The Lucky Checklist For a Successful Recruiter

In today’s war for talent, it can easily become a hectic environment for recruiters. It’s not like you can find a four-leaf clover and all your problems will be resolved. It can be great to have luck on your side, but sometimes you just need some help to guide you in the right direction. Here are 4 things to consider to help boost your luck in recruiting:

🍀 1. Understand Who You Are Hiring

This may seem like an obvious one, but this is easier said than done. It’s important to get a good fit for the role right from the start because a lot of employee turnover happens within the first 45 days of employment. To ensure you’re hiring the right person, recruiters need to:

  • Ensure job descriptions are realistic and clear.
  • Ask about their future plans, not just current skills. You want to hire someone who sees a future with you, not just a quick stint.
  • Focus on soft skills such as leadership, temperament, or emotional intelligence as well as technical capabilities.
  • Let the candidate ask questions and be honest with your answers. You want to accurately represent the job as well as assess their curiosity and attraction to the role.
