Did you know that over 40% of the US professional working population is unidentifiable online?
Many believe that LinkedIn and Facebook are the silver bullets for their recruiting problems - they're great tools but hardly game changers if you want to hire top tier talent. Keep in mind that the United States has a population of 314 million people and only 14.2% of them have a LinkedIn profile. Most successful professionals either don't have accounts with LinkedIn and Facebook or they rarely log in, they simply don't have the time. Contrary to popular belief - even with today's social media, resume grabbers, aggregators, spider engines, job board alerts, and much more at our finger tips - recruiting top talent is still a personal referral and phone business.
Recruiting is about picking up the phone
We do not post your jobs on Indeed, PRSA and LinkedIn and wait for someone to apply. You could do that yourself. We spend all of our time building relationships with people who have experience, passion and proven results.
Remember, not everyone is looking for a job, but everyone is available to change jobs. MVP helps you actually do something about tapping into the passive 95% of the talent pool. We believe that everyone is a candidate - all the time. And it is up to us to convert them into active candidates, not wait for them to come to us.
You've been recruiting and simply can’t find qualified talent? You’ve searched your Applicant Tracking System and external resume databases, posted your jobs on the most compelling sites, and utilized all of the latest social networking tools, but the quality of the candidate pipeline is still lacking.
Many position openings, said to be “challenging” or “difficult,” are neither
It’s just that the qualified talent has not been identified, called, and compelled to consider the opportunity. Many recruiters and talent acquisition and staffing specialists settle for nearly-qualified hires because they have forgotten the free resource that can produce the on-target talent they seek: THE TELEPHONE.
There is absolutely no substitute for calling into a company, identifying the individual who heads your competing organization, and speaking with that individual.
It takes hard work, skill and time to identify and reel in the truly passive qualified talent from the very companies from which you most want to hire. It can't be done online.
