DT Thought Leadership Featured on Huffington Post: Recruiters To The Rescue: Keep Everyone From Being Burned In A White-Hot Talent Market

Decision Toolbox’s recent blog post Recruiters To The Rescue: Keep Everyone From Being Burned In A White-Hot Talent Market was recently featured on the Huffington Post.

Excerpt from the article:

Unemployment continues to decline while business continues to expand. Demand outstrips supply in almost every niche of the talent market. For everyone involved, it’s tempting to do whatever it takes, without considering consequences. This is the second in a three-part series on the importance of talent market etiquette, especially when the market is on fire. Check out my last post for advice to candidates. Now let’s look at the recruiter’s role.

As liaison between employers and candidates, recruiters are constantly juggling competing priorities. Working with candidates who have multiple offers can make it seem like going from juggling rubber balls to juggling machetes. But recruiters also are uniquely positioned to protect the interests of both sides — including protecting employers and candidates from themselves.

In this situation, knowledge is power. Recruiters often are under the pressure of ABC — always be closing — but if you push Candy Candidate through even though she’s not a good fit, she may not stay more than a couple of months. Then you and your client are right back where you started. To balance the ABCs, recruiters need to dig in, from the beginning, to be clear on the Who, What, When, Where and Why.
