In the previous installment I explained that, as a recruiter, it’s as simple as following a plan.
The placement process is an integral part of that plan. It applies to you because you want to be successful and make more money, right? Anything worth doing is worth doing well. Yeah, I know that’s an old cliche’ but there’s no getting around it. Even in this digital age, some things just can’t be skipped.
So here are the steps in the placement process:
- Contact with Employer 1. Contact with Job Seeker
- Job Order 2. Interview with the Job Seeker
- Evaluate 3. Evaluate
- CROSS MATCH (the Job Order with the Job Seeker)
- Prepare/Confirm 5. Prepare/Confirm
- JOB INTERVIEW
- Follow up/Closing 7. Follow Up/Closing
Let me give you an analogy. Let’s say you have a new baby and she has to be changed multiple times a day. Right now it’s your turn because Mommy is taking a much-deserved nap. You’re not real good at this yet, but you gather the items you need: diaper, baby wipes, baby lotion or powder, towel and whatever else you’re supposed to use. But wait! The baby … because everything starts with her and builds from there.
OK, maybe that’s a little corny but you get the picture. There has to be a sequence for it to be successful.
Until next time, keep moving forward. More information on the Placement Process can be found in my Ebook.
