Dear All,
I'm new to this citehr,working as technical recruiter in a company
I would appreciate if anyone could answer below questions often faced by recruiters
  • What are the challenges faced by recruiters?
  • What is the turn around time?
  • How to identify the fake resumes?
Thank you for your time and effort

#1 Think Before You Search

“Give me 6 hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first 4 hours sharpening the axe.” – Abraham Lincoln
That’s become one of my favorite quotes to use when stressing the importance of thinking before throwing some keywords together and hitting “search.”
Too many sourcers and recruiters are unknowingly picking up dull axes and begin taking swings. I’m not sure if you’ve ever tried chopping down a tree with a dull axe, but it’s neither efficient nor effective, and requires considerably more effort than necessary. If you just take the time to think, develop some semblance of a search strategy, and experiment with various searches (sharpen your axe!) – you can get to more relevant results more quickly.

#2 Do Not Overanalyze Resumes

Chances are that the people you are trying to find and recruit are not professional resume writers. Whether they are software engineers, lawyers, physical therapists, project managers, or database administrators – they are NOT professional resume writers, nor do I think we should expect them to be.
#3 Do Not Run Overly Generic/Basic Searches

If you run generic searches with perhaps 1 title and a couple of basic keywords – you’ll be sure to get correspondingly generic and basic results. I’ve heard many a recruiter complain about getting “too many results.” People making this mistake unknowingly increase the size of the Hidden talent pool
#4 See Each Resume as More than a Potential Match for the Position You’re Working on

#5 Run Multiple Searches Across Multiple Sources

#6 Search ALL Resumes

#7 Don’t Submit the First 2 -3 Candidates You Find/Speak With

The turnaround time depends on the Priority and the exclusivity of a requirement. The sooner the better to find the right match.

Fake resumes can be identified with:
Absence of any personal details
- Date of Birth
- Passport Number
- Home Address
- No clear details of the work exprience
Some more hints :
Here are some signs to look out for:
1)Interviewee is not very comfortable with impromptu answers.
2)Interviewee frequently asks you to repeat questions.
3)Interviewee takes a long time to answer.
4)The person stutters initially and then recites the answer flawlessly.

Cheers !!
