Subject Matter Expert Application
What is a SME?
Alan Barry Consultants has instituted a Subject Matter Expert (SME) program to assist our recruitment team in the challenging process of qualifying candidates with a diverse and sometimes highly technical skill set. ABC believes that a recruiter’s primary duty of sourcing and uncovering the best talent for our client’s needs is a daunting task just by itself. In the past, many staffing firms have relied on references and key-word matches to finalize their qualification process, while ABC also believes these steps to be integral to the sourcing and candidate qualification cycle we believe it is not enough. Our SME program engages experienced professionals with a proves track record in their arena of expertise. Our SME’s will often assist ABC Account Managers to scope new Job Order’s in an effort to fully understand our clients, it helps to have that robust knowledge and understanding to ask the RIGHT questions during the Job Scoping Process. Additionally, a SME may be called on to personally interview candidates, review resumes and advise the ABC recruitment team of industry associations and networking events that could lead to new and before unknown candidates that could be a great fit for our clients.
