He replied “Oh that’s not necessary I’m just going to place an ad on one or two job boards.” Smiling, I said, “OK, but let me know if I can help! There’s no cost unless we find the person you want. Sorting resumes and running background checks can become time consuming and expensive doing it yourself.”
Three weeks later he called and said he was sorry he hadn’t taken me up on my offer in the first place. He had spent a lot of money on ads and received a deluge of resumes, but most respondents didn’t have anything close to the experience and skills required. I told him my company received the same mountain of resumes and applications daily, but we have many, many jobs we can match people up to instead of a single one.
We got to work looking for just the right candidate for my friend. We had someone in place within a week and not only did he thank us but said he would never ‘just run an ad’ again.
