Marzette Henderson is the kind of recruiter who looks at the bigger picture of things, especially in the staffing/recruitment industry. He enjoys knowing that his work as a recruiter brings positive, impactful change in the lives of his candidates. Marzette explains, “I just love to connect people with opportunity. I hope that the opportunities I present to my candidates will allow them to provide for their families, improve their professional careers, and give them a sense of purpose.”
Henderson finds fulfillment in tasks that may seem mundane. “I just love it all: the whole process of recruiting, even checking emails, making calls, networking.” Nevertheless, he finds that staying on top of the political, social, and economic context in which recruiters do their work is as important as these day-to-day tasks.
“The changes happening to recruiting are bigger than the field itself.” As a 12-year veteran in recruiting, specializing in the healthcare industry, Henderson understands the influence policy has on recruiting. The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, has created nearly one million jobs. Changes to this Act by the new administration, then, can certainly affect America’s job market.
However, for Henderson, “the recruiting industry is still the [best] it has ever been in a long time. There are more opportunities, more platforms, and resources to help recruiters. Because of all this, recruiters are more empowered.” Technology offsets the tumultuous changes caused by social, economic, and political changes.
Reflik is able to do this by crowdsourcing talent. Before Reflik, indeed, a variety of variables destabilized the recruiting industry and kept recruiters from recruiting – none of which were necessarily a recruiter’s merit. Recruiters were bogged down by trying to acquire new business – whether that meant finding work at an agency or becoming an approved vendor. Employers could hire only so many recruiters. So, no matter how good a recruiter was at filling jobs, they were unable to recruit.
Reflik simplifies the whole process, stripping recruiting down to its most important function: finding top candidates. We’ve got jobs. You’ve got candidates. It is just that easy.
Henderson concluded: “I believe Reflik is a blessing to the industry. It lowers the barrier of entry for anyone who wants to recruit. It is easy to use and straightforward.” There are jobs of all kinds, cutting across functions and industries.
