How to be a more accurate recruiter

There’s a new, and quite dangerous, way to recruit. 

This is not the sort of recruiting tool that will work on the level of, say, a YouTube video, but it does have a significant impact on your job search. 

So, here are 5 tactics that should be used to help you better manage your recruiters. 


Be patient and be flexibleYou should probably be more aggressive than you usually would be, especially when you’re starting out, but the more aggressive you are, the more your job searches will be impacted. 

When you start recruiting, you should be patient and flexible. 

The more aggressive a recruiter is, the less likely they are to go for a specific target, the fewer people are likely to see it, and the fewer opportunities you will have to go out and recruit.

When you recruit, you are essentially making a commitment to an entire community. 

You can’t just go out there and recruit the same people every day. 

Your recruitment efforts should be based on what you are looking for, and you should try to work with the person that best fits the job you’re looking for. 


Set a budgetYou want to be able to recruit at a high level. 

If you can’t afford to recruit for yourself, you might want to find someone that can. 

While it’s always possible to find good people to work for a small contract, a bigger budget can also help you keep recruiting, even when you don’t have a lot of money. 


Know when to go into overdriveYou have to be ready to go in at some point, and if you’re just starting out and your recruiter isn’t doing a great job, you’re going to be in a big spot. 

It’s important to understand when it’s time to go overdrive. 

Once you’ve reached a certain level, you’ll have to start planning a strategy, and it’s important that you know what you want to accomplish in order to get there. 


Keep a good eye on your progressYou should always have a good, balanced view of what your recruiting efforts are doing, because it’s the only way to know how your recruiting is progressing. 

Be aware of how you are performing, and whether or not your recruiting has been effective. 


Don’t be afraid to get creativeYou can get a lot done in the short time you’re recruiting, but don’t be discouraged if you don. 

As a recrucer, you can use your recruiting tools to recruit a whole new group of people. 

Do you want someone to be interested in basketball?

Then do a basketball recruiting campaign. 

How about a baseball recruiting campaign? 

Do a golf recruiting campaign, or a tennis recruiting campaign if you have the opportunity? 

You’ll never know until you try.
