I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I'm a career coach who helps people with job search, hiring,
more effectively managing and leading I work in a whole host of gamuts related
to being effective in the workforce and someone asked me why do some companies
not want to work with recruiters let me put aside the idea of having a bad
experience. We can have a bad experience a whole host of different places but
some firms make that decision because they've had a bad experience with a
recruiter with a recruiter and the person they've hired from that firm
things along those lines usually the big reason is cost they believe they can do
it more cheaply and I understand the logic behind it $100,000 a year person
may cost them 20% of salary or $20,000 25% of salary
$25,000, 30% of salary $30,000 or more.. And, as a result, they look around and
think they can, you know, for example, take out an agreement with LinkedIn for much
less than that and then their labor costs for finding someone or much less
than that to fill that one job they may not fully know how to price in the cost
of staff if they're doing it on their own to do the initial pre-screening to
respond to all those people no matter it seems to be a cost thing for most of
them. As a result, I'm not sure if they're right. I worked as a recruiter for more
than 40 years I helped a lot of firms narrow the scope of who they would
evaluate pretty well. I thought I created value for my clients
Some disagreed. Most were pleased. No matter that's the
real reason why it happens now I've got much more on YouTube which you can find
At JobSearchTV.com and, if you have questions, there are thousands of videos
that are about job search, hiring managing and leading. I hope you enjoy them.
They're, by the way, they're organized by playlist so you can look for different
things have a great day and come over to the channel and take care
