The biggest cause of placements going wrong, is people making assumptions.
Placing a candidate starts with building a relationship with that candidate and establishing ‘terms of engagement’, if you like. Usually, it is essential to develop a rapport and a tight co-operation to ensure the right match is made.
From a candidate point of view, working with a recruiter to find a new role should be painless. In fact it should make the process much smoother overall!
Most people who become recruiters do not last. There are many reasons for that. Poor hiring decisions and inadequate training being high on the list.
But there is another key reason why so few people actually last in the hurly-burly world of agency recruiting.
It’s a frigging hard job!
So I know that sometimes you question why you do it. There are times you hate what you do. There are days you go home feeling deflated, worn-out and frankly, useless.
