Dear Friends,

As we all know that for any recruiter the numbers/closer he/she make are the biggest drivers. Apart from the numbers what are other drivers/motivators for any recruiter which would keep him alive in the business.

Making and keeping commitments.  Say you're going to do something - and hold yourself to it.

I am one of those rare recruiters who's motivator is not numbers.  I enjoy recruiting because I enjoy connecting the dots & helping others. It is a rush when I do help someone get that job they desire.  I also love the relationship piece of it.  Working with managers & getting to know candidates is what keeps me going.  I love challenges also.  Tell me I can't do something, or it can't be done and I will find a way to get it done. 

So true Will...Having a purpose to help / assist the candidates to realise their potential is definitely a motivator :-).

But many a time the perceived sense of achievement ... reinforcing the confidence ... every time you get a closure is what propels the recruiter forward to explore the next challenge. :-)

Agree Will & Yogi. Meeting & helping new people, overcoming tight deadlines, testing our own metal to overcome any obstacle & meeting the organizational & personal goals are definitely the motivators for any recruiter to be in this field.

But as Yogi mentioned numbers are the highly perceived sense of achievement, higher the number, higher the success.
