Yesterday I posted Q4 2013 Trend: Minnesota Companies Hiring Jr Recruiters And Coordinators.
Later in the day while walking through the Downtown Minneapolis skyway I bumped into a HR Director at a big bank HQ’d in Minneapolis.
She had seen my blog post and was wondering what recruiters were looking for in a company. That they have been recruiting recruiters for a while and not having much success.
Here was a list off the top of my head and in no particular order:
Responsive hiring managers
Reasonable number of jobs, skill sets to recruit for
Tools that allow for better sourcing of candidates
An applicant tracking system that does not suck, use friendly
