paid 5500 on the final 10K billed.
This is based on a quick scan of Robb's reply.
Now - this can only happen when the recruiter is a "full desk" recruiter and filling only their own openings. Once there is an inner-office split (Job Order recruiter and Candidate Recruiter) each of them would receive "credit" for 1/2 of the fee. So if the placement was 15k, then the J.O. recruiter is credited with 6K and the Candidate Recruiter is credited with the other 6K.…
n why you should win most of the candidates that you recruit."
This statement negates its own premise, so it is patently incorrect, although I was able to discern the meaning by cogitating a little. One thing that I think is that if you make a statement in public, in print, on the Internet, you should try to get your grammar and syntax correct.
My humble opinion, only.…
unterproductive to getting where you want to go.
Courage should be first..what good is learning if what we learn is never applied? or only applied halfheartedly? apply it correctly or incorrectly, just keep moving and correct your course as you go..you'll be surprised at what comes back..
Confidence comes afterward..after you know that you know what you know. only by acting with courage can we develop confidence over time.
Discipline is the brother of courage.. make yourself move forward, regardless of how you feel that moment.
Motivation? that's easy - if you don't move forward, you'll die where you remain, eventually.
organization? that's easy too - just pick someone to call, and call them. and then pick another.. heck, pick five people in a row to call, and don't stop until you call them all. the outcome is irrelevant.. at this point, you are re - learning how to do something, and again, I think you'll shock yourself as to what comes back to you.
not trying to sound flip, but we as humans can really over complicate things..it's all mindset..technique is secondary.
remember Tom's golden rule: anything worth doing is worth doing badly until you get good at it.…
- they largely haven't changed and the world around them and importantly their clients have. As such in their current state they add questionable value to a client. I await the deluge of criticism from other readers for such a sweeping generalisation but the simple fact is that recruiters have to up their game and provide a service that a customer wants, values and can't do (better) themselves.
They "want" is a given - companies will always need to hire. The "value" and "can't do (better) themselves" is where I believe the focus should be. I wish you luck with your journey, I've been through mine and had created something special!!
For anyone still reading and wanting to correct my stance on adding value to clients - please don't tell me you do - get your clients to tell me (or even better prospective clients!)…
ng the multitude of resources, many for free that will guide them in producing a quality cover letter is beyond comprehension. I think back to the mid 80's when I was first job hunting and found a couple of resources/mentors before the "age of technology" and produced a great cover letter. The cover letter needs to peak my interest to "read more"..it is as they say the Sizzle before the steak ( resume)..Bill is correct as well, candidates typically fail to make the connection in short succinct bullet points as how they will be a success based on the job requirements..
Here's to reading more lousy cover letters!! BTW- Here's to wishing everyone in the RecruiterSphere a Happy and Healthy Christmas Season and to a fruitful and productive 2012 to all!!!
rson or over the phone, you have the right attitude and tech knowledge that shows you want to grow and continue to be productive. But appearance does make a difference, especially that first impression. You are right about a 25 year old who does not dress or act appropriately, they will not get a job either, but what I'm saying is that if you are over 50 or a boomer looking for job, you already have a age impression that you have to get past to begin with. If you come to an interview and look tired, run down, slow and not able to keep up, all you are doing is reassuring the hiring manager that age does make a difference. I'm not saying it's fair, and it doesn't apply to everyone, but it is reality. I see it every day and it makes me furious. …
I absolutely believe agency recruiters bring value to the table. I spent 14 years in an agency myself. The opportunity here is for the recruiters who show more of their work to the client in an effort to be a true partner, and also setting the correct expectations up front. You will win the business of these Talent Leaders in the long run with that approach.
Unfortunately, not all agency recruiters work this way. In fact, my new company is currently in the process of hiring and I get unsolicited resumes/candidates from agency recruiters at least 3 times per week. Each of the emails go on about how great the candidate is, yet I've never talked to this recruiter before. Why should I trust their opinion? Those are the types of instances that give the wrong impression about recruiters.
I appreciate everyone's opinions, and reading the article. Have a great day........JW…
