Did you know that the US is currently facing a talent shortage? That’s right. Even with today’s economy and high jobless rates, employers have trouble filling key positions. In fact, in a recent CareerBuilder survey, 38% of employers indicated that they have open positions for which they cannot find qualified staff (CareerBuilder, August, 2012).
This is where a skilled executive recruiter can really add value.
“Many hiring managers are simply unaware of what an executive recruiting firm has to offer,” says Jennifer Wright, the founder of Becker Wright Consultants (BWC), a recruiting firm based in Lakeway. “Our expertise lies in taking the burden of finding qualified candidates from business leaders– allowing them to focus on their core business needs.”
Many hiring managers spend valuable time attempting to source their own candidates or contract with large “job shop” recruiters who offer a volume of candidates, but yield disappointing results. Worse yet, employers will hire a candidate because he or she has the right skills, only to discover that the new hire is not a fit with the culture of the company. Working with an executive recruiter can help to alleviate these issues.
At BWC, quality is valued over quantity. Some employers believe that a larger number of resumes sentindicatethat a recruiter is doing his or her job. Not so, says Jennifer. “When a client engages our services, our goal is to send that client 5-10 resumes of ‘dead-on’ candidates, rather than large quantities of not quite right candidates,” says Jennifer. “We work to understand the skills our clients are seeking, as well as their corporate culture, in order to find the perfect match.” All of which is often done within days of an initial meeting.
With her connections, Jennifer has secured contracts placing professionals with major corporations nationwide, such as Starbucks, Ann Taylor, and American Tower, to name just a few. BWC serves a number of industries, such as telecom, medical, oil and gas, high-tech and others. BWC has, to date, had a hand in hiring over 250 associates nationwide and assisting over 30 corporations.
With all of their success nationwide, Jennifer and her team love working with local companies. Says Jennifer, “Whether you are a 3 employee company, or a Fortune 500 company, we can qualify the right talent for your business. And, we do it on your timeline.”
