What and Why?
Gopher's twin lists give you interruption protection.
In a perfect world, you could
power call all day but recruiters have to take
incoming calls especially if they are clients or hiring managers (well most hiring managers anyway). Recruiters
also need to respond
to questions from other recruiters about candidates and clients.
These interruptions, though necessary, make you lose focus and cost time from
your work flow. We know from our own experience that recruiters
often go home at the end of the day thinking "I didn't get
anything done today. Why?" The answer lies in interruptions.
Interruptions cost time in themselves but they also dissipate your
energy and make it hard to get on track again - just when you were on a roll!
interruption agents and help boost productivity. Take this scenario as an example:
- Left Click to profile tab
and search people you need for a job. A long list of a 100
candidates come up. Left clicks put you on List1.
- Reviewing the candidates
you are on candidate 78 and on a roll.
- A client calls and wants to
talk to you about a new job order. Of course you take the call
and you do a thorough job of taking down all the information you
need - right now - because you may not be able to reach the client
again for weeks and you have to write a good job order!
(See below for job order writing tips.) The time is now and you're on the phone for 45 minutes.
- It's been two hours
before you can get back to what you were doing. Of course you
had to use Gopher to record the new job, take notes and perhaps
even post the job. Have you lost all your work before you took
the call? No, because if you are using Gopher correctly, just click the top name above the profile tab
(List 1) and you are right
back to where you left off on candidate 78 of 100.
