One of the things I like most about the recruiting business is how you grow into your career. Over time you begin to take advantage of pattern recognition and intuitively grasp the subtleties of human nature. Not that you can control anything; but damage control becomes second nature. At the very least you learn how to predict and deal with the usual trouble spots.

The other thing I like most about our business is the freedom. You can work seamlessly from just about any location you choose with the exception of a U2 concert or a football game. Anywhere you can jack in and get cell phone reception you are in business. And that is so cool.

I envision a future in recruiting where I can take full advantage of the freedom, technology advances, continuous learning opportunities and enjoyment of representing great companies and world class talent. I can visualize a life style where I travel and work from different locations around the world. I think it would be great fun to blog about recruiting from Mexico for instance.

One thing is certain, if you are a recruiter, you are keeping your mind active and pushing the edge of the analysis envelope every day. That to me is more fun than working the crossword puzzle. I can’t think of a better way to earn and learn.
