China Head Hunters are Getting Worse and Worse – Oh My
Our candidates are saying China head hunters are getting worse be they Western or Domestic. They do not get to know you any more. Those recruiters do not help you understand the company anymore. They just spend a few minutes and pitch you. You feel like a piece of meat. You are just a dot in the big data. SHI Group refuses to succumb to this trend. We do small data. and personal work with candidates and clients. We know what you and the candidates need.
It seems 2 years ago they would connect better with valuable candidates, but now the trend is very bad. Perhaps, we are old school as against this trend.
China Head Hunters are Getting Worse, and We Will not Follow
We care about people even if they are not valued candidates. At SHI Group, we see each person be they customer or candidate as a human being with dignity and value. We defy the trend to treat people like meat. We are saddened to hear that is what is happening.
It is also good for business. Many candidates will not talk openly unless they are cared for. Many will not apply unless you and we really care for them.
We wish our clients would also understand that even people you probably will not hire will talk about their experience with you with their friends. They will talk about you badly because the recruiter you sent treated them bad, and they will talk about you badly because of how your staff or you treated them. Given our work, we hear it all the time.
We make appointments to talk at 9:30 with candidates and call at 9:30 sharp. We seek and give feedback to all candidates we put forward. They deserve that and get it less and less. SHI Group takes time to really know them and hear all they have. We understand the people who are good and bad at interviewing may all have something your company may need.
SHI Group deeply knows that some people have ugly resumes but have beautiful talent and character. We do not think the best interviewees should get all the jobs. We think the best people should get the job even if they have ugly resumes and are not good at interviews.
Finally, we hope for a world like that and always work that way.
How about you?
