There is lots of news these days of people being fired. It's not good. In fact, it's really not good at all but there is nothing more liberating as a third party recruiter when you get to fire a client. goes something like this.
: I can't work with you under these conditions. You don't give feedback, you make terrible offers and I'm firing you.
: what do you mean you are firing us, I pay you!
: Exactly, you're fired
Dedicated to my good friends Gary Fowler
and Chuck Pearson
who recently lost his battle. Both of these amazing recruiters taught me that firing clients is an important step in understanding really what it is and takes to be a great recruiter. Gary still does it all of the time.
