Recruiter Tips: Busting The Myth Around Retainers

Recruiter Tips: Busting The Myth Around Retainers

I can remember when I first got into the recruiting game hearing about special training sessions being run for ‘experienced perm consultants only’; or perhaps for those consultants considering a move into the Executive Search space.

Recruiter Tips: Managing Your Clients’ Expectations

Recruiter Tips: Managing Your Clients’ Expectations

I’m sure we all have a few “life lessons” that we have learned or picked up along the way that, for whatever reason, have made a particularly strong impression.

When I was in 1st grade I distinctly remember Mrs McIntyre telling us that it was rude to point at other people when you spoke to them.

Even in the last three weeks I’ve already found myself having a few “Carla and her coloured markers” flashbacks while speaking to a handful of clients and recruiters.

She was right. When it comes to dealing with our clients, as recruiters we can never ever assume.
