If you are a job seeker or a company with a position to fill, you know how difficult it can be to have your needs met. Job seekers want to fit into the company and have fulfilling work in a positive corporate culture. Companies want trained, punctual employees that will become part of the team and work well with others. Yet, with resumes to write, training to upgrade and companies to run, both parties find the job search and recruitment process to be stressful and time consuming. This is why executive recruitment is the service for you.
What is executive recruitment?
Executive recruitment is handled by firms that specialize in matching job candidates with positions. This is not a simple process in which resumes are handed off through a third party. Both the company and the candidates are heavily scrutinized. Only through investigation and analysis can the ideal match be made. It is not enough for a candidate to have the skills required to fill a role. The candidate must also fit into the company’s work environment and mesh well with the existing team.
Why executive recruitment?
It’s difficult to find a job and once you find it, what happens if you don’t like it? The whole job hunting process goes on again. From a job seeker’s point of view, this is frustrating, time consuming, discouraging and costly (printing resumes, cabs or gas to go to interviews, researching companies, etc). From a company’s point of view, this is very expensive. When someone starts and stops a job, the funds lost in finding and training a replacement are considerable. Wouldn’t it be better if the perfect seeker was matched with the perfect position? Both parties save time and money when they use an executive recruitment firm.
What else can these firms do?
Executive recruitment firms provide analysis of the workplace, a complete profile for each candidate, assistance in offer negotiation, intervention if required for challenging situations, relocation budgets, and more. Services vary among executive recruitment firms, so be sure to find the one that best suits your needs.
Some executive recruitment firms specialize in overseas or long distance placement. This is especially useful for those that will need to become quickly acclimatized to a new culture. As a job seeker, could you imagine trying to find a job in another country without knowing about the cost of living, the customs, the taxes and more? As a company, wouldn’t you like to feel comfortable knowing the candidate moving to your country is a good fit and will not be leaving within weeks to pursue another job? Executive recruitment firms that specialize in long distance placement remove the stress and worry about the unique challenges of long distance work moves.
Ready to become more efficient in your job/candidate search?
Executive recruitment firms are professionals and specialists in their fields. You trust a professional for medical advice, dental work, and legal paperwork and accounting services, so why not trust your job search or candidate needs to the professionals as well? It is a smart business decision and a wise career move to let the professionals match ideal people with ideal jobs.
