The job recruitment process in a high-level position

The job recruitment process for each position will be different from others. But in general, most of them including a basic step that is listed below:

1. Candidate sourcing

The role of an effective candidate sourcing phase helps to find the best suitable candidate for a vacancy with the minimum talent list before transferring it to business. Recruitment firms have their ability to access the market that businesses can not. Besides, they have enough experience to understand the difference between a good and a bad candidate on paper, based on the criteria given by the client businesses. 

In summary, the Candidate Sourcing step is an extremely important part of the process that ensures businesses in both:

  • Find the best candidate for the position;

  • Minimize the number of interviews

2. Job and offer management

This step in the recruitment process usually helps to ensure the HR department or recruitment search firm make the best possible hiring decision for both the business and the candidate. Job management can be broken down into the following parts:

  • Give the opportunity to prospective candidates;

  • Interview preparation and feedback;

  • Ensuring suitable retained search in place

3. Post-placement

After successful recruitment, the retained search provider usually does their post-placement phase. This step makes sure the recruitment firm knows both the candidate and client have any issues with the last successful recruitment. And if the problem exists, the recruitment search firm needs to communicate with them to find the appropriate solution.
