RecruitAlliance helps corporate recruiters facilitate quality relationships with agencies.In Superbowl XLVI, the New York Giants and the New England Patriots battled it out on the field to determine the best NFL team for 2012. In the realm of recruiting, corporate recruiters and agency talent specialists battle it out to uncover the top talent in their target industries. Can these two types of recruiting specialists co-exist, to increase overall productivity for all parties involved?

If we were to sit down corporate recruiters from across the country and ask them what's the most positive aspect of their relationships with external staffing and recruiting agents, you might be surprised to know that most of them realize that external recruiters are better equipped to deliver exceptional talent for their most hard-to-fill positions. Sure, they aren't thrilled to field call after call from headhunters marketing their MPCs, but the majority realize that these specialists can deliver "the goods."

How can corporate recruiters build better relationships with the external agencies who can bring them the best candidates, when they are truly needed? Here are 4 tips to facilitate quality interactions with staffing and recruiting specialists, and how to maximize these partnerships to their fullest.
