Remember the 1960’s?
Well, there are two generations of job seekers who don’t.
Fifty years ago, there were four basic ways to fill a job opening. One was to advertise the position and wait for people to apply; today this is known as the “post and pray” method. The three other 1960’s methods were to seek candidates from within the organization for promotion or identify previous applicants to reconsider -- network with people for a referral to prospective candidates -- or pay a recruitment fee. Not much has changed, except the process has become automated.
On January 25, 2012 at 2 PM EST, Food Seminars International hosted Bill Humbert for a webinar titled "Turn Recruiting For The Best Candidate into a Sales Process" The Food and Bio-Pharma industries have talent needs that are very specific: Scientists and Food Safety/Pharma Safety are just two.

Bill Humbert, an AIRS trained contract recruiter consultant of RecruiterGuy.com (a division of The Humbert Group LLC) draws on professional recruitment experience dating back to 1981. Since 1992, RecruiterGuy.com has worked primarily on a flat monthly fee contract recruitment consultant basis. This means that we deliver the best qualified full time employees to you in a manner that may be budgeted ahead and work with you to improve your recruitment processes and recruitment website. Another advantage of working this way is that there is no additional charge, no matter the number of hours worked, the number of candidates hired, or recruitment improvement impacts made.

Asking the right questions comes only from years of contract recruitment consulting experience in many different industries. Certainly specializing in an industry offers some advantages.

In the book "Topgrading", Bradford Smart quotes a CEO regarding a large contingent search firm, "I asked for a lock-out list and found that the search firm was ethically forbidden to search in two-thirds of all Fortune 500 companies in our industry - their current clients. So, their pool of "A" players is one-third of what we expected."
The RecruiterGuy.com business model is different. Stay small. RecruiterGuy.com typically partners with one client at a time while charging a flat monthly fee. This is important because with such a small client list, we may contractually and ethically recruit virtually out of any company for you, including competitors. At the same time we bring our management recruitment consulting experience to our contract.
We have over eighteen years of Internet contract recruitment consulting experience. Let us demonstrate how to save thousands of recruitment dollars per year yet remain effective. Internet Job Boards have their place in recruitment marketing. However, in order to be really effective attracting and delivering Impact Performers, we spend the time needed to direct source and find and deliver the passive candidates. We train you to do the same.
Our contract recruitment consulting experience has enabled us to develop successful recruitment strategies for many companies in different industries in most areas of the United States. We have experienced many different recruitment economies. What works in one economy or in one industry may not work in another as well. In other words, as a contract recruitment consulting firm, RecruiterGuy.com will develop and implement a recruitment strategy that works to solve your current recruitment challenges.
Some companies may hire us for contract recruitment consulting simply for our recruitment abilities. We enjoy the hunt for Impact Performers. We enjoy introducing candidates to our clients where both can become more successful. Using a combination of direct sourcing techniques and AIRS Internet search techniques, we work with you to deliver the best qualified candidates.
