Don't run with scissors

I think the conversation I had with Bill is not showing up so this is what he had to say:

"To start with a large firm known for it's training or with a smaller firm with the same. I think the biggest mistake a new recruiter can make is not learning the basics of the business and understanding what makes a placement. Its still about a good job order, a motivated super star candidate, a process that works and a niche that is viable."

I agree with Epihet - not running with scissors is a great start;) After laying down the scissors, I'd advise the new recruiter to adopt a mentor and glue themselves to their mentor. They must choose their mentor wisely, because they will become a "mini me". They should ask credible, top-producing, ethical, respected recruiters who they think is tops in the biz, then find a way to be mentored by them? How? Welp - their ability to creatively think of their own way to gain that mentor will be an indication of how good they'll be in recruiting!

maybe you should not spend your commission until the check clears.
