO make mistakes which cost an applicant a job, a recruiter a paycheck, and a company an invaluable employee
Though we rarely hear about Numbers 3, ALL experienced Recruiters have stories about EACH of the above three categories.
- ALL Recruiters know of non-responsive applicants.
- ALL Recruiters know of other non-responsive Recruiters and
- ALL Recruiters know of non-responsive client companies.
So, is the Recruiter ALWAYS to blame when a hire isn't made?
Or is incumbent upon all involved in the recruitment process to remember that it is "a breakable process" - breakable by more than one person?
Thanks, and Keep STRONG!!
