In this session, we will talk about the things that every recruiter, staffing manager, HR professional or sourcer can do to make the most of the little time that they have with the hiring manager and a checklist of what they should be walking away with from a req meeting. We will talk about how to write the best job requisitions, how to ask the right questions of the hiring manager, and what the best ways are to target profiles.
Hiring managers are sometimes under-appreciated people. They have the stress of meeting headcount for a company, doing it within budget, and if they are involved in the development of a company’s product, their team still has to produce on time. Sometimes the stress of these things combined can affect the communication between the hiring manager and the staffing organization.
We will also talk about what to do when you hit road blocks. There may be times when you have to pitch a different candidate profile to a hiring manager. We will talk about when and how this can be successfully done. And we will also discuss how to deal with a candidate pool that is well out of your budget range.
