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.

Benchmark Professional Careers say complaints that recruiters cannot respond to every job seeker have prompted two companies to resolve that problem, providing a full range of services.
Benchmark Professional Careers 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."
Benchmark Professional Careers (and select affiliates) have developed a relationship with Whitehall Price 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 Benchmark Professional Careers. "Complaints that we are not responding have already dropped," says Whitehall.
Benchmark Careers feel complaints about recruiter's lack of response will always exist. According to Benchmark Careers "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 Benchmark Professional Careers 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."
