My Recruiting Philosophy

Recruiting Philosophy

  1. Customer Service… Continually improve your level of personal customer service. Internal and External customers share an equal importance, and how well you manage them will directly impact your level of success as a recruiter. No matter how much time and effort you put into improving your customer service, there is always more you can do; it is never ending.
  2. Professionalism… Treat people with respect and in a professional manner at all times. Only you hold the key to controlling other people’s perception of you. Treat your internal and external customers with the level of professionalism you would like to be treated. If you are having a bad day, show some restraint; take the time to calm down before you return a call or email. If time permits, take a walk; get your head back into the game. You would be surprised what wonders a short break can do.
  3. Relationship Development… A recruiter is nothing with out good relationships. Treat them like gold; protect them at all costs. You can continually improve your relationships by providing excellent customer service. It will be remembered and appreciated longer than you may think. Always treat people with the utmost professionalism. They will recognize you as a professional who can be trusted. Do little things to show your appreciation for any help or information you’ve received from them.
  4. Personal Growth…Continually seek knowledge and professional self improvement. The more knowledgeable you are, the more help you can provide to others. Experience and knowledge are about the only things you can call you own. So, in that manner, take care of your self, and continually improve your knowledge and experience.
