Give yourself a moment to check the ugly recruiter experience post from 37 signals and the feel-good story from Senzee 5. US-based but very topical for us in this region, as the candidate shortage persists and recruiters try harder than ever.
Takeaways for recruiters/consultants:
- people write online about their experiences with recruiters/agencies, whether they are good or bad
- bad experiences impact you personally as a recruiter as well as your company/agency
- people will be quick to pick up if you are lazy or false when attempting to personalise your marketing to potential candidates
- as a recruiter, you need to get out of your way to stand out in front of high calibre professionals
