What makes a good Recruiting Manager?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Shalaka Katdare Mar 7, 2011. 16 Replies

I'm looking for some input in what you think it takes to be a good Recruiting Manager.  What would you want to see or have seen out of a manager that was really positive...or negative.

David Sanders commented on Derdiver's blog post 'So, why are you an "Agency Recruiter"?'
"I like not being tied to any one industry or company.  If a company or industry faces a downturn, no problem I just focus on a different company or sector. I also enjoy the freedom to fire a client who is unresponsive,…"

"I'm with Samantha, this article would carry more weight if written by a woman.  I'm sure women have insights that we men wouldn't even consider. "

David Sanders commented on pam claughton's blog post 'Does focusing tightly on numbers scare recruiters away?'
"The numbers need to be a guideline.  We all have up and down days/weeks.  I think you need to track your individual ratios ( how many submits to interviews, how many interviews to placements) and be aware of where you are at.  Having…"

"You can't choose any better than Jobscience Recruiting.  Talent Relationship Management is considered the best you can get and not ever product is considered TRM.  Do you want social sourcing, patent pending search technology,…"

Judi Wunderlich commented on David Sanders's blog post 'ATS Selection....again.'
"When I started our firm, WunderLand, a staffing firm, two and a half years ago, we used CATS (www.catsone.com) for candidate handling and job order handling. It doesn't have a robust sales application at all, but the recruiting part was…"

Megan Flynn commented on David Sanders's blog post 'ATS Selection....again.'
"I have used CATS as my ATS since my start in recruiting and I absolutely love it. I have heard horror stories about other ATS's and I haven't had any of the same problems with CATS. It sometimes feels a little outdated, but they are…"

Tom Dimmick commented on David Sanders's blog post 'ATS Selection....again.'
"My comment was really directed at the folks that are going to use the system.  The IT people should be asking the questions like: "OK you want to have candidates accessible on our system.  Who can see it?  For what purposes? Can…"

Tom Dimmick commented on David Sanders's blog post 'ATS Selection....again.'

ATS Selection....again.

Alright fellow Recruiting Bloggers, I need your help and collective wisdom.  I have been placed on the selection committee for a new ATS for my company and I need some advice on what features and benefits you find valuable or wish you had and which ones really don't add any value.  We will be looking at the usual suspects, BullHorn, MaxHire and Sendouts and I also wanted to see what other ATS's you guys would suggest.  This is the 2nd time I've been through this in less than year (the first…See More

David Sanders commented on Bill Schultz's blog post 'Almost Famous-Recruiter Groupies.'

"I'd agree with Bagus, it is so important to cover the dreaded counter offer questions. "What would you do if your current company offered you an extra few thousand to stay?" is one I always used in telephone pre-screening. Using it…"
