4 Reasons to Hire an IT Recruiter

Reasons to Hire an IT Recruiter


Recruiters can help to define the job description.

Partner with a recruiter, and you will get help with refining the job description and defining the qualifications (must have versus “like to have”).   Who better to help you determine your required qualifications, than a recruiter who knows the labor market and views/defines job descriptions daily!

Recruiters will keep you focused.

Let’s face it… at the end of the day, your job is not recruiting/hiring.  You are busy and wear many hats; recruiting is rarely at the top of your “to do” list.    A recruiter’s primary focus is to find you top talent as quickly as possible. This saves you time and allows you to focus on other projects.

Recruiters will ultimately save you money.  True story!

This really comes back to focus.  Why have your managers searching LinkedIn and other social media sites, reviewing unqualified candidates?  Recruiters allow managers to stay focused on driving the business and projects, while they find you the top talent talent you seek.

An open or unfilled job can cost a company financially.  Every week that a position remains unfilled, a company risks stunted growth and the possibility of current employees leaving due to being overworked. Recruiters expedite the hiring process by only presenting pre-qualified candidates.  This will save you time…and time is money.

Recruiters know where to look.

Recruiters are heavily networked and connected.  They are aware of people seeking new opportunities.  They not only participate, but lead networking events, and are regularly contacted directly by job seekers looking to make a change.  Talent will typically find a recruiter before they find a hiring manager.
