We hope this helps you understand
what skills are required to become a
virtual recruiter and work from the
comfort of your home!
Timing is everything!
And...this is a GREAT time to become a virtual
recruiter! Why?
• Because the old staffing agency model is
slowly dying and being replaced by experienced
virtual recruiters working from home!
• There is a looming labor shortage being caused
by the current generation of retiring Baby
• Spectra is hiring and training virtual recruiters
In fact, did you know that, starting this year,
one baby boomer will retire every 8 seconds
for the next 18 years?
This is one of the big reasons that virtual
recruiters will be in demand.
Working Independently
Up until the last couple of years, you HAD
to work for someone else if you wanted to
the advantages of a large firm in the
staffing and recruiting industry...
because the fees and overhead just made
it too expensive to work on your own.
The Recruiting Industry ...
stays the same but is also constantly
• Just as the basics of recruiting remain the
same, the requirements for a recruiter are
always changing
• Technology and downsizing alone have caused
drastic changes for recruiters over the past two
or three years.
Although nearly 60% of on-site recruiters
were downsized during the current
economic downturn, many have 'gone
rogue' and discovered the wonderful
world of independent recruiting.
In fact, recent studies show that virtual
recruiters working from home are
actually MORE productive than on-site
OK...So, how do I become a
virtual recruiter?
The first step is to understand the
job description and daily habits of
an experienced recruiter.
Then, determine whether you have
the skills and commitment to be
trained as a successful full-cycle,
money-making recruiter.
The following job requirements are
NOT all inclusive but will give you a
pretty good idea of what the daily tasks
of a virtual recruiter will be.
The first list of '8' comes from the
'traditional staffing agency' and
requires 'cradle to grave' knowledge of
the placement process.
Here are some of the most important:
relationship building through industry
knowledge and being a valuable
resource to your clients and
candidates (you gain insights here
with experience and training)
creatively recruiting the best possible
candidates through screening,
interviewing and passive recruiting
techniques (Spectra provides the
latest passive recruiting and social
media recruitment tools)
controlling all critical aspects of a
successful placement including offer,
acceptance, transition (our on-line
training sessions cover these)
acting as liaison during the
resignation, counter-offer, start dates
and relocation details (always be
acting professionally and ethically at
all times (our reputation speaks for
being self-motivated with good
planning and time management skills
having good listening, writing and
communication skills
having strong computer skills,
internet savvy and knowledge of
social networking (must have the
basics here and be willing to learn)
The following job skills are used to
separate 'Excellent' Recruiters from
'Ordinary' Recruiters.
1. Know your industry and become a consultant to
your clients
2. Understand that job board candidates only
represent 20% of the possible workforce; most
candidates are happily employed and are NOT on
the job boards
3. Understand the baby boomer generation and
looming labor shortages being created because of it
Separating 'Excellent' Recruiters from
'Ordinary' Recruiters.
4. Know your personal metrics and how
to adjust them for best results
5. Know state-of-the-art recruiting
6. Always be 'in training'
Separating 'Excellent' Recruiters from
'Ordinary' Recruiters.
7. Listen TWICE as much as you speak;
know the right questions to ask
8. Learn how to leverage your time and
grow your business through outsourcing
You must be wondering...but is it
really worth it?
The answer is a definite YES!
A contingency fee recruiter or in-house
corporate recruiter with full cycle recruiting
skills can easily earn between $50,000 and
$120,000 a year -- depending on their
skills and experience.
Contract recruiters can earn anywhere from
$20 to $75 per hour depending on their
skills and the industry.
And the one real PLUS?
Not only can you earn a very
generous income but you will have
the luxury of working from home!
The most important ingredient for a
successful career in virtual recruiting guessed it!
Two important questions for your
chosen virtual recruiter team and
#1 – Will I learn all of the 'traditional'
and 'future' qualifications that are
required to be an excellent recruiter?
(those listed in this slide presentation)
#2 – Will I receive ongoing training?
Recruiting is not rocket science! You are not
born with recruiter skills - they are all learned.
And, in today's fast-paced world, the recruiter
with the best training, communication skills and
time management will WIN every time in this
exciting career opportunity of the future.
