Hiring consultants: Are they worth their hefty fees?

By Thom Holmes, ITworld.com |  Career

  • Hiring consultants can locate candidates more quickly and put them on the job
    sooner than company managers can, which has a more immediate positive impact on the
    business.
  • Hiring consultants differ from traditional executive recruitment firms in several
    ways. First of all, you can expect hiring consultants to become intimately familiar
    with the needs and the psychology of your organization. They will spend a good deal of
    time in your office conducting research, sizing up the situation, and profiling the
    kinds of candidates that will work best for you. Hiring consultants on an hourly fee
    are generally less expensive than fee-based recruiters. Finally, a consultant is going
    to give you undivided attention; an executive search firm will put your needs in the
    rotation with those of other clients.
