nsultants use to scare you into giving them your money, instead of using it on some much more cost-effective and proven things like:
1.Improving your career-site and application process,
2.Setting up a gamefied ERP,
3.Using a low-cost & high quality RPO to get you job board and internet resumes/get contact info of LI profiles,
4.Using carefully-targeted direct sourcing of the people you want,
5.Hiring a contract recruiter, etc.
IMHO, telling an employer that they need to hire as quickly as is efficient is like having to tell guys leaving a men's room to examine their zippers- it's sometimes necessary, but should be obvious to most....
I’ve pointed out in the past that if an employer has an unfilled job there are basically two things they can do:
1) Make the job more attractive (money, benies, QoWL, telecommuting, stock, free food, SOMETHING more than the marketing hype of deluded wannabe, also-ran, and has-been companies) to the people you want to hire.
2) If you can’t/won’t do that- settle for who you can get at the price (etc.) you’re willing to pay.
I’ve also said on occasion:
“If you’re in a situation where you have a position(s) that’s unfillable at ANY price etc. then not only are you ******, but you’ve ****** yourself, AND you’re an idiot for getting into that situation.
