How Our Recruiters Are Changing Candidate’s Lives
The road to the perfect hire can be rocky to say the least. It takes focus, persistence and wisdom. Recruiters and other HR professionals that don't use innovative recruiting strategies are often unable to find job candidates that are suitable for their open positions. With all the changes and advances in HR technologies, there are many new solutions for some of the biggest recruiting challenges, and many are now implementing these new solutions to improve their hiring strategies and find job candidates easier and faster.
In addition, recruiters play several roles in this process - they represent their organizations as brand ambassadors, customer service representatives, truth seekers and talent identifiers. The amount of work they put into making sure employers hire the best individual is a form of art never fully understood by those outside the profession.
In appreciation to all the recruiters out there, we asked our recruitment specialists to share their most successful hiring story:
- Success Story #1 - Finding The One
“Every project I am closing I am very proud of because it means I have done my job, and everyone is happy with the result, but the project that I am most proud of is when I was looking for business coordinator. I am very proud of closing this project because it seemed hard at the beginning because of poor communication from the client side. I had all the information I needed to start recruitment process, but agreement was not signed so it was on hold for some time. Once we had all the documentation ready, it took me 3 interviews and 2 candidates to send over to the client to get a result – successful selection. From the moment I met this candidate in my interview I knew she is THE ONE, the right candidate and I was so happy that my feeling was right and very soon she will start working at the company. Being this middle person between satisfied client and happy candidate is what makes me proud” - Līva, Junior Recruiter.
- Success Story #2 - Lifechanging Moment
“This candidate was kind of special. I had the interview at a very difficult time in my life and I was actually thinking of rescheduling, but I didn’t want to let this situation influence my work and my success, so I had the interview and it went very well. The candidate loaded me with positive energy, and after a long interview process, he got a job offer. Now we are waiting for him to relocate, and I am happy that I did that interview despite of everything. This was my first closed project, and I am very proud of it because I could push myself even if I really didn’t feel like it. At the end I got rewarded with a candidate who is now changing his life drastically with moving to another continent. I’m happy that I was involved in this lifechanging moment for him” - Lāsma, Junior Recruiter.
