Hi Friends, Can you pls share with me different ways of Head hunting ? Very eager to know....pls reply.
Dear Sari !
Is that Head Hunting all about ?
I have a slightly different opinion about Head Hunting.
I believe Head Hunting is a process of recruitment where in you want to reach or contact a specific person on a specific designation in a company and you do not have a direct contact of him. I will consider it an Art which HR people possesses.
For example, if you want to hire a Project Manager from a specific IT company and you don't have his contact details, but you have got contact details of one of his team members, then you will first contact that team member and try to get the contact details of his Project Manager and that is why I consider it to be an Art.

HI Prashant, True, i accept your comment. I was trying to make him understand ways of headhunting.(usual & innovative)
Headhunting in recruitment is a very unique approach of tracing an individual based on the skeletal coordinates available with you at that time.To be a good headhunter,essential prerequisites are convincing skills,persuasion,ability to think beyond and good engagement skills.In fact search firms are adept at headhunting.It all boils down to passion.I believe if one has a passion towards recruitment,headhunting skills will be honed with time
Thanks a lot Sari,Prashant & Ryan for the prompt reply.. Others pls share your views,suggestions on other innovative ways of doing it...
And Sari,Prashant & Ryan ,being seniors i think you can share more about how to crack it. For eg; if iam want to poach a consultant /manager recruitment from an executive search firm/placement firm , how to do it ?
One way is by calling the board number ...and then what to ask ?

I could understand that you want to poach Manager from a consulting firm..
In that case, you may call up the board line asking for manager (need not say his name), and say that this is for a business, try talking as a new client..while conversing you may take all his details, take his personal number...and try poaching him. YOu need lot of tact while poaching senior members.

Head Hunting is usually done for Niche kind of requirments amd for Snr candidate whose profiles are not available on portals..
