A fresh approach to recruiting



I wrote a post a couple of weeks ago on the process of recruiting, or at least on the process Career Solutions takes when it comes to agricultural recruiting. We feel that recruiters in the past have been given a bad rap, and some of them, I'm sure, deserve this reputation. But not all recruiters have the same ethics. We have four major categories in which we base our model on.

Perspective
  • We want long-term partnerships with our clients
  • Our responsibility is to ensure our clients hire the best people
  • Contingency only, as we only want to get paid for what we do
  • Do not recruit personnel currently employed by clients

Process
  • Client centered, we build the process around the client
  • Thorough needs assessment that may include an onsite visit
  • Detailed screening of candidates, we do not blast resumes
  • Our internal sharing of candidates creates a larger selection

People
  • Each recruiter is specialized by industry sector and/or region
  • We utilize a professional, ethical, hands on approach
  • All information is treated with the highest confidentiality
  • We are flexible and available to meet your schedule

Product
  • We save time and money by freeing up internal resources
  • Our diverse and extensive network of candidates
  • Our industry knowledge can be tapped for data/trends
  • We assist with scheduling interviews and providing feedback

How we work means a great deal to us from working with our clients to working with our candidates. We want to do things the right way here at Career Solutions, and if that's what you're into, then it's time for a deeper conversation.

Have you had any less than great recruiting experiences? We'd like to hear about them.
