It’s always important to keep in touch with the client: that way you can focus on the demands of a specific company, follow the changes, and stay on top of the situation. However, it’s just as vital to remember about your candidates: you never know when you’ll need one.
A gaming company that develops the most popular social, casual, and card online games, was in search of Data Engineering Manager. Spoiler alert! We filled that position in a day. How? It’s all about networking.
I KNOW A GUY
Our recruiters are in touch with many candidates even when they are not on the market for a job. In this case, our recruiter got a recommendation on one strong data engineer, and by that point they had known each other for a year. This candidate was give interviews from time to time but never went to any companies our recruiter suggested, even when he got an offer.
But once this position was in, the recruiter realized that it was the perfect match for his data engineering friend. While processing the position, the recruiter contacted the candidate: would you like to try this one?
The questions from the candidate were broadcasted live to the client, and the answers travelled back the same way immediately. As soon as the position was fully moved under the jurisdiction of the agency, the recruiter introduced the very same data engineer, all in under one working day.
