As a VP working inside three startups, I became frustrated with the whole recruiting process. I kept receiving low quality resumes from recruiters, followed by lame emails, “How about this resume?” Something was broken here.
At the time, I didn’t know why the resumes were so wrong. Then I uncovered the problem in one word -“Contingency”. The dirty little secret about recruiting is that the contingency model is flawed. Companies who use contingency recruiters do not realize that they are getting lower talent, less commitment to the search, less vetting of candidates and little loyalty from contingency recruiters.
The contingency recruiters aren’t bad people. The problem is the business model, not the people. Most recruiting is Contingency based and is built on a LOW COMMITMENT RELATIONSHIP for both the company and the recruiter.
Both parties are to blame here. Companies fall into the contingency recruiter model because they believe it’s “low risk”. And contingency recruiters say its easier to get a foot in the door at your company with a contingency search.
Righting a Wrong
So, after exiting my third startup, I decided to do something about it. TigerRecruiting was born out of this frustration. My mission is to be the recruiting service that I wish I had access to during my career. My service is built on the Partner Recruiting model.
The Better Way
The Partner Recruiting model is based on a HIGH COMMITMENT RELATIONSHIP with you. You will put some skin in the game with a retainer. And we will have your company’s interests and goals foremost in mind during the search. You will get the best and most honest advice we can give you and you will get the best candidates available. Guaranteed!
Building a great company is hard work. You shouldn’t have to settle for the resumes passed around by the crowd of “low-commitment” contingency recruiters. Hire a partner.
