The Other Side of Recruiting, Inspired by Adele

You have probably heard ‘Hello,’ the latest masterpiece from Adele. However, you may not have realized how true it rings to recruiters! On the crusade to assist companies with critical hiring needs, we make thousands of phone calls in order to build a strong relationship. Sometimes, those calls go unanswered for quite some time. Cue Adele and a slight modification of ‘Hello.’

Hello, it’s me
I was wondering if after all these calls you’d like to connect

To go over how I can help
They say that talking can reveal your needs, but I’ve not heard

Hello, can you hear me?
I’m in Alabama thinking about how I can help

When I have a candidate for your hospital
I’ve not forgotten how it feels to be ignored

There’s not much difference between us
And less than a million miles

Hello from the other side
I must’ve called a hundred times
To tell you I can find you the best candidates
But when I call you never seem to be available

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m the only account executive you’ll ever need

Hello, how are you?
I don’t mean to annoy you
I hope that you’re well
Did you ever find that critical hiring need you were looking for?

It’s no secret that the both of us
are on the same mission

So, Hello from the other side
I must’ve called a hundred times
To tell you I can find you the best candidates
But when I call you never seem to be available

I look forward to saying ‘hello’ to you soon!
