Recently I recieved a question on linkedin from a friend. His question was, “How are recruiters evaluated on the interview performance, or rate of hire, of the applicants they select for interviews? Is this tracked in any organizations?”
This is a very interesting question. Recruiters have made a good living in the recession. It’s been helpful for people to find a guide and have someone coach them up before an interview. I know how good it feels to have others on your team in a time of uncertainty.
Many recruiters are execptionally good and very professional, but I bet there are a few job seekers who have less than choice words for their experience with job recruiters.
I don’t claim to have an opinion on recruiters because I know the idea behind the profession is help and there is nothing wrong with helping people accomplish their goals. I bet if many recruiters could do their job for free, they would but unfortunately, good deeds don’t pay rent or put food on the table.
So my question now turns to recruiters, what ways can job seekers know you’re crediable, reliable and sincere in helping their job search?
Is there an organization you’re apart of that shows a certain level of credibility?
Do you have a win-loss record on file or even in your own personal records?
What warning signs of quality can a job seeker use to know if a recruiter is right for them?
I hope to get some answers from recruiters because, this is everyone’s reputation, not simply that of the good or bad.
