If you want to hire the top talent, place more candidates and be a successful recruiter, you got to have the following skills.
- Candidate sourcing skill combined with great researching capabilities. You got to be lightning fast in finding the right candidates, their contact information and reach them as the earliest. Getting candidates’ background information can also be handy.
- Cold calling skills. Develop the knack of engaging candidates in seconds, building rapport & trust by asking direct and professional questions.
- Selling skills. Recruiting is sales and you got to know the art of selling. Don’t push your candidate to accept an offer. It may not last long and you might lose the trust of your client and candidate as well.
