hiring manager relationshipOnce upon a time, there was a recruiter and a hiring manager. The recruiter and the hiring manager relationship was great. In fact, they were best friends. One day, the hiring manager asked the recruiter to find them candidates for a job they were trying to fill. “I would love to,” said the recruiter. The recruiter went to their Applicant Tracking System and found three perfect candidates.

They sent their information to the hiring manager. “These are the best candidates I have ever seen,” said the hiring manager. “I can interview them tomorrow!” The next day the hiring manager met all three candidates, they liked all of them but decided to hire candidate number two. They liked candidate number two so much, they offered them 10K more than they were asking for. The candidate, the hiring manager, and the recruiter had a cake to celebrate and all three of them lived happily ever after.

In my dreams, this is the way it would happen. But the reality of the hiring manager relationship with recruiters is pretty grim. One of the top complaints of recruiters is their inability to get timely feedback from their hiring managers no matter what they try.

  • Common mistakes recruiters make when working with hiring managers.
  • Strategies for building positive relationships with hiring managers.
