Naples, FL, September 08, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- In spite of an unemployment rate hovering at around 9% coupled with fierce competition for jobs in the U.S., employers are having a difficult time finding top performing candidates to fill mid to high level management and professional positions. There are a multitude of candidates that apply for every one position, but many times they are under qualified. The most qualified top talent, also known as “A Players,” are usually already employed or have several choices available for different job opportunities.
"It's unwise to assume there is an unlimited talent pool in this market," says Rob Romaine, president of MRINetwork. "The best talent is most likely already working, particularly in fields such as healthcare, science, and technology. While the first challenge is finding qualified candidates, the bigger challenge is closing the deal and hiring them. Why? Because they have options."
According to Dave Dart, Managing Partner of the Morisey-Dart Group, an executive recruitment firm, “Time is the most important element when developing and executing an interview process geared to attract top performers to your company.” He suggests that hiring managers set up a timeline for the entire hiring process and that using an executive recruitment firm's services can help move things along, especially when it comes time to make an offer.
Dart continues, “We see many companies drag out the hiring process and they take months from the candidate’s initial interview until the offer is finally made. This is harmful because as time passes—the excitement of the opportunity wanes and starts to feel more like a predicament. Top performing candidates are accustomed to driving business to a conclusion. They measure a company’s communications abilities throughout the hiring process, so don’t let too much time pass before you close the deal.”
