If you’re looking for a new employee and are working with financial and accounting recruiters, you might be tempted to get as many of them as possible working on the job at once. After all, if one set of eyes can be helpful, then five or ten of them should be just the thing to help you fill that opening with the perfect person and do it a lot faster… shouldn’t it?
Although that line of thinking is easy to understand on the surface, it doesn’t prove true in the real world. In fact, if you’re really serious about finding the perfect person for your opening, you should probably consider working with a dedicated Montréal financial recruiter and giving them an exclusive listing.
Are we making this recommendation because we don’t want to compete with other accounting recruiters in the area? Believe it or not, that isn’t really the issue. In fact, what it all comes down to is a matter of time and focus.
To see what we mean, consider two quick points:
It’s easier for financial recruiting companies to focus on exclusive listings. On the occasions when we know employers are drawing resumes from several recruiting teams, it doesn’t make sense for us to spend a lot of time and energy getting into the specifics of a project. But, when the client has tasked us with finding the perfect candidate, things change. Because we know our work won’t be duplicated, and they are serious about finding someone who can be a part of their team for years to come, we commit ourselves to making the right introduction. That means we can feel confident in sending our best two or three candidates.
Working with one recruiter means less time and hassle for you. Would you rather explain the needs and details of your opening once to someone that you’re expecting to bring you high-quality candidates, or several times in the hopes that you receive some resumes that are close to what you’re looking for? As important as efficiency is to assess financial recruiters, it means just as much to our clients. We don’t want them to waste their time and energy, not when we could be narrowing the search for them.
If you’re looking for the perfect financial or accounting candidate for your organization’s opening, then now might be the perfect time to talk to the expert team at Exceleris. With a focus on service and years of industry experience, we can help introduce you to the next member of your team.
