Working with Recruiters (hot tip)

This morning I wanted to briefly discuss crafting a job description (needs analysis) when working with recruiters.

To help you - as a recruiter I will definitely want to know about the core competencies required for the job, experience level required, educational background etc and why the vacancy exists. But I will also want to know who else is on the team and for how long, what are their strengths and weaknesses? What would happen if one of them left...what is the next most critical skill set required?

A good recruiter will ask a LOT of questions. We want to know and understand what you really need. Sometimes you won't know and that's ok. We work together to find out.

So the next time you have a vacancy begin to think about other members of the team, their core competencies and strengths, so the new hire is a complement to the team instead of just the new hire.

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
