As promised in my last post, today I’m going to share with you what happened to me early in my recruiting career.
I always focused on the client and not so much on the candidate. I felt they should jump through hoops or I wouldn’t work with them. Wrong thinking!
As recruiters, we always need to create as much balance as possible because we walk a fine line between the client and candidate. Our goal is to exceed the expectations of both.
When I began to fall short of my goals more often than I liked, I decided to step back and see what I might be missing in my recruiting process. Finally, when I was able to isolate the cause of not treating the candidate and client equally, I knew that was the problem. The solution is what I call the R.O.W. process.
When I decided to balance each side of the placement process, both the client and candidate, I knew I needed to find out what each of them Required, Offered, and how we would Work together, i.e., R.O.W.
Once I started implementing this daily, I finally reached my goals for the first time. It’s been part of my recruiting strategies ever since.
