Recruiting is an interesting profession. Every single day is different. I speak to a wide variety of people, each consisting of their own skills and experiences. A recruiter’s job is to bounce from one activity to the next, balancing client and candidates’ needs. The diversity is limitless, and my day is never boring! And spoiler alert: it’s all worth it!
In just one hour, I listen to stories running the gamut, but I do not mind! Although time management is key in my business, I often force myself to slow down. When I’m on the phone, it’s not with “just a candidate.” I get to talk to dozens of human beings throughout the country. They all have rich histories, future career goals, and incredible stories. Dealing with so many different personalities can be challenging. But at the end of the day, I’m fortunate that I have the ability to build such a diverse network.
My days are packed with phone calls, emails, meetings, interview preps, and prospecting new clients. It is fast-paced and even draining at times, but I would not trade it for the world. I love what I do, and juggling all of these different responsibilities gets me closer to my passion: to find the best possible candidates out there for my clients.
A recruiter’s job is difficult but rewarding.
It helps that I work for an organization with over 35 years in the staffing industry that has built a solid reputation as a trusted partner with both clients and candidates. If you are a company who needs a little help, or a candidate looking for an opportunity, reach out to Johnson Search Group and have a great experience.
The next time you get a call from a recruiter, have a brief conversation with them – it could be life-changing.
