You don’t return my calls! You wasted my time! You don’t provide me with updates! I would NEVER refer anyone to your firm! You never sent me on one interview!
Do you have your receptionist “screen out” individuals who call often to obtain an update or status report? Are the job seekers who call you MOST the candidates you will never place? Do you provide f.r.e.e consulting and advice only to have the job seeker get upset when you don’t find them a job?
How often have you written a resume or provided f.r.e.e career counseling to people referred to you by some of your best clients? It is estimated that 60-90 minutes are “wasted” daily on candidates you will never place!
Imagine what you could accomplish if you could put that time BACK in your day? As a profession, we place less than 5% of the people who we attract. Of the 95% we don’t place – over 30% of them end up as Hiring Authorities! The Job Market is changing to a “candidate driven” market place which is why it is MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER to improve the overall candidate experience. How many job seekers never complain to you, but tell everyone they know how dissatisfied they were with you and your firm? Social Networks have made it simple for job seekers to post their displeasure with YOU or your company and they can reach out to hundreds or thousands of people in minutes, not to mention what this does for your online reputation.
After talking to them initially, if you know they will not turn into a placement, tell them you will contact them if and when you find them an opportunity and then refer these LPC’s to www.yourcareerdesigner.com. This site is a free resource that provides them with 100% of what they need to find a job (including live job seeker training including Q & A to help them). This will • Eliminate your greatest time waster (time spent on LPC’s – Least placeable candidates) • Increase Production – you will now focus on the 5% you WILL place • Greatly improve your reputation – you will now help 100% of your candidates • ELIMINATE “stalker calls” “status calls” & calls from angry upset job seekers
