Sales Recruiters


Challenges faced by Sales Recruiters

There are a lot of people out there looking for opportunities, but you must identify the top sales candidates fit for the job. Hiring new workers can be a frustrating job, interviewing hundreds of candidates and running out of patience with each successive candidate. Recruiters need to connect with candidates through the noise of all the other recruiters trying to reach out to the same candidates. They face a lot of challenges while doing that. A few of those obstacles faced by recruiters are discussed below:

1) Stress: Along with a lucrative remuneration package, you need to face long hours and a lot of stress being a Job Recruiter. Often stress can result in destructive and antisocial behavior with excessive drug and alcohol consumption. It is a pretty stressful job, so you just need to ease the pressure and redress the balance and the best way achieve that is meditation. Studies have shown meditation to be an effective way to remove clutter from your mind. Or you can consult a therapist.

2) Competition: Every other day you hear about a new startup competition with a billion-dollar idea. It is quite difficult to compete with the attractiveness and success of these startups. Demand for highly skilled sales professionals is strong, but candidates are quite few. Recruiters using antiquated practices for hiring, have the risk of losing quality applicants at the beginning of the process. So, in order to compete in this highly competitive market, you need to promote your brand and have an effective employee referral program. The goal is to differentiate yourself from your competitors.

3) Time consuming Interviews: For promoting the job opportunity, multiple ads are posted which results in your inbox flooded with resumes. Now you’ve got to go through them all to find the best of the potential candidates, then you’ve got to interview the shortlisted ones individually to see if they really are as promising as they seem on paper. But with the help of digital interview platforms, these time-consuming interviews can be whittled down.

4) Disputes with Hiring Manager:  A number of issues can arise between recruiters and their hiring managers. Sometimes they just aren’t on the same page regarding selected candidates. So, try to make the hiring process a more collaborative one with your hiring manager. Meet at regular intervals strategies to choose the best candidates. With the help of a Video Interview platform, you can easily share your responses with your hiring managers, which is a much collaborative method than sending hundreds of emails back and forth.
