There are many ways that a recruiter can help you with an executive search. Whether you are looking for the next VP of Marketing, a CEO, a CFO, or any other executive position, it is important to find the right match. If you do not have the time and patience to dedicate to the search, it is better left to a corporate recruiter. They are trained in finding high-end employees and can ensure that you find the right person for the job. |
Not sure you want to spend the money on an executive search? Here are three reasons why you need to lead a recruiter do the work for you.
#1: Save You Time
You are going to save time when you hire a recruiter to help you with the executive search. Especially when you begin looking for higher salaried employees, there are going to be a lot of people submitting their resume – even if they are not qualified. You shouldn’t have to spend the time digging through thousands of resumes in order to find one person. A recruiter is going to search the resumes for you so that you don’t have to worry about it.
Even after you search through all of the resumes, you are going to spend time with preliminary interviews. While someone may look great on paper, they may not look so great after you conduct a preliminary interview. The recruiter is going to help with this area as well. This means that once a person finally gets in front of you, they are completely qualified in every area.
#2: Obtain Qualified Individuals
Qualified individuals are hard to come by. You need someone that has the education, the experience, and the personality to work within your company’s dynamic. The culture found within your company is a big deal and if you don’t find someone who is going to mesh well with that culture, you are going to be replacing the person sooner rather than later. You already know that turnover is extremely expensive and a recruiter is going to minimize the chances of turnover by conducting your executive search with all of your criteria in mind.
#3: Find You a Temporary Fill
You may not have the time to conduct a full executive search for a CFO, VP of Marketing, or any other high-end position because you need the spot filled immediately. This doesn’t mean you have to settle. If you speak with a recruiter, they will be able to find you a temporary fill. This means that someone is qualified and they are going to work on contract. This gives you the freedom to conduct a search to the fullest extent and find somebody that is qualified for the long term.
The next time you need to complete an executive search, stop wasting the time going through the resumes on your own. You need to find someone quickly and who is completely qualified. When you hand the responsibility over to a corporate recruiter, they can do the work for you.
