Complaints that we are not responding have already dropped
Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) August 6, 2007
Berkeley Palmer says complaints that recruiters cannot respond to every job seeker have prompted two companies to come together to provide a full range of services.
Berkeley Palmer gets complaints that recruiters do not respond when they get someone's resume; and recruiters complain that they simply don't have the time to respond to each resume. According to one source, "If recruiters took the time to respond to each resume, we'd spend all of our time responding and wouldn't have time to work on placements. Part of the problem is that most of the resumes we get for any given posting simply don't qualify for the job."
Berkeley Palmer (and some affiliates) has developed a relationship with Whitehall recruiting that might solve the problem brought on by complaints on both sides of this dilemma.
Whitehall sends an email response to each applicant that acknowledges their receipt of interest from the candidate. Within that email is an invitation to fill out their inquiry form. If the job seeker agrees to have information shared with a career marketing firm Whitehall will (if appropriate) forward the inquiry to Berkeley Palmer. "Complaints that we are not responding have already dropped," says Whitehall.
Berkely Palmer feel complaints about recruiter's lack of response will always exist. According to the spokesperson, "The problem is that recruiters only find a job for one person at a time, even though they may get hundreds of resumes for the same job. They (recruiters) are not bad people just busy people. Facts are facts; unless a company is looking to fill a lot of positions at once (which seldom happens) it will always be the case that the recruiter will ultimately only get one candidate that job."
When asked what makes Berkely Palmer different from recruiters? "Recruiters get a position to fill for a company and seek the one candidate out of many to fill that need. We work with our clients to approach companies. It's kind of like recruiting in reverse. We work with a client on approaching many companies, instead of a company seeking one prospective employee out of many."
