A client for a recruiter is the hiring manager. By talking to the hiring manager, you can get better job requirements, team fit requirements and personality requirements. You can have a lasting relationship with the hiring manager, by sending a candidate who fits all or most of the criteria for the job and team. A candidate needs to not only meet the job requirements, but also fit well within the team. When you as a recruiter provide candidates that fit the needs for the job. It will help in getting repeat business from the hiring manager. The candidate you place will stay longer in the role. If the candidate is a contractor, you end up making more money over a period with the commissions you get. So, what all this means is that the improved hiring manager/client communication will directly contribute to your bottom line.
How does talking to candidates help in performing better?
The candidates are the other important people you need more communication with. When you talk to a candidate, here are a few things you should consider understanding better
