ds of your hiring manager- especially if you are in staffing. If you do it though, I would be tactful and ask for guidance. Use what you have and after talking to the HM, and ask who else they reccomend you talk with to get a further perspective.
If you are a corporate recruiter, sure- talk to as many people as you want. Again- don't make them feel like they are less important though. Be non- threatening and inquisitive about the industry and you should be fine. …
maybe just a bit more inquisitive - but 102K in fees on 2 placements is alot of money in anyone's book. So the folks you are/were placing are in the 250K salary range?
When I left my old agency I realized I would not be getting paid ongoing commissions for the contractors I had in place at the time - but I would not have left 50K on the table.
Are we missing something? What made you decide you had to leave (right then) with some great sendouts on the books? I am just not seeing how a Senior Recruiter - negotiating 250K salaries for executive roles - would be so up-in-the-air about what to expect on this stuff.
I am now puzzled......…
as I get "older" (I'm only 37, but to some of my Gen Y friends, I'm the old guy now) is the power of experience and accomplishment. I read a quote from Sam Walton that I found appropriate: Q: Mr. Walton, what makes an executive effective? A: Two words- right decisions. Q: Mr. Walton, how do you learn how to make right decisions? A: One word- experience. Q: How do you get that experience? A: Two words- wrong decisions.
In short, continue to be respectful, inquisitive and more than anything, keep trying different things...you'll continue to gain valuable experience and in 10 years you'll be coaching and consulting to a new and younger generation, probably offering similar guidance.
All my best,
take my chances and welcome competition than cut my fee structure.]
So about 3 days later, I see Bob's Staffing put the same positions on a "split board", although the client specifically noted, "Do Not Post". So, being inquisitive, I called the client and asked if they knew Bob's Staffing, and they swore they didn't . . . although Bob's had been calling them 100x a day to "get the business."
In the end, Bob's Staffing was putting together a pipeline of candidates to present down the line. I know because I sub'd them a dummy resume with my phone number that they 'rejected due to lack of fit' . . . yet my phone rang 3 days later with Bob calling to introduce himself :)
I love this business :) There is never a dull moment :)…
heir own experiences which often engender bad feelings.
I do alter my style a bit as a recruiter depending who I'm talking with and if a type "A" or "B" personality. I do speak differently when first speaking with women than I do men as they generally react quite differently when "cold" recruited, which I now presume when contacting. For me, I'd much rather try to recruit men
But my basic style is the same--I'm just more aggressive and inquisitive in my job than I am in person as I realize as a recruiter sometimes my performing my role in a quest for effectiveness/success can make people nervous or uncomfortable. In my personal life I'd back off long before crossing that road.
