1st resource not last resort
“Have you got an vacancies?” Don’t you just hate it when recruitment agencies call and ask that question? Moreover, it’s an invitation for the agency to fall flat on their face, because if you have – they may not have the particular expertise to fill it.
So why do we do it? Well it’s a poor excuse for engaging with Employers. We all know when we get on the dreaded phone (we all have to do it at some point) that you need a reason for calling. The recruiter’s reason for calling is generally new business. So in their defence, there is a reason behind it, albeit a poorly planned call.
How can you stop this barrage of lame telesales calls? Simple! (no cute Meerkat, sorry). Use us as your first resource, not a last resort.
We deal with SO many companies, who try to beat us down on price, because they have already spent a chunk of their recruitment budget advertising and sifting themselves. A good recruitment agency will do ALL of this for you. Plus you won’t pay a penny until someone starts. So, ok you may have them search for a week and nothing comes of it – but all you have lost is the time, not the time AND money you lost last time when you looked yourself.
