    I have a different perspective.
    If we as recruiters need to be respected as professionals, like a doctor, lawyer or Chartered accountant – there are three points we need to meet. ( Great book by Subroto Bagchi, founder Mindtree)
    These are the ability to work unsupervised, the ability to certify the completion of a job or task and, finally, the ability to behave with integrity at all times.
    I also highly recommend this article which explains what is expected of Recruiters!

    Neither of these writers allude to , a degree but when we aspire to be the best, it is better to set our eyes go beyond the minimum accepted norms!,Right:)!?


  2. Interesting you ask !

    IMHO, a recruiter is a sales person – selling jobs to candidates, or selling candidates to companies. And so in a market where the power of choice is now in the jobseekers favour, it is essential we become the ‘go-to’ recruiter ! The future belongs to the recruiter -who can build relationships/community .

    So how does one differentiate ourselves from the several other recruiters- it is the way we make the candidates feel- the engagement, the experience..

    It is said that Facts tell. Stories Sell.

    If we connect emotionally to any person, we have a better chance of not only being remembered, but also referred more often to their extended network. With increased credibility, our impact will be better

    In this world, everyone loves a winner. And so -having success stories -that a sure way to touch the chord in more candidates. Ofcourse, one has to be authentic, and be knowledgeable!

    More than ‘great’ success stories, I feel a genuine testimonial from a candidate-will go a long way in building one’s brand equity!!
