Recruiters’ Notes for 2023:

Our 2023 Mid-Year Update is now available! In 2023, the Copier Channel is rife with jobs and scant on candidates. The competition for hiring is fierce, and candidates are feeling their power and looking for the best deal. Our new reality comes with some hard truths. For those reasons, our top recruiters have pulled together some pro tips to help hiring managers accept the reality of a candidates’ market and what it takes to hire.

Jessica Crowley:
  • “The employers who are successful in hiring understand the changed power dynamic. They are as tenacious about hiring as they are about securing new clients. Flexible companies have a distinct advantage in this market, and those who reject candidates because ‘they don’t fit our model’ are struggling. Candidates who are a perfect fit are few and far between. You might get lucky, but then again, you might not.”
  • “I recently had a candidate rave to me about a great interview. They were so impressed with the hiring company because the interviewer didn’t treat them like a suspicious character who needed to be investigated. They felt seen and respected, and that had a huge effect on their impression of the company.”
Jenna Humbert:
  • “The realities of a candidates’ market are starting to sink in. In this market, even though employers have standards, they’re getting more flexible about qualifications. They are also improving on frequent, effective communication with recruiters and candidates.”
  • “When employers don’t really know what they’re looking for during an interview, it’s glaringly obvious to the candidate and is an immediate red flag. Candidates want to know what the job entails, what skills are needed and what their advancement path looks like. Not having those answers makes you look disorganized and unsafe to candidates.”
Jean Gothberg:
  • “Companies need to be more creative to attract candidates, and money is a big factor along with benefits, 401(k), a company car and other perks. Paying techs to get certification is also effective. Most of all, timeliness in feedback and making an offer is critical to hiring strong candidates.”
  • “Authenticity is key. You have to be honest about the culture, so candidates are prepared. If you blindside them, they’ll be gone. You can’t trick or trap candidates.”

Featured Comments:
