CFO by day, hiring manager by night
...unfortunately, though, I’ve lately been getting more
involved with hiring. What I’ve discovered is that most of the hiring channels
this company has been exploiting for 10-odd-years are ridiculously expensive.
And quite honestly, the quality of employees obtained from these channels
simply does not justify the cost. There are a few exceptions, like the
recruiting company Dayak – but their model, which pools together recruiters
that compete to fill job openings, is highly anomalous and lends itself to
lower prices as well. Most recruiting boards will suck at least 25% of new
employees’ salaries, as well as other fees. I’ve instructed the hiring managers
to be far more careful when they post job openings...
Any other successful avenues to pursue here?
