Contract and HR Recruiters: Are they “The BUSINESS PREVENTION DEPARTMENT”?

Published on April 9, 2014 by



A couple times a year I meet up with one of my local recruiter colleagues to wax philosophical about our industry. Such was the case recently.
One of


Marty Koenig‘s insight:

Personally, I have had about an overall 10% decency rate on recruiters, whether internally at companies, external via contract recruiters or vendor recruiters. 

The best experience has been through vendor recruiters. Those who have proven themselves to stay on the hiring company’s vendor list as a reputable and results-producing recruiting vendor. 

A vast majority of the not-so professional ones have these traits:

  • Don’t follow through
  • Don’t return calls
  • Don’t communicate
  • Treats a senior executive like a 20-something with little life experience, and talks down
  • Are paid for submittals, not for actual hires (this one was a new one until I was unfairly submitted to a contract opportunity at 25% less than we had agreed to)
  • Ask “screening questions” that are “kindergarten” questions that make no notice of senior executive experience
  • Don’t understand the job they are screening for
  • Don’t read resumes, or spend 17 seconds glancing for key words, instead of actually reading it to glean the true essence of the person to see if there is the potential for a good candidate (versus only focusing on the ‘perfect resume’
  • Don’t treat you with the respect that a long, successful career has earned you
  • They are inefficient in their workflow
  • They are overworked and overpaid with compensation metrics misaligned with the real purpose of finding stellar candidates
  • Their account managers who have the relationship with the hiring company are usually the real professionals. If you are lucky enough to find a recruiter who is the account manager and the recruiter, that’s better.

The few  (internally and externally) I have worked with who are true professionals exude the exact opposite of the traits above.

Why picking the Top 4 resumes often leads to hiring failures – Denver Business Journal

Published on April 8, 2014 by



When time is scarce and you are staring at a mountain of resumes, it’s natural to want to whittle the mountain down. Most managers say, “Let’s start with the three or four very best resumes. We can always come back later to consider the other candidates.” It feels like smart time management, but it doesn’t work.


Marty Koenig‘s insight:

Bob says “the people with “perfect resumes” often aren’t the best candidates.”  I agree. I also contend that the reciprocal is true. My personal experience is the best candidates don’t have the most perfect resume. 


Just because someone has spent the effort and time to make a perfect resume that matches the job perfectly, and hits 100% of all the job requirements, does not mean that someone with an 80% resume is a much better candidate and will perform much better once on the job. 


When hiring managers or HR screeners spend all of 30 seconds reading the resume of a senior executive, they are doing their company a disservice. 


Solution:

1. Carve out the right amount of time to engage in the hiring process. 

2. Read the resumes. don’t just skim them.


When I hired 900 people to deploy to nine regions in 30 days, I read several thousand resumes. Every word. No skimming. That’s one way I grew a $30M practice to $150M and improved gross margin by 50%.

Tapping the power of hidden influencers | McKinsey & Company

Published on April 8, 2014 by



A tool social scientists use to identify sex workers and drug users can help senior executives find the people most likely to catalyze—or sabotage—organizational-change efforts. A McKinsey Quarterly article.


Marty Koenig‘s insight:

Change management best practices and principles in an organization is often ignored.

Yes, technology changes are typically managed well, but the human side of change leaves a ton of opportunity and money on the table at any size company. 

This article takes me back to my graduate degree program in management where we used tools to find the hidden influencers. 

Anyone at Director level and above should read this article, and review it during any change that affects people and the way the do things at the company.
