I use to work for a firm in VA. We had training from 8am to 830 eavery day. Then we got on the phone and called from 830 to Noon Candidates we wanted to talk to.

We were then allowed to check and return messages. Eat lunch and then from 1230 to 4pm we would get back on the phones for more power calling.

At 4pm we had to plan our next day and write out all the people we needed to call tomorrow. I did make alot of placements doing that. When I have trouble makeing contacts I go back to this madness. Please share what works for you.

Call it madness or call it structure & discipline. If it works then why deviate from it? In today's electronic world it is very easy to be distracted with the Internet, email, social networks, etc.. Sure these all can serve a good purpose but in small dosages. Like many others I got caught up in building my online social networks, writing blogs, starting online user groups, etc. Yes, there is some value to these however, I have yet to see a payoff from my efforts.

At my company, we are getting "back to the basics" by implementing a more formal process to daily recruiting and how one works their desk. This includes "blocking time" each day to make recruiting calls and eliminating time wasters such as internet searches, conducting research, sending emails, and other administrative duties during "prime time" working hours.

It's back to the basics for me.
