Lucky for you, there are staffing agencies across the country that can help keep your business thriving. We know that the hiring process can take a lot of time out of your busy schedule as a business owner. That’s why hiring one of the best recruiting and staffing agencies in Philadelphia can help you get some relief you may need. At Kane Partners, our team of headhunters can find the right candidate for your open job position. You might be wondering how we can. Let’s look at some of the tools headhunters, including ours, use to find the perfect candidates for jobs in different types of industries.
The most obvious way headhunters can find potential candidates for you is by going through the resumes applicants have submitted to your open job listing on Indeed, ZipRecruiter, etc. Whether there are only ten or there are one hundred resumes to sort through, recruiters will read each and every one of them to find the right candidate for you, so you don’t have to. Resumes show an applicant’s professional experience, skills, certifications, and education. They can also reveal what the applicant is passionate about and what they’ve accomplished, showing you both the personal and professional side of themselves.
When you hire a staffing agency, you can provide a list of requirements you want in the perfect candidate. Looking through a resume, headhunters, will look for these requirements and ensure they only move forward with the ones who meet all of them. Once they find the applicants who meet all of the requirements, they will schedule and conduct an interview. The headhunters will then give you detailed notes on the potential candidates and you can finish the hiring process once you pick the best applicant.
LinkedIn is a social network for business and career professionals either seeking a job or seeking new employees. With more than 500 million members scattered around the globe using LinkedIn, headhunters can find some of the greatest candidates for you to choose from. As a job seeker, LinkedIn is such a great place to connect with those who have similar skills and to connect with businesses around the world. Job seekers can make a profile and include their previous jobs, the education they’ve completed, and the skills they gained. With all of these added to their public profile, recruiting and staffing agencies can find exactly who they’re looking for when they search for those who have the requirements necessary for your open job. Once they find someone, they can message them and share your job position to start the conversation. Instead of waiting days or weeks for people to apply for your company, the headhunters you hire will seek potential candidates themselves. Seeking applicants instead of waiting for them can save a lot of time, especially if people aren’t looking in the right place or don’t know you’re hiring.
Not everyone uses LinkedIn and, if they do, it might not be up-to-date. But, in 2022, many people’s social media accounts are up-to-date and may showcase their skills and past jobs. Headhunters search all over the internet to find perfect candidates for business owners like you and that doesn’t stop at social media, including Facebook or Twitter. On these particular social networks, the headhunters you hire can learn more about potential contenders they are interested in reaching out to them. They can learn more about their personal life or cultural learnings, which might be something you are looking for in a candidate. You may want to ensure the potential employee(s) you hire have the same values and goals as your company or you may just want to make sure they are the right person for both the job and the culture of the company. With social media, recruiting and staffing agencies can find the right candidate based on their professional and personal life.
Job boards are the perfect place to look for potential candidates. Many people share their resumes through these boards and are looking for any job with requirements that meets their credentials. Headhunters can sort through the many job seekers who may be looking for jobs in your particular industry even if they aren’t currently looking for a job or don’t see your listing when they are job searching. Headhunters can find those who aren’t currently seeking a new job at the moment and can still offer them an opportunity to interview for it if they have the specified requirements. Without the help from headhunters, you are only getting the applicants on your job listing, which isn’t the full potential list.
Applicant Tracking Systems
On an applicant tracking system (ATS), you can post your company’s open positions directly on the job boards. You can promote this listing on your business’s social media as well to expand the radar. The recruiters you hire can track where the applicants are coming from before they review and interview them. ATS can be a great asset because it allows headhunters to track where applicants come from, so you can find out which platform job seekers use the most in your industry today. With social media and amazing employer hiring platforms, the perfect candidate can come from anywhere, so it’s important to have all your bases covered. If you don’t, you might miss a great opportunity to improve your business’s culture.
Headhunters have a ton of connections they’ve made over the years and networking is one of their biggest skills, especially when it comes to seeking potential new employees for businesses. Along with a long list of connections, recruiting and staffing agencies use networking events to connect with even more people. These events give them the opportunities to find those who might not know you’re hiring or know your company at all.
By hiring a recruiting and staffing agency and supplying them with your business cards, there can potentially be more open discussions about your business and the current open positions you are listing. This can lead to an increased list of potentially interested job seekers. Even if they don’t have the right requirements or aren’t interested, they may know someone who does and can refer this information to them. Networking is something headhunters are known for and it can benefit you greatly.
