Retained all day long. To do the job effectively, maintain a superior level of service and truly offer value add, one must complete an extensive due diligence process and show the client what and how you differ from everyone else in the field. The issue with recruiting is the low barrier to entry, anyone can do it and most are poor at it. If you have the chance to remove yourself and seperate you from the competition, than do it. When you get that chance however, move with diligence. Impress the client with extras. And the next time you will get the retainer at the higher rate.
