Where it All Began

Eddie Drye's IT background began in 1980. Eddie enjoyed software development and in 1996 he started Synergy Digital Services, Inc. which he later renamed to Avoli, Inc. After Eddies frustration in many years of work with IT Recruiting agencies Eddie saw a better option.

Thus was born EDDIE, a Global Human Resource Consulting Firm.

More About Eddie

The Problem

Eddie and IT industry individuals have studied the problems and the forces that challenge Recruiting in general and how IT professionals can stay gainfully employed while Clients feel not taken advantage of.

There is a an increasivelly collective rage in the Candidate community against the Recruiting process and at the same time Clients increasivelly looking for ways to cut costs and remove the barriers to hire a Candidate fulltime.

The Perception

Recruitment Agencies just hurl CVs at clients until one happens to be good

Not all recruitment agencies operate this way. Trouble is, the ones that do tar the reputation of those that don't. Proving to clients that you don't belong to the spray-and-pray school of recruitment is all in the ratios. Make sure you're monitoring how many CVs you present against how many interviews they request, and how many interviews it takes to get a hire.

They say they'll call back, but they never do!

This one is one of the most frequent candidate complaints, but it's really easy to remedy: respond to every applicant, however underqualified they may be for the job. Most recruitment software can do this automatically but for new businesses working off a spreadsheet, it'll only take 10 minutes to draft a template to copy and paste to unsuccessful applicants. No more excuses!

Recruiters take a fat commission for just a bit of admin work

For anyone who has ever had to recruit, this is pretty laughable - but a lot of people genuinely believe that's all there is to recruitment. Could this be what your client thinks? Set the record straight by being transparent about your processes. If necessary, remind them how many sources you had to search, how many CVs you had to go through, and how many calls you had to make to reach your shortlist. Even if you've got nothing to report, make regular contact to explain how far along you are with their job.

They don't know anything about the jobs they're recruiting for

Particularly in professional services and niche markets, candidates are quick to judge recruiters on their technical knowledge. It's tricky to strike a balance between being reassuring candidates that you understand their industry without being scrutinised for the skills you do or don't have yourself. A little knowledge helps a lot though. Take an extra-curricular interest in the areas you recruit for and you'll surprise those candidates with low expectations, immediately setting you apart from other agencies. You don't need to be an expert to be better than the competition!

Recruitments Image Problem

For the most part, the bad reputation that plagues the recruitment sector is down to bad communication and poor marketing. Clients and candidates need to know who they're working with, and recruiters need to be open about their process.

As the job market becomes ever more candidate-centric, it's important to forget the hard sales tactics that worked in the past. Now, persuasive and convincing branding will make all of the difference, and it will help a recruitment agency to stand out for the right reasons. Couple that with a more holistic and considered approach, and we can go a long way towards repairing our industry's battered reputation.
