when we talk about recruitment and selection By means of an indication these words send the following words to our thoughts: “IQ, “hot back”, fish, godparents, etc…” But is it really that bad for a company to recruit new employees through referrals through referrals from other employees of the firm itself? Bel Vazquez, an expert in this area for many years and a professional Head Hunter, has prepared a short text for you to consider and perhaps open your minds to new perspectives on this subject, read her authorial text below:
Would you recommend a doctor you've never seen? And a restaurant you've never eaten at? Would you recommend a store you've never even been to? But what if you had already heard very good things about them? What if a friend of yours had already commented well on them to you? Would you recommend it, but with the caveat that “look, I've never been, I don't know, but I've been told well?”
Referrals occur every day of our life. I bet if you had a serious problem to solve you would look for someone with references. If your child or someone you love was sick, would your first alternative be to ask a friend for help to refer you to a specialist or would you Google any doctor?
Why then are there people who believe that nominations are not fair in the job market? Of course, I'm not going to go into the merits of people who are not competent and who have hot backs and are put in office by exchange of favors (it's quite revolting when that happens, especially for HR who need to comply with these orders and hire even against their will …). For these people, the only advice I have is: stop complaining and strengthen your connections, leave the doors always open in every company you pass. Have allies in your career and you will be next.
