What methods do recruiters use to locate the perfect match?

When considering new members for our clients, we typically look for candidates who possess a combination of relevant skills and experience, a strong work ethic and a positive attitude. Additionally, we value candidates who demonstrate good communication skills, the ability to work well in a team and a willingness to learn and grow with the company. Ultimately, our top choices will be those who we believe will be the best fit for our team and who will contribute to the success of our client’s business.  my alt text

We recently conducted a LinkedIn poll to see which applicants are hiring managers' top options when adding a new member to their team, and it was discovered that a person with a can-do attitude is the best option for picking a team member. 

Yes, in a perfect world. The individual can tick all of our client’s boxes. However, there are situations when we have some individuals who fulfil some but not all of the criteria. It will be a difficult decision when we have to choose one for our clients. Here is the checkbox we typically use when recruiting the best candidates for our clients: 

  • Relevant Skills and Expertise: Look for candidates who possess the necessary skills and expertise required for the specific role. Consider their educational background, work experience, and any relevant certifications or qualifications.
  • Team Player: Seek individuals who demonstrate strong collaboration and communication skills. They should be able to work effectively with others, contribute to a positive team environment, and be open to sharing knowledge and ideas.
  • Problem-Solving Abilities: Look for applicants who showcase critical thinking and problem-solving skills. They should be able to analyse challenges, propose creative solutions, and adapt to changing circumstances.
  • Adaptability and Flexibility: Consider candidates who are adaptable and open to change. They should be able to handle new situations, adjust their approach when necessary, and embrace innovation and growth.
  • Motivation and Enthusiasm: Look for individuals who are motivated and passionate about their work. They should demonstrate a genuine interest in the field or industry, as well as a willingness to learn and contribute to the team's goals.
  • Emotional Intelligence: Consider candidates who possess emotional intelligence and are empathetic towards others. This includes having good interpersonal skills, the ability to manage conflicts constructively, and an understanding of different perspectives.
  • Reliability and Accountability: Seek candidates who are dependable and accountable for their work. They should be able to meet deadlines, take ownership of their responsibilities, and deliver high-quality results.


These are the enquiries and discussions we have with our candidates during video calls. Using this method, we have a 98% success rate in matching talents to clients.

However, It's important to note that the specific requirements and preferences may vary depending on the nature of the team and the role being filled. It's always a good idea to tailor the criteria to your team's unique needs and culture.
