In general, Yes, but also they are not good enough!
Today, I read an article from Brigette Hyacinth at LinkedIn
HR and Recruiters – Get it right the first time.
Yes, I would agree, but you need to take into consideration that the quality of the HR Managers and Recruiters should be questioned first.
I Advise to people often that reaching out will cut the story short and they do not have to expect an answer in any professional way. Hence it is proven record that the quality of the HR and Recruiters are below standards we are teaching.
A selecting process should be a return in a short time, not to burden the Job Seekers opportunity.
Two failures are applying within.
The first is to damages the Job Seekers enthusiasm for the Job and also postpone potential recruitment force into waiting mode.
The second is damage to other Companies while withholding valuable resources.
Also, I recommend to the Job seekers to consider that company again as it employs the HR or engages Recruiters.
Don’t you agree?
