Two weeks ago, we got a new client from the ICT sector. The HR Manager sent us two job descriptions, open since begin of the year. Yes he had already met candidates but none of them was hired, no perfect matching. He had already spent lot of time and money in it.
Both jobs were posted onto our website (for free as usual). One of them (project management position) was directly forwarded (by e-mail) to all Connectors having shown interest for this kind of jobs.
Believe it or not, this job has been forwarded more than 60 times (identified on our site, so more in reality thanks to untracked forwards)…and 17 persons applied for the job…after three days!! Of course we didn’t send all CV’s as such to the client, we made a first CV screening and phoned candidates when the profile was indeed interesting for the open job…5 candidates were shortlisted and sent to the client.
The client decided to regroup all interviews on the next Tuesday, just 7 days after having sent us the job descriptions. 3 candidates were offered to meet some other people from the management during the week and one of them got an official job offer on Friday…a weekend of reflexion and GOAL! A real happy end as in AMerican movies:
1) The client found his perfect candidate
2) The candidate found his perfect job
3)…yes, a happy Connector, who had forwarded this job to the chosen candidate, earned 1250 EUR!
Let’s be honest, this is a perfect case, this happens not always so quickly but we already have many of such success stories! Just after 4 months of existence!
One of the happy founder
