10 Things to Know About Recruiters | Client Edition

Our mission at PromoPlacement is to connect supplier and distributor clients with great promotional products industry talent. Our team brings over 50 years of promotional products and recruiting experience to every search we undertake. Understanding your business, the function of various positions in your business, and the unique business challenges you face help us to deliver on our brand promise.

Below are best practices that will allow you to get the maximum value when working with a recruiter:

#1

As a contingency recruiting firm, we work exclusively with promotional products firms to help you find the talent you need to succeed. We treat each client relationship as a true partnership with the goal of hiring the best possible candidate for your firm.

#2

We take confidentiality very seriously. The name of your business is not shared until you agree to interview a candidate. Confidentiality is critical to protecting both clients and candidates and ensuring the integrity of the search.

#3

Each candidate search is unique. We conduct a thorough search for candidates for every opportunity we’re presented with. PromoPlacement targets only the individuals who fit your profile for the ideal candidate.

We won’t send you a big pile of resumes to review. Our work is done with a laser, not a shotgun. Our goal is to provide you with two to four excellent candidates for your to choose from.

Searches are extensive and time-consuming. During a search, we utilize email, social media, phone, and thousands of industry contacts to develop the talent pool from which your new team member will emerge. We don’t run ads. The highly successful candidates we want don’t read ads. They become aware of a great opportunity with your company because we contact them and present the opportunity to them directly.

#4

We work exclusively with promotional products suppliers and distributors and provide only experienced promotional products industry talent. Our exclusive focus on the promo industry allows us to keep our finger on the pulse of the national talent market.

#5

Due to the nature and thoroughness of our searches, it can take anywhere from four to twelve weeks to complete your search. Planning your staffing needs in advance is critical.

#6

We don’t recruit distributor sales reps. During our first year in business, we had strong success in this highly competitive and challenging field. We now focus solely on salaried positions and can assist you with any role from mailroom clerk to CEO.

#7

Our days are pretty jammed packed. We’re busy but will always make time for our clients. Even if this means working nights and weekends. Our clients are our number one priority and for you, we are always on the clock. We’re on the phone most of the day, so email is often the best way to get a quick response.

#8

If we present a candidate who doesn’t quite fit your needs, don’t hesitate to say so. You won’t hurt anyone’s feelings, and you’ll help us to find better candidates for you in the near future. We do ask for clear, thorough feedback on where the candidate misses the mark.

#9

Prompt communication is critical when is comes to discussing job candidates. The faster we communicate, the faster we can fill your position. Slow communication can cost us candidates who accept other positions with companies who respond more quickly.

#10

PromoPlacement wants to earn your business. By working together in partnership, we can take recruiting off your plate and find you the best industry talent available.
