1, Clients require - high quality on demand

Once a company decides to cooperate with an executive search agency – headhunting agency, it most definitely was unable to find the suitable candidate, or perhaps failed doing so by relying on its own resources.

In these special cases we may assume that the vacant position requires a certain degree of expertise, e.g. engineering positions or jobs in specific industries.

The average client is likely to pose the following statement “the best time for fulfilling a vacant position is ASAP”. Job descriptions are written in full detail containing all requirements and skills needed from the ideal candidate – Leader + Manager.

Because of this, to schedule a meeting with the client is essential part and extensive communication between a client and a head hunter is the first priority in order to achieve the desired goal - find the best possible candidate.

Nowadays there is a slight boundary between the activity of the recruitment companies. Everybody does everything, everybody is a headhunter and you can think there aren’t any differences between the companies. 

This is a common standpoint in connection with this sector, but if we check them accurately we can realize there are lots of differences between the companies.

8 years ago, when I started to use LinkedIn, it was barely known in Poland, for me as a head-hunter it was „ eureca”, a new milestone in my  professional development and significant  increase of my  efficiency with successful placements.

Unfortunately, along with this positive feeling I felt also a disturbing fear that the times of the traditional recruitment and advantages of external recruiters on HR will „ go with the wind”.  What was supposed to help us -  recruiters -  became a threat to us, a competition, which in the next few years meant that we all can be head-hunters.

Haven’t you ever wished your success didn’t depend on other people? All the efforts and energy you’ve put into a new recruitment assignment, the obstacles you’ve  surmounted and the little victories you’ve rejoiced have brought you to the final result – there you have it, seemingly all yours, yet the time has come to put it to the real test – the acceptance and approval of the others. Things are apparently no longer solely in your hands.

These days it´s very hard to find a well paid job, especially when someone is young. At a time when everyone is well educated and knows at least one language, it´s hard to be chosen by your future employer. So the main question is how can we stand out from the huge group of the young people? Without any experience after studies it is extremely hard to find your first job without any problems.

The expression “Halo Effect” is not derived from the English word “hallo”, as some people may think.  “Halo” as a circle of the light can be associated with saints or positive attributes.  We have tendency to create our own imagination according to subjective points of interest. Our perception is influenced with the very first sight.

Does Halo Effect affect the decision of professional headhunter?

Even a professional headhunter, who is trained to be objective and unprejudiced, can´t avoid to judge candidates according to their first impression.

Working as a recruiter within an agency specialized on Headhunting, I was always told by the majority of professionals, that the next step in my career could be making the transition to an internal department of a multinational company. This could be the breaking point of evolvement and growth. On the other hand there is also a group of people that considers the boutique type of business, to be more provocative and satisfying. During 7 months I could switch sides and experience both.

31st of December 2013.

I had a very difficult day yesterday again, actually this week, this month, all this year I was focusing on my work. This year passed by incredibly fast, I had no time to deal with anything else or anybody. If I consider it, it was not the first year like this…  I was doing the usual “year end cleaning”, closing all official annual paperwork, invoices and reports were all around me. Today I was still in my office at 7 o clock, when my friends and acquaintances were preparing themselves for the party tonight. ..What am I doing here?  I should work somewhere else, where I feel comfortable, where I am appreciated, where I am not impeached always… But I am appreciated here. Am I? … I have a good salary, a nice apartment with beautiful interior and a modern car.   I live well…I live well except that I have nobody not even a dog or cat. At least I do not have to take them for a walk.  Who else works daily 10-12 hours, has no other way of life, is that everyone wants?
