"I agree and I use a weekly planning and tracking form to keep a pulse on how many marketing calls/emails I accomplish each week, press releases/talent scouts I send out, new job orders received, sendouts, resume submittals on JOs, client visits…"

"Thanks Jerry.  I agree completely and think the issue may be a reluctance to market to new client base.  Balanced week even if it's not a balanced day!  "

"When I read the title here - my first thought was to ditch the "senior" recruiter mentality.  We're all recruiters - and if we're not doing interviews, introducing ourselves to new potential clients constantly and making…"

What to do when a senior recruiter has an off year?

This one's a real world scenario for a friend of mine who owns a recruiting business.  My advice was to return to basics and do a ratios/metrics "where are we now" to identify what's missing.  Good time of year to have a next year planning session too.Steve Finkel has some invaluable advice on using metrics to diagnose your desk. But first I recommended that they check in to see what's going on personally for that person that might be at play.  Any other thoughts?See More

A top rookie mistake is investing lots of time in a bad job order.  Does your office have an evaluation process to prevent you from this major time waster?1) Is.There.Urgency?  If it's a "as soon as possible", or "we would always hire one of those", or "it's in the budget" are NOT urgency indicators.  If they can clearly articulate that there is serious trouble if this is not hired in the next 8 weeks, or client deliverables will NOT be met without this person, or we will NOT hit our goals…See More

"I agree with 1 and 3, but number 2 isn't a deal breaker for me.  If it is direct hire, I will highly suggest they try contract to hire instead.  I don't get afraid of a company who has never paid a fee...I actually admire…"

"Bingo ... you Jerry, are absolutely correct.  How often have we been given job orders that the specs are impossible totally unrealistic. You have to ask ... Do they really want to use an outside recruiter?  "

"I like it!  Thanks Lauren.   I'll add just one thing I find important as well.  You list urgency (gotta have it!) as well as rapport/cooperation.  It's a must.    My third thing is - it must be a…"
