Employer's Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why should I work with a Jonus Recruiter?
Your goal is to get the best candidate possible for your open position so that you can either generate revenue or save money. Our recruiters can locate the right candidate in a shorter time frame so that your goals can be achieved faster.
2. How much information should I provide to the recruiter?
The more information that you can provide about the position and your firm the better. This will help the recruiter zero in on your ideal candidate much sooner and waste less time speaking with candidates that are not an ideal fit. The key information to provide should include: complete salary information, benefits information, future opportunities for the perspective candidate within your organization, a complete description of duties, when available and any additional information pertaining to why a candidate should work for your firm. This information will help the recruiter get you the right candidates to interview.
3. How quickly can I expect to see candidates?
This will depend on how much information you give to our recruiters when establishing parameters for your job requirements as well as how accessible you and/or your team will be to strategize throughout this entire process. Please trust our recruiters to scour the candidate pool in your area to find you the right successful candidate.
4. How do I select a recruiter?
You should select a recruiter who is a specialist in your industry, understands your local market, and makes him or herself readily available to you both during the work day and off hours whenever possible.
5. Do I have to pay a fee to interview candidates?
No. Fees are only due after you select a recruiter's candidate and they start working for you.
6. How many candidates can I interview?
You can interview as many candidates as you would like, but keep in mind that the candidate you like could be interviewing at other organizations, and you are competing for their services.
7. Can I interview candidates from sources other than my recruiter?
Yes, you can interview candidates from multiple sources and select the best candidate for you.
8. Do I make the offer to the candidate, or does the recruiter?
You are the client and get to select how the offer is made. Most often, however, it is good to have the recruiter make the offer so that there is a buffer between you and the candidate in negotiations.
9. What happens if the candidate that I want turns my offer down?
You can either increase your offer and/or add other incentives such as sign on bonuses, car allowances, and laptops to the offer. If the person still does not accept, you can then go to your second choice or interview more candidates.
10. What one key thing can I do to increase the chances of getting the right candidate?
Never forget that while you are interviewing the candidate, they are also interviewing you. It is key to never lose sight of the fact that you should always put your best foot forward with every candidate and sell them on your company and why they should want to work there. Establish a positive reputation in the market and it will increase your chance of getting the candidate you desire.
