How to find a right employee?
Sometimes companies find themselves in a situation where they need to find an employee for a new position or replace an old worker. Replacing a person that already worked in a position is easier than finding a worker for the brand new vacancy. However, it still might be time-consuming. If you are in such situation and are looking for an employee you have two options:
Option no. 1
Look for an employee yourself. This might proof to be a lengthy and costly process, especially if you are looking for a highly skilled employee. Even if your company runs a big HR department responsible for hiring new workers chances are that they might not ask candidates the right questions. As a result, you will employ an unsuitable person.
Option no. 2
Hire a professional headhunting company that will find the right candidate for you.
Now, if you decided to go with option no. 2 you probably wonder how recruitment agency will look for the worker suitable for the position you are trying to fill.
Type of candidate
Headhunters usually divide the entire labour market into three categories:
#1 Active job seekers
This category contains about 20% of the entire labour market and consists of people who actively are looking for a job. They can be either currently unemployed or so unhappy with their job that they are sending CV and browsing published job offers.
#2 Inactive job seekers interested in other opportunities
These people are generally happy with their employment and are not looking for another job themselves. However, when approached with the right offer they will be interested in potentially pursuing the new opportunity. Whooping 60% of entire labour market consists of this type of employees.
#3 Inactive job seekers not interested in other opportunities
Such an employee is very happy with his current job. So much so, that he wouldn’t be interested in changing it at all. These kinds of people consider their work to be a dream job or are partial owners of the company they work for. Such employees consist of 20% of the labour market.
Who do headhunting companies approach?
Generally, most of the recruiting agencies approach the first category of the labour market which is active job seekers. Since it is such a small segment of the labour market, finding a right candidate might take some time and proof to be dificult.
When persuing active job seekers not only a large portion of time is spent on waiting to get a response from published job offers, often candidates that reply to advertisements don’t quite meet the criteria.
