Recruitment - good days and bad days

Aaahhh it’s happened again – 23 years recruiting and clients still have the capacity to hit you where it really really hurts.  So you are working away on a contingency assignment,  the client has changed the profile twice but despite everything you have the final two candidates in for final round – they like both, both like the company and one of them will be offered the role.  This is a senior role and the fee is a big one.  You know what it’s like – the commission is spent and I think it’s in…See More

"I'm amazed at how few CEO's actually have long term relationships with recruiters.  I don't know what this say about our industry's CRM.  But we pose the question to veteran CEO's with whom we meet and often they…"

"Sounds like the new CEO has his own recruiting relationships.... I don't see where that's anyone's fault exactly.  Still sucks and like you said Jacqui at least you've got an ally in HR and other reqs to work on - However,…"

"That stinks, Jacqui.  I think you should call the CEO directly and compel him or her to take a meeting.  Don't be angry, just point out the benefits to you taking the search, the road map you've taken and how well you…"
