I've been in this business for about 1 yr, but I still consider myself a rookie. I work remotely and run a full desk. Because of my solitude, I dont think my development has been as fast as I had hoped. I'm really going to pour the steam on from hear on out. the next 3 months will be make or break for me. I thought that keeping a diary and sharing thoughts and ideas here, might be something that will help me grow and learn more quickly. I've never blogged before and dont know if anyone even sees this.

My main challenge right now is generating job orders. Cant make placements without job orders.
I will be writing about my trials and tribulations in this process. The way I do this is with Cold MPC calls to potential clients. I had some reluctance to this since the start, but have managed to work around it and have been making the calls. By the end of this week, my goal is to be routinely making 20 of these calls a day. I will keep you posted as to my progress.

feel free to chime in with any advice or comments. That the main reason I am doing this.

Hi Mark,

I think we're in the same position with you, I've been in the industry for a year now, and I'm working from home which hampers my progress ... One more thing - I'm an outsourced recruiter working from the far-away Europe and not even a native English speaker :-) So every day have to learn not only recruiting procedures but real language and stuff like that... Hope I'm not bad at this :-) I'm new to blogs as well, and find them a great source to improve both my recruiting knowledge and the language as well...

Feel free to contact me at nataliya_voronina@yahoo.com (IM) and I'll share some ideas with you re finding new clients.

I am with you. One year into recruiting and I have a hard time generating searches. I mainly work the California area and make 50 calls a day. I can make 50-250 calls and get one call back, where an associate of mine works another state and makes 6 calls and gets 2 calls back. AHHHH! I will love to follow your blog! Thank you for sharing!

Hey Mark, keep in it! Have you ever considered outsourcing your sales? ;-)
