You’re a Recruiter. Or so your LinkedIn profile states…
But we both know that you’re so much more than that.
Being a Recruitment Consultant today, or to be a good one anyway, means that you must master many skills and wear many hats; employment coach, counsellor, copywriter, blogger, business development consultant, key account manager, researcher, CV writer, marketing consultant … the list goes on and on…
Let’s talk about Slack. Do you use it? Do you know what it is? Basically it’s a great tool for allowing people to communicate within organisations. It’s a lot more than just instant messaging though – did you realise it can also be used for recruiting? I know, right?

It’s all about people. It’s as simple as it is true. In our time of accelerating change, a company’s ability to source the right talent, and to do so at scale, will ever more determine its path – whether it leads towards future growth or towards failure.
The pressure is on, no doubt. In the 1950s, a Forbes500 company could expect to operate about 75 years; now it’s lifespan is down to 15. Owning dozens of patents or simply having access to capital and resources no longer cuts it.

It’s a well-known fact that most recruitment startups are founded by ex-recruiters that have done well for another company and feel that they can now go it alone. It’s an exciting journey, but of course, it’s hard going too. In the first 3 – 6 months, when your adrenalin is flowing, you’ll literally be able to work round the clock! However, before you know it, you quickly find yourself doing at least 10 different roles and wondering what a social life used to look like.
If you’ve ever wondered how good your recruitment process is, well luckily for you there are some metrics which can help you measure it. It’s handy to know how you compare to your biggest rival or maybe you just want to improve things. So do you rely on measuring the time to hire, the retention of employees, the cost of hire or maybe all of these.

Giving someone the benefit of the doubt means that you hold a positive opinion or judgement of a person because there is no reason for you to think otherwise. Here at Weirdly, we strongly believe that recruiters should give people the benefit of the doubt. This means that they can become the people you want them to be. Yet, increasingly, there are more and more examples of people assuming the worst in people and then actively going to look for proof.
