Finding the right person for a role within the HubSpot ecosystem is no easy task, but it is a critical one. As a former HubSpot employee, I've seen partners and customers alike face a number of issues when it comes to recruiting for these positions, such as sifting through low-quality resumes from job board postings or hiring the wrong person because they didn't know exactly what to look for. I knew there had to be a better way, and thus, HubSearch was born.
As a recruiting agency, we aim to revolutionize the hiring process and bring on top-notch talent for HubSpot partners and customers. We recognized the shortcomings of staffing agencies and set out to create a game-changing approach to hiring that eliminates the transactional, impersonal, and disappointing experiences you may have encountered.
The Broken Recruiting World
Let's face it: staffing agencies have a reputation for being impersonal, draining your wallet, and wasting your precious time. They promise the world but deliver subpar candidates who aren't the right fit for your company. How did it come to this? Here are just a few issues plaguing traditional staffing agencies:
Staffing agencies are notoriously focused on getting clients in and out of the system with a candidate, regardless of whether they're a good fit or not. This results in a loss for everyone except the agency, which collects their fee and provides subpar results. The process is often a rushed one: post the job on various job boards and hope for the best. Unfortunately, this approach only attracts those actively seeking employment, many of whom aren't qualified for the position they're applying for. This leads to an overwhelming stack of resumes to sift through, with no guarantee of finding a suitable candidate. It's no wonder the traditional approach to hiring is failing.
Traditional staffing agencies are notorious for pushing candidates through the system regardless of whether or not they're truly the right fit for the position. They often prioritize speed and quantity over quality, leaving everyone except the agency itself disappointed with the results.
This is due in part to the method that many staffing agencies use: they repost your job on various job boards, hope for the best, and present you with a stack of resumes from applicants who check some boxes. Unfortunately, this approach only attracts those actively seeking employment, many of whom may not be qualified for the position they're applying for. Your time is wasted, and you're left with no guarantee of finding a suitable candidate.
Prepare to be treated like just another face in the crowd. Staffing agencies are more concerned with meeting their quotas than building a relationship with you. They skim through your job posting and resumes, providing minimal information about candidates. Their cookie-cutter approach means they ask the same generic questions to every potential candidate, barely scratching the surface of what truly matters for your team:Why are you looking for a job?
What type of position are you looking for?
What is your salary expectation?
Although these questions have a place and are important, they fail to consider things like culture fit, and they don't provide proof of expertise of the skills necessary to be successful in the role.
Throughout the staffing agency process, there are countless opportunities for dropped balls and disappointment. Candidates who seemed promising suddenly disappear without any explanation, leaving you back at square one. Even if the agency manages to find a decent fit for your position, there's no guarantee that the new hire will stick around. If they decide to leave or are let go shortly after starting, you're left with depleted resources and a position that still needs to be filled. It's a frustrating and costly cycle that traditional staffing agencies perpetuate, but it doesn't have to be that way!
