If a recruiter contacts you to interview a vacancy, it may be advantageous to know if the recruiter is working on a retainer or emergency basis. If it is the latter, chances are greater that you will be seriously considered for the position. When recruiters work on retainers, they can sometimes recruit candidates, although they are probably not well suited to give options to the employer. If the recruiter is working for emergency costs, he or she will probably not waste time interviewing candidates who are unlikely to be hired. Quota searches are by nature not exclusive, so it is not uncommon for several companies to work on the same research. Companies often use multiple recruitment agencies to maximize the number of CVs received. In addition, during these efforts, companies often conduct their own research or recruitment from within. Often, a company will see a flood of candidates (sometimes an adjustment and sometimes a course) in the first week of the search, because that`s what the recruiter had in his back pocket. When none of these candidates work, the recruitment manager often does not hear about the recruiter for many weeks. What for? Because they are working on another quota search in another place. You can`t really blame them. Recruiters work at the Commission and if they do not do internships, they cannot pay for their child`s football league. If you don`t feel obligated, why would you expect them to feel compelled to hire you? The company could also work with several other research companies with a “perhaps the best company” mentality of the company.
The lack of commitment on both sides is perhaps the best feature of this type of research. At the same time, it is also the worst feature. Think about it for a minute: do you really want to pay for a business just because you found the fastest average candidate and were the first to put your CV in your inbox? Work on a retained basis means that the staff officer charges the client an advance fee to conduct a search. They will work exclusively, which means that the position will only be filled by this recruitment agency. These recruiters work very closely with their client and take their time and use an agreed methodology to find the best person for the job. The process is generally rigorous with a shortlist of three to ten names that are presented before the interviews begin. In a perfect world, the hired recruiter will be able to present five candidates with ideal skills, location, salary, etc.
