Meet Jennifer Simmons: With over a decade of experience in the recruiting and staffing industry as a corporate recruiter, Jennifer decided to set off by herself. She wanted to work as a freelance recruiter. For over a year now, Jennifer has done just that. She has become very familiar with recruiting online.
She has experimented with a number of services like Reflik, which bring jobs to professional recruiters who are looking to work remotely from home.
Reflik also works with staffing agencies that are looking to make more money by reducing costs in sales and business development.
Since she started working on Reflik, Jennifer was impressed.
She recently earned thousands of dollars filling a position at a leading global tax services firm, Ryan.
Based on our conversation with Jennifer, and what she has learned, we realized that there are three things every experienced recruiter thinking about becoming a freelance recruiter should know about Reflik:
1. Reflik understands that recruiters and Talent Crowdsourcing service providers are business partners
Reflik knows that recruiting takes a serious amount of skill. We are invested in the success of recruiters.
“Recruiting is a team effort,” Jennifer told us. “In everything it does, Reflik understands the value of experienced recruiters.”
2. Reflik has zero “stale” jobs.
There are many ways to know when a job has gone “stale.” You could spend days trying to find and attract the perfect candidate, wait weeks for feedback, to only find that the employer has abandoned the job.
In other cases, your talent crowdsourcing service provider simply does not have the rapport with an employer that they say they do. They have no procedure in place to deal with disengaged customers.
Reflik is different. Reflik takes pre-emptive measures to ensure employers are engaged with the Platform and are providing feedback to recruiters.
On Reflik, when a job seems to be going stale:
- The job is put on hold.
- Recruiters are alerted to stop searching for candidates for this particular job.
- The customer is held accountable and is asked to provide feedback to recruiters who have submitted resumes.
Recruiters can see first-hand the immense amount of engagement employers have on the Platform through the Candidate Pipeline.
Reflik’s Candidate Pipeline feature keeps track of candidates through the hiring process for each position.
“The Candidate Pipeline is constantly changing,” Jennifer told us. “There is constant feedback from employers as to what they are looking for in their next hire. It is hard work keeping up with all the incoming information, but the outcome is totally worth it.”
3. Reflik’s great communication puts freelance recruiters in control of their own success.
Jennifer walked us through how she filled the Tax Manager position with Ryan.
In-take calls connect Reflik recruiters with hiring managers and corporate recruiters on the client-side. These weekly calls provide an opportunity for recruiters to ask clients questions and provide their candidates the answers they deserve.
“I found the candidate three days after I began work on this position,” she said. “The intake calls that Reflik’s Account Managers conduct almost every week were critical in moving from finding a candidate to actually filling the position.”
In closing our conversation with Jennifer, we asked her if she had anything more to say about Reflik.
“I’ve done a lot of research,” Jennifer concluded. “I have not come across anything that compares to Reflik. This is why I work on Reflik exclusively.”
