“We will see a focus on more proactive networking and building vital long-term relationships. Even before a particular job becomes available, a recruiter may have a great fit in mind because they have taken the time to connect with professionals in that trade. A proactive approach allows recruiters to be aware of rising stars, instead of just posting an ad and being at the mercy of who responds to it. It’s also a valuable way to find someone who is not even actively looking for a new role.

Relationship-building helps to ensure a quality fit not only for the position itself, but also for the company culture—a key area to a successful recruitment and the ongoing well-being of a company. It’s often difficult to gauge a person’s true personality over the course of a few interviews where everyone is on their best behavior. Relationship-building gives the recruiter opportunities to know potential candidates on a much deeper level over a longer period of time.

While it may seem like a longer process on the front-end, this approach results in a better flow of applicants and a more informed hiring decision. It’s important to view the recruiting process and networking as brand-building opportunities to grow a company’s image, which is becoming more important to attract and retain talent. It can actually even be a resource-saving measure by building loyalty with the new hire and ultimately increasing job retention.”
