Civil engineer recruitment isn’t easy. In addition to finding a skilled candidate, you’re also tasked with finding someone who perfectly aligns with your company culture. This requires a lot of time and experience you just don’t have.
Teaming up with a recruiter can ease this burden, but you’re a bit skeptical — and rightfully so. If you haven’t worked with a staffing firm before, it can be hard to comprehend recruiters’ level of expertise.
Here’s why you can feel confident you’ll get the best possible culture fit for your team when you take on a staffing partner.
3 Ways Recruiters Help You Find the Best Cultural Fit
They Immerse Themselves in Your Culture
Any recruiter worth your time wants to please you. They know every company is different, so they’ll take the time to really learn about your culture. This might include spending time observing your team and asking plenty of questions to understand what unites and powers the group. This will help them spot candidates who possess the necessary personality traits to mesh with the team.
They Choose Interview Questions Strategically
Interviewing for company culture isn’t easy. If you haven’t done it before, it can be hard to know which questions to ask to determine whether a candidate is a match for your team. This is a non-issue when you work with a recruiter because they do this for a living. They’ll ask plenty of behavioral interview questions to learn as much as possible about a candidate’s personality, instead of focusing solely on their skills and experience.
They Know Which Signs to Look For
During the interview process, candidates give plenty of non-verbal cues about their fit for a company, and recruiters know just how to spot them. As hiring experts, they look for clues a lesser trained eye wouldn’t catch. Some of these signs might seem unimportant — i.e., handwriting a thank you note, instead of sending it via email — but recruiters know these seemingly small details are telling.
