Hiring can prove to be a time-consuming process. However, taking the time the time to do it right is incredibly worthwhile. A direct hire recruiter essentially serves as a hiring consultant. Their access to the local labor pool can help you pick the best candidates to fill your specific needs. Keep reading to learn when you may need assistance from a direct hire recruiter.

How does a direct hire recruiter choose candidates?

Recruiters uncover the skills you're looking for in a candidate to ensure a new hire is a great hire. Our recruiters at TruPath, for instance, go beyond the resume and work with more than just your job description. A recruiter must understand your culture to get a feel for the intangibles, like a candidate's personality or interests outside of work.

Consider having the recruiter meet with your hiring manager. Better yet, suggest they visit your location to see the work environment first-hand. Also, provide them with your requirements and presumed career progression for the candidate.

What responsibilities does a recruiter have?

Picture this: You're swamped at work. You don't have time to start a full-blown recruiting project. So, you call up a direct hire recruiter to get the ball rolling and find excellent candidates. Recruiters first take prospects through a screening process, either standard (criminal background check, salary verification, reference checks) or catered to your specific needs. Then, a recruiter will give you an overview of their qualifications, and an off-paper account of the potential hire.

Not only will the recruiter be honest and upfront with the person about the company, the position and what it encompasses, but candidates also tend to be more open with a recruiter than with an employer. This can help a recruiter dig deeper and discover traits and experiences not present on a resume.

How does a direct hire recruiter truly help you save time and money?

Recruiters help whittle down the candidate pool to the top candidates. This frees up time for you devote to business as usual and field just those weeded out resumes.
