About recruitment agents
Recruitment agents like many other businesses are under pressure to be competitive. They need to communicate effectively with both recruiters and applicants to ensure they have a pipeline of vacancies to fill and good applicants to choose from. Good recruiters have a great understanding of the businesses they recruit for and the industry they work in. They have to have not only an indepth understanding of the role but also the culture of the company in order to select the type of applicants that would excel in the environment. Recruitment agents tend to recruit natural sales people with great people skills who can both sell in candidates and roles where they see a good fit.
How technology has changed their processes
As technologies have evolved so have the advertising and communication techniques of recruitment agents. At one time applicants used to fill in application forms by hand, were tested on key skills and interviewed face to face, much of this process has gone online.
At the same time jobs are now widely advertised on the internet and head hunters regularly use social media sites to find the right candidates in similar roles elsewhere.
