On Reflik, Dave has submitted dozens of highly-qualified candidates, has gotten plenty of interviews for his candidates, and has even made a few placements. He has earned thousands of dollars in placement fees.
That’s right. Dave works on Reflik as an independent recruiter on a part-time basis – placing candidates and earning thousands of dollars.
We spoke with Dave to see exactly how Reflik gives freelance recruiters like him the opportunity to recruit for jobs they want to work on, when and from where they want to work on them.
Here are just three ways Dave recruits successfully on the Reflik platform – these are steps part-time recruiters can take today to begin placing candidates and earning thousands in placement fees:
1. Focus on your niche
“As a part-time recruiter, I cannot create instant volume [of candidates] for every job I work on,” Dave said. “I focus on low-competition jobs that are in my niche, jobs that no one can work on better than me.”
All of the jobs available on the Reflik platform are categorized by function, industry, location, and more.
Dave wants to focus on IT and engineering jobs. On the Reflik platform, Dave is only a few clicks away from finding the perfect job to work on (out of hundreds of jobs across functional roles and industries).
2. Dedicate time
“I like to look for bigger blocks of time to work independently. An hour here and an hour there is not efficient. I find one job in my niche and dedicate 2 to 3 hours to really focus on sourcing candidates.”
The best recruiters, dedicated to really making a dent and filling positions, know the importance of dedication to be true. They also know there is almost nothing more important than gathering information about a job, figuring out what an employer wants in a candidate and giving it to them. They understand that they need a service that fits to their busy schedules.
3. Gather insight
Reflik’s resources – webinars, account managers, the recruiting alliance team that is responsible for making the recruiting experience on Reflik as smooth as possible, and more – are dedicated to serving our community of independent recruiters. This means that we are available when you are.
Reflik webinars are live and interactive. And, if you miss a webinar you were really looking forward to, we have a convenient page with webinar recordings.
Webinars serve a critical role in Dave’s recruiting strategy. “Webinars give me what I like to call a ‘talk track,’” he explained. The insight Dave gathers from webinars helps him persuade and sell his candidates on any particular job.
What’s more, our dedicated account managers have a quick turnover time. You email them a question, they will get back to you within the next business day.
Closing up the conversation, Dave told us: “I am aware of other platforms. Reflik is different. I have a direct connection to Account Managers. We have meaningful conversations and, most importantly, there are no blackholes…where my candidates and their resumes get lost.”
