The technical recruiting industry has rapidly changed over the past decade. What was once a “people” business, driven by relationships, has become transactional and volume based. Candidates have become names in databases, agencies one of 30 on a vendor list, judged by a KPI. A client is a priority number on a recruiter’s hot sheet based on the bill rate, fee percentage and ease of fill.
The days of understanding a candidates personal desires and career trajectory or an organization’s cultural nuances and technical environment have shifted to mass resume submissions, distribution lists, and vendor management systems. Generic job descriptions are the norm. Face to face meetings have been replaced with emails and resumes are doctored up to better match job descriptions.
Recruiting is an art and a science. The recipe for success does not lie in a company’s size or its tools but rather, in the people it employs. It takes talent to find and attract talent. Success in this industry depends on effective communication with all parties, while accurately and transparently managing expectations.
The art of human capital management and true client services is diminishing as staffing firms aim to streamline generic processes and build recruiting robots for scalability. Electronic communication dominates most forms of interaction. There is a need to bring the personal touch and know-how back into the industry and that is why Tech-Nique Partners was created.
