The Significance of Candidate Placement Data in Choosing the Right Recruiter

Recruiter Placements are Key

In our discussions with numerous employers seeking insights on the key factors they consider when evaluating individual recruiters, one aspect consistently stands out: the recruiter's placements. But why is this so important?

There are three primary reasons why employers value placement data when selecting a recruiter:

Impressive Company Track Record

Employers are keen to see that you've been hired by, and successfully delivered results for, reputable companies they hold in high esteem.

High-Quality Placements

Employers want to be able to review the LinkedIn profiles of the candidates you've placed, and find them to be impressive ("I wish this recruiter could find me a candidate of this caliber"). Additionally, they want to see that these candidates remained with the company for a reasonable duration.

Relevant Experience

Employers are interested in examining your professional history to assess its relevance to their specific needs. This can include functional relevance, such as the stage of the company or working with organizations in the same industry, among other factors. Ultimately, the aim is to instill confidence in the employer that the recruiter has the required expertise and experience.
