Tele-Seminar Recording: Working with Recruiters

listening_earIf you’re a books-on-CD kind of person or don’t like reading through lengthy articles on your computer screen, I’ve got good news!  On July 15th, I was part of a two-person recruiter panel providing advice on “Working with Recruiters.”  A lot of good information was shared and all of it was recorded for your easy reference.

Here is the Intro to the Audio File for the tele-seminar moderated by Kristi Daeda of Career Adventure.

Some of the questions that were covered during the seminar include:

  • As an executive recruiter, what is your role in connecting candidates with potential employers?
  • For a typical job opening, how many candidates might you screen?  How many do you present?
  • What criteria do you use to select candidates to present to a client? 
  • What do successful candidates do that makes them more attractive to present to the client?
  • How often would you want to hear from a candidate?
  • After a candidate is selected to be presented, what are your expectations of them? 
  • How can a candidate find an appropriate recruiter to contact?

Also, I was fortunate to have a brand new friend on Twitter, @teenarose, simultaneously tweeting some of my quips.  Here’s the “Tweeted version” of some of the insights she shared:

Teleseminar: @jlipschultz states he leverages all info on candidates; i.e. resume, LinkedIn, social media

Teleseminar: @jlipschultz states spend time w/recruiter who want to invest time in you; build solid relationships

Teleseminar: @jlipschultz states F/U w/recruiters if something changes; i.e. your skill set. @jlipschultz provides great advice!

Teleseminar: @jlipschultz states “do your homework”; you never know when you’ll be called to the mat

Teleseminar: @jlipschultz states qualify recruiter based on word of mouth and their actions; use social media/learn about them

Teleseminar: @jlipschultz states qualify recruiter by asking about relationship w/the target company you’re interested in

    FilTranscriptionists Transcription and Proofreading Process:

    We follow a completely manual transcription process. We process each order in three stages:
    * In the first stage, our transcribers then transcribe whatever is possible as per our guidelines and submit what is called the raw transcript. Parts which are inaudible or incomprehensible are marked with blanks.
    * The second stage is a review process where our reviewers go through the raw transcript and correct it. Timestamps and speaker initials are also added at this stage. The remaining blanks are timestamped. *The third stage is the final proofreading stage.

    We have developed our own in house system to manage this whole process. There are various benefits of this process.

    * We ensure that there are at least two different people working on each file, one transcriber and reviewer thus ensuring a higher quality of transcription.
    * We are consistent because we publish a comprehensive set of guidelines for our transcribers and reviewers.

    Our transcribers and reviewers are highly experienced and trained. We also provide a free re-review if the transcript quality is not satisfactory.

    In case we detect a very poor audio quality file, we refund the complete amount for the order.
