Are Recruiters Relevant in the Social Media Age?

Posted by Momentum Search Partners on Fri, Nov 22, 2013

With the ease of making connections via social media and job postings reaching more people than ever before, many people ask if a recruiter’s fee remains a beneficial expense. Companies and law firms face mounting cost-containing pressures, and external recruiters are often a cost targeted for reduction. All employers agree that their most valuable resource is its employees and hiring the right – or the wrong – person is a decision critical to the bottom line. So the question becomes whether a recruiter can result in a better hire? Our clients say yes – when certain conditions exist.

You need a smart, hardworking fourth-year corporate attorney with large law firm training that fits in with challenging personalities. The ad you placed produced 100 unqualified candidates, 20 of whom keep following up with you, leaving voicemails and cluttering up your inbox. Having spent several hundred dollars on advertising and countless hours examining off-point resumes (or worse, meeting people whose personality are not a fit for your culture), you aren't one step closer to hiring and you’ve lost countless billable hours in the process. Can working with a recruiter make your hiring process more efficient and yield better results?
