n do attitude but set clear expectations on what they can deliver on--they have solutions that work for you and are realistic about time and cost of implimentation
--They are masters of follow up; when they say they are going to follow up they do; if they miss a deadline you know up front they are going to miss it
--Once the relationship is established they push you to think differently about they way you do business; they look for real solutions and challenge the status quo and corporate bueracracy that you are in
--They measure their success and proactively address this with you
--They don't waste your time or money--if you don't need something they don't sell it
--You have open lines of communication so both parties can give constructive feedback without having feelings hurt--focus on the issue and resolve it quickly--whether on the client or vendor end
--People who have a passion for the field they operate in--if they are just a sales person to make money I'm instantly turned off; of they know their industry; know whos the best; study the best; show their passion--then they are golden
--They treat your organization the same way you would treat it
nd 15-30 minutes just sitting there in the quietness of the morning and meditate. Clear all internal chatter form your mind and focus on the oneness and perfection that is our universe.Focus on asking this question; How can I be of service today? How can I do GOD's work today?Repeat it until it becomes a mind mantra. What you will find is that eventually, the world (GOD) will listen and give you the opportunity to be of service.Now you have the mental capacity to reach out to anyone, anytime, anywhere and be able to see clearly how you are capable of helping them. You instantly stop making it about yourself and make it about others.This is not only the secret to a fulfilled and happy lifestyle, it also applies to all relationships in your life.God bless all the recruiters out there and I hope my message reaches all needy ears with peace and love.JavierRecruiterjarce@superbtechinc.comSuperb Tech Inc
desire however braces and University/College for three kids got in the way!) I can completely relate to Adam. The stress relief of being on the open road riding a motorcycle is one of the greatest feelings.
Like Will this is my second go in the industry as I did try my hand at combining two other passions, Sales and Hockey, however selling season tickets, advertising and suite rentals for the Ottawa Senators hockey club was no where near as rewarding as recruiting. Changing someone's life is a great feeling and now it is even MORE rewarding as I get to help people move into or move to better places within the Recruiting industry as our niche is Recruiting for Recruiters.
Although the emotional roller coaster of recruiting offers you the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, maybe within hours of each other, the highs of being to help people outweighs everything else.
Thank you for creating another high today by posting Adam's and more importantly your story.

n there and defend your decision to be a headhunter!

Al - That's an excellent read and a message that I think my peer group especially often forgets. Thank you.
Pam and Raphael - You make an excellent point. I've never considered temping as a way of understanding the candidate experience so that is something I will definitely look into.
Amy - I got talking to a headhunter at an event I attended a couple years ago and I instantly had a million questions for her so I went home and tried to learn as much as I could. I guess I'm drawn to the unpredictable nature of the job and that you have to be smart and good with people to be able to deliver results. I like the idea of being the only one in charge of my success. Let me know when I start sounding too starry-eyed ;)
PS - Loved your appearance on the Animal Show!
le of days for them:
1. They told me they had no other recruiters working on the opportunity (I found out they did and questioned them and they said it was an internal - I questioned my sources and it wasn't!) - this is enough for me to instantly dismiss them. Lying to me just the once is enough (and they did it twice) but just to be sure . . . they
2. Couldn't give me a coherent brief
3. Were unable to provide me with a list of candidates they had seen or who had been contacted by themselves/other recruiters already.
4. Did not give me feedback when I asked for it despite wanting CVs 'immediately'.
I only took the role on on the trail basis - despite my better instincts - because an old friend/colleague had introduced me to them. After two days I have told them I do not want to work with them. I am expecting £2K for my work so I am not out of pocket. Get real and qualify your clients as hard as you would qualify your candidates guys. It ain't tough to weed out the bad ones!
