Book smarts will take you a long way. Street smarts will take you further.
Candidate resumes only ever tell half of the story. The job-specific knowledge and abilities that fill CVs – known as hard skills – certainly give insight into the candidate’s experience and capabilities. But the question remains; how do they go about applying all of these book smarts?
An understanding of the candidate’s soft skills will help you paint a more complete picture. Soft skills are those that aren’t learned from textbooks – rather they’re a set of personal attributes, developed over time, that allow a candidate to work well with other people. We’re talking things like the ability to collaborate, negotiate, and adapt to changing circumstances – otherwise known as street smarts.
Modern recruiters know that soft skills are incredibly important. According to this iCIMS survey, 94% of recruiting professionals believe an employee with stronger soft skills has a better chance of being promoted than an employee with more experience but weaker soft skills.
Identifying hard skills is an important part of a recruiter’s job, and analyzing resumes is always the first step in filling any position. But when it comes to the crunch – where you need to pick the best of the best from a pool of qualified candidates – understanding and identifying soft skills is key to finding the perfect hire.
So which soft skills should a recruiter be on the lookout for? Here are seven that’ll separate the great candidates from the good.
10 Reasons You Should Use Staffing Firms
Staffing firms can play a critical role in helping companies find talent. By staffing firms I mean any external search firm that earns a fee for making a placement with a company. This includes staffing agencies, RPOs, contingency and retained executive search firms, and their hybrids.
There is nothing inherently superior to recruiters who work at external firms when compared to corporate recruiters, other than they tend to work fewer assignments and their compensation is based on their results, not their level of activity. This is a huge advantage when it comes to representing stronger candidates.
Unfortunately, many (maybe most) staffing firms don’t take full advantage of the opportunity. Too many compete on speed and lower pricing, presenting the same candidates their clients can find on their own. Equally as bad, many of their corporate clients force even the better firms to follow rules and processes that eliminate their unique advantages. To address this, I suggest using the following 10 factors when evaluating an outside search firm. If they don’t meet this standard, don’t use the firm.
