A recruiter "of map" is a professional talent attraction which stands out for: 

  • Be methodical. 
  • Planned. 
  • Structured. 
  • He doesn't leave things to chance. 
  • Metrics fanatic.

On the other hand, a recruiter "of compass", as its name says, goes where the wind takes it and is characterized by: 

  • Be innovative. 
  • Disruptive. 
  • He is not afraid to improvise. 
  • Passionate about trying new trends. 
  • Handle changes and unforeseen events with ease. 

So the first step is to identify which of these qualities are present in your management when developing a Talent attraction strategy. 

What is that tool that you cannot miss to set your course? The map or the compass?

  • The desire to innovate makes you try many things, leaving unfinished processes; without giving them a prudent period to evaluate their performance. 
  • On some occasions, you recruitment You can become disorganized and this makes you neglect important aspects such as feedback and the experience you provide to your candidates
