Improve the candidates pool
A huge candidates pool is a must for recruitment agency. There is some way that recruitment agency can improve their candidates pool like invest time and build relationship with college and university placement office. College and university have large amount of fresh graduate and talent where is will be a good investment for recruitment agency where they can get the information of candidates at first timing. Other than that, fully utilize information on LinkedIn or other social media to find as many potential candidates as possible for the agency candidates pool.
Hire the sure thing
Sometimes for recruitment agency, you have to trust on your instinct when choosing potential candidates. It may be a gamble when choosing potential candidates with untested talent that grab your attention but your instinct may guide you to the right way. It is not recommended to rely on instinct every time when choosing potential candidates but choose candidates with proven skillset, record and background will get the job done.
Look in-house first
Many will ask why you go for in-house first? There are lots of potential candidates at the market and in-house only got few candidates only. The reason you going for in-house first is because the skillset and background of in-house candidates has already tested and know well of it. You can easily match them with the most suitable company. If you go “outside first”, the in-house candidates will feel that opportunities are not for them first and their confidence level will drop and affect their working performance.
The nature of human is want to have more perceived value than value that paid. Therefore, recruitment agency has to make sure they are at the top of the industry by offer competitive value to candidates like get hired in short time or 100% hired rate. This will increase the chance of candidates finding the agency to help them find job where the company has good reputation in the industry.
