Candidate FAQs

How do recruitment agencies work?
There are many recruitment models in the industry. At Vlaad and Company, clients hire us to find great candidates that match their needs. Many candidates assume that going directly to the company increases their appeal as they come without a “headhunting” fee. However, recruiters are hired to manage the whole recruiting process. In addition, clients engage our services in part because they want us to meet and screen candidates, avoiding a dual recruitment process. In essence, fees are paid for the entire recruitment process, not just levied on the successful candidate.
What is the recruitment process like for a candidate?
We can only speak to our process, which is best defined as “respectful.” Our recruitment process is dynamic, and multifaceted. We do our best to control the elements of a search that need controlling, such as logistics and negotiations. Our goal is to ensure you feel respected throughout the search process, regardless of the outcome.

Can you provide tips on how to ask for career to introduce yourself to a recruiter on LinkedIn?
Never open with an ask – try to add value first. Provide the recruiter with market colour, compensation ranges, news, etc. This demonstrates you are “in the know” and will provide the recruiter with confidence that you are a valuable candidate. The recruiter will then think more holistically about opportunities for you.
Do you have any tips on how to manage my professional brand?
Your professional brand is about how you are represented both digitally and in-person.

As an example, have you searched your name in Google recently? You should. Make sure that what the web is saying about you is the most up-to-date, powerful and best representation of your brand.

Remember, the internet is permanent. Make sure your most important posts are the most prominent.
