Conversation With A HR Director… “Why Is It So Difficult To Hire A Recruiter?”

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

Q4 2013 Trend: Minnesota Companies Hiring Jr Recruiters And Coordinators

There are a number of noticeable trends in the Minnesota hiring scene right now. One of the most obvious is the hiring of Junior Recruiters and Recruiting Coordinators.

To the point now that the I am asked the following almost equally:

Conversation With A Startup CEO… “When Should I Start Q1 2014 Recruiting?”

I have had a number of conversations the last two weeks regarding 2014 recruiting with a common theme:

When should we start?

Part of the answer depends on when in Q1 you want folks to be starting. The CEO I spoke with yesterday said Jan 6th, the first full week of 2014.

My answer to the CEO:

NOW!!!

Here’s the deal… we have roughly nine weeks until the first full week of 2014.

We lose a couple of days for Thanksgiving and likely many around Christmas and New Years with them being in the middle of the week.

Let’s say we lose two weeks for the holidays, vacations and personal days.
