As a recruiter, you know that negative thoughts hinder your business growth. However, because you’ll inevitably hit road blocks at times, maintaining a positive attitude can be challenging. Therefore, it’s important you recognize the times your thoughts aren’t helping you remain productive so you can change them accordingly. Here are three tips for focusing on positive actions that lead to success.
Continue Learning About Recruiting
For example, stay current on the market you serve by knowing the influencers, reading the news and following the latest trends. Also, continue developing relationships with clients and candidates to improve your placement outcomes. In addition, use a mix of technology and intuition to determine whether candidates are being honest about their skills and experience and are the best fit for a role. Regularly participate in webinars, conferences, continuing education, classes and other professional development opportunities so you stay current with your industry.
Find New Opportunities for Success
Respond to every phone call or email from current or potential clients and candidates. Even if you’d rather not deal with the client or candidate, responding to them within 24 hours shows your professionalism and may lead to other clients or candidates you want to work with. Also, when sifting through your voicemails, emails and social media responses, focus on tasks that improve your bottom line, and schedule time to handle the rest later. In addition, stay current with recruiting trends so your methods evolve along with them. Furthermore, continue networking and developing relationships so you increase your client and candidate pools. Additionally, use Boolean sourcing for Google or LinkedIn to search for resumes and cover letters that are stored within personal websites, job boards and social platforms and match the requirements you’re looking for to fill a role.
Outsource Your Back Office
Outsourcing your back-office tasks frees up time and money for other areas of your business. Being able to focus on earning revenue helps you be more efficient and productive while decreasing your stress level. You benefit from experts with access to the latest technology for HR, payroll and other areas while paying only for the services you need. You also avoid paying hefty IRS fines and penalties for payroll or tax filing errors. In addition, you reduce your risk of expensive lawsuits for hiring and firing decisions. You’re able to develop more relationships with clients and candidates while having a team focused on your administrative responsibilities.
