Need advice on recruiting unemployed candidates for short-term temporary assignments (I am in California)

I have had a reoccurring issue with recruiting unemployed candidates for temporary positions because most candidates state that these assignments will interrupt their unemployment benefits. Obviously, they will not collect unemployment for the duration of their temporary assignment; however they should be able to resume their benefits once their temporary assignment is complete. Is there a resource, or any literature that I can refer concerned candidates to in order to assure them they will be…See More

Hi HR/Corporate Recruiter! It's Me, the "Different Agency Recruiter"?

Posted on May 23, 2013 at 7:30pm 25 Comments

Hello again, everyone! Since the last discusson was very informative, I want to pick the brains of corporate recruiters now. Since I am an agency recruiter and new to client development, I want to know the opinions of recruiters on "the other side" of the game.

I know HR and corporate recruiters are tired of being approached by one agency after another saying that they are "different" and can provide some sort of magical recruiting service that the rest cannot. When I call HR and…

Why Did My Potential Client Disappear?

Posted on May 21, 2013 at 10:15am 30 Comments

She told me she was looking for a corporate recruiter that has experience specific to the industry she works in. Within a day, I found her an AMAZING candidate (name blocked out of course because at that…

What do Your Commission Plans and Metrics Look Like?

Posted on March 9, 2013 at 1:30am 12 Comments

I'm wondering what different agency commission plans look like. Do you have to meet metrics to be eligible for commission? 

My metrics are based upon interviews, reference checks, send outs, interviews, and of course placements. 

Is it pretty typical for a recruiter to not receive commission for the first year of work even if their placement goals are met?
