Using an External Recruiter for your next Hire

No matter how great the job, finding top-tier talent to fill your vacant position can be difficult; proving to be exhausting mentally, emotionally, and financially.

While companies regularly feel that they are better off conducting these searches on their own, utilizing an external recruiter can help you navigate a lot of these challenges and save your Human Resources team, or hiring manager, a huge headache.

External Recruiters can save your Human Resources department a lot of time, allowing them to focus on their other duties. HR departments can often get overrun with resumes, leaving them combing through applications for hours on end.

Using an External Recruiter ensures that the resumes your HR department does see are those of first-class candidates. Having Recruiters conduct these searches and preliminary interviews helps you focus on the finer details.

Additionally, external Recruiters have their fingers on the pulse of the industry and marketplace… I mean, it’s their job. They have a multitude of contacts to work from and have an ever-growing knowledge of hiring trends in the industry. They know which companies are hiring, downsizing, or holding tight, they also know where the top talent is on the market.

Partnering with a recruiting firm will provide your company access to this information and expertise.

Often, there’s an attractive candidate you have in mind but can’t necessarily contact, and nobody likes a poacher. Utilizing an External Recruiter allows you to connect with individuals that you would otherwise not be able to due to contractual constraints or industry standards.

Whatever your challenge may be, Rostie & Associates can help you overcome it. With nearly 30 years of experience, Rostie & Associates are the perfect partners for your next opening.

Rostie Toxic Relationship

Leaving a “Toxic Relationship”

The interview is going so well and then, the dreaded question……
”why are you looking at other opportunities”.?

Do you lie, come up with an excuse or tell the truth that you cannot stand to look at your manager for another second!

While I believe honesty is always the best policy, admitting you wish he’d “take a long walk off a short pier” is probably not the way to go!

Unfortunately, it happens. You end up working for someone you don’t like and they may not like you. You simply don’t click and that’s okay, and probably the reason you’re looking for a new job.

However, as they say, words matter.

Hopefully you can honestly say that you have been very fortunate to have worked for, and mentored by a number of amazing managers and that you are able to take something positive away from this experience – you learned something, worked with an amazing team, or sold great product with a leading organization.

Whatever it is, keep it positive and professional and you’ll sail through that interview with flying colours!

If you’re looking to move on from one of these relationships, check out our available positions. 

When a Recruiter Calls…

Contributor:  Pamela Inglis, Recruiter – Rostie & Associates

You know the call, as soon as you hear it’s a recruiter on the other end of the phone there’s a good chance that the first thing you say is “thanks, but I’m not looking”. Fair enough. The majority of the people we call are happy in their current role. But does that mean you shouldn’t take a few minutes to find out what they’re calling about? It may not be for you but perhaps you have a friend that’s on the market or maybe, just maybe, it’s your dream job.

It may not be the time for you to make a move, maybe not the right role, but why not take a few minutes and get to know us a little. Hopefully you’ll never be in the position where you have to find another job, but eventually you may want to. And we’ll be here…waiting for your call.
