Finding An Ideal Recruit

The employees of an organization are its most valuable assets. An HR’s job is a vital one for this matter as he/she makes the most important decision of whom to select and whom to reject from the vast horde of applicants who apply for a post. Though different companies have different selection as well as interview processes, the basic principle remains the same i.e. to find the most competent and qualified person for the job. In such a case there are a few pointers which can be followed by a HR to arrive at a prudent choice.

Preliminary Research
As it is with any task, proper research is vital for this process of searching out an ideal candidate for a job. The interviewer should take out time and peruse the cover letter and resume of the candidate thoroughly before the interview. This would help the interviewer draw up some relevant questions about the applicant.

Make the Applicant Comfortable
Make the atmosphere friendly and approachable so that the interviewee feels at ease and is able to express himself clearly. In a high pressure situation like a job interview, candidates often get stressed and are unable to perform upto their potential. It is an interviewer’s responsibility to lighten the atmosphere and make it ideal for a free exchange of thoughts and idea.

Relevant Questions
The interviewer should try and get the interviewees to open up and express themselves effectively. As far as possible, questions asked should be open ended ones which encourage the interviewee to give a detailed reply. Also the interviewer should keep the interviewee’s other interests/hobbies in perspective and ask relevant question to arrive at a balanced decision. The body language of the applicant should be observed as they can be helpful in providing clues about the interviewee.

Lastly the interviewer should encourage the applicant to ask questions about the company, the work culture etc. All these points are a great help when it comes to choosing an appropriate applicant for the job.

Recruiters As the Mediator

Recruiters act as the bridging gap between the candidate and the hiring company. It is the job of the recruiter to hunt for the candidates who fits like a lid to the air-tight jar to the hiring company.

Recruiter and the candidate
While dealing with the recruiters, the candidates need to keep in mind that the recruiter aims at serving the hiring company to the most. The interest of the recruiter lies in the satisfaction of the hiring company. It is not that the recruiters are there to take advantage of the candidates or the recruiters befool the candidates. But the candidates need to adopt the trick of dealing with the recruiters. The candidates ought to assert their own interests while negotiating with the professional recruiters.

But, it is not that the recruiters are there to dismantle the candidate’s benefits. The candidates and the mediators are not at the extreme ends. Indirectly in the motive of the recruiters lies the very interest of the candidates. The ultimate aim of the hiring consultants is to make the hiring company meet with the apt candidates. When the job is done successfully, all the three parties are benefited.

Recruiters and the hiring company
Recruiters are there to make the companies meet with the candidates perfect for the goals of the set up. To filter the right candidates, the professional recruiters are hired. The recruiters give a list of suitable candidates, and sometimes also scan and take interviews. The interview is to know whether the candidates are interested in the job or not. The hiring companies avail the service of recruiters in two broad ways:

Contingency: In this type of arrangement between the two parties, the recruiters are paid only when the suitable and interested candidates are actually hired. This arrangement is generally for the positions not of very high level. The positions for which candidates can be easily fetched, and the profile does not call for very specialized skills or expertise.

Retained: In this mode of payment arrangement, the recruiters are paid a retainer fee in advance. This is to get specialized candidates to high level positions. Even if the recruiters fail to get the right candidate for the executive position, the retainer fee is not taken back. Sometimes the recruiters have to target the specific candidates, and convince him to join the company for which the recruiter is working.

The relationship between the recruiters, hiring company and the candidates is that of mutual dependence. The candidates and the hiring companies need to maintain a favorable relationship with the recruiters. The recruiters can be of great help in consorting the candidates and the hiring company complementing one another.
