People Often Ask Me Why

People often ask the question, “Why be in the recruiting business?” One of the most dominant reasons is that it pays really well … if you’re good at it. But to be good at it, you need to learn it and then put what you’ve learned into practice. AND you need to give yourself a “permission slip” to be successful at it. As I told a new trainee once, “if you have the determination to succeed, we can teach you the how-to’s.” She went on to make her first placement within two weeks and subsequently, because of her determination, bought a brand new red BMW convertible within six months of starting her career as a recruiter. She kept a picture of that car on her desk to see her vision of it every day. Wow! I was so proud of her. We still keep in touch to this day.

  1. Unlimited income (top-notch recruiters often make a six-figure income)
  2. Helping others (clients & candidates) and (refer to reason #1) getting paid big bucks to do it
  3. No more jumping through corporate “hoops”
  4. Be your own boss
  5. Can be done from anywhere with an internet connection & phone
  6. Constant changes keep you from becoming stagnant in this profession
  7. Being well respected for the job you do
  8. Creating your own destiny; not someone else’s
  9. Changing the lives of your candidates by getting them better jobs has a ripple effect on their families often by elevating their lifestyle
  10. As long as you work for yourself, you won’t be downsized like too many “employees” have been

More to come … stay tuned … and have a blessed day,
