Never worked with a recruiter before? Curious about the relationship? Please read the article in the link at the bottom to get a general idea of how recruiters work and then compare it to how we work.
Aorist works on a job order basis. This means that we keep in contact with many companies and respond to their staffing needs as they develop. Our focus is on small to medium size engineering and manufacturing companies along the Colorado Front Range and in the Boise area. When a need arises, we search out candidates for the client’s job. We do not search out jobs for candidates. However, we are interested in keeping in touch with individuals who are searching for jobs - we may not have the right match at the moment, but your skill set could be perfect for the next opening we get. We typically search our internal database before we search other job sites.
When matching resumes, we are looking for the things that are most important to our client. Often our client is focused on a particular skill set or experience in a particular industry, and if we hope to fill the job we have to address their needs.
Sometimes clients have changing needs and their job descriptions will morph. They may start out believing that a general skill set will meet their requirements, but then decide they need a more specific skill set. Sometimes clients are eager to make a quick decision and interview candidates right away, and sometimes they want to see a lot resumes before they make a decision. Our clients are human beings dealing with dynamic situations, and its very tough for recruiters to predict what they’ll do.
We are paid by the client company when our candidate begins working at their company. We focus on creating relationships that last, because we want to work with our clients and candidates over and over again!
We welcome replies to our job postings and always appreciate it when candidates inform us of how they meet the requirements for the job, and also what they may be lacking. This is simple to convey in a concise cover letter along with your resume.
The more information you provide, the better. We want to understand your whole job history, and all of the skills you have acquired. We don’t know what you don’t tell us. If you have skills matching an opening and they are not described on your resume, you need to add them to your resume or tell us in a brief cover letter.
The recruiting business is fickle. We need one thing one moment, and another the next. We can’t make any promises that we will place you. However, we take great care in presenting our candidates, because that is what creates great placements! We’re looking forward to finding a good match for you.
