Why I Love Recruiting

Started this discussion. Last reply by Zachary Sines Feb 29, 2012. 9 Replies

Hmmm.  A better way to title this would be why I hate recruiting.  Yes, I said hate recruiting.  I have never been fond of something that has its ups and downs so drastically it makes me want either…Continue

"Well, a little bit of both.  Word of mouth mainly, but Meetup.com promotes events on their site.  We also promoted it via TRC's social media, but the following there isn't the core audience.  I also got a QR code for the…"

"Zachary,  thanks for posting!  Did you do any promotions or marketing for your group? Or was it all organic word of mouth?"

Networking for those who hate networking events...

How I look when entering some networking events...minus the car seat and hair.It's odd to think that a recruiter wouldn't want to be involved in networking events.  I never thought of myself, prior to going to college, as an extroverted individual...someone who can just walk in to a room of people and start a conversation.  I was always timid when approaching new people, but never so much to where I would avoid it.  I…See More

How I Say No to a Client

Is the customer always right?  Nope.  In fact, most of the time they are wrong.  So, why do sales staff continue to believe the customer is right?  This goes on at every recruiting company, and I see it most with either inexperienced sales staff (obvious) or sales staff that have come from different industries.  The problem usually is the fear that telling a client "no", that terrible two letter combination, will result in a bad relationship.  I have never, and will repeat the word NEVER, had a…See More

"I agree with you completely. As an agency recruiter I can tell you its a nightmare. I believe the lack of job qualification and poor business decision making to go after something really tortures recruiters. Lack of understanding technology, delay…"

Sorry, need to vent.

Posted on November 15, 2012 at 9:04am 39 Comments

Let me preface this with I have written a few blogs on here about why I both love and hate recruiting, as well as some good advice that has been on LinkedIn before. However, I had a bad couple of orders recently, more than likely due to the time of year, and just need to vent. I literally look like the guy pictured above right now.

Wow, I get frustrated sometimes. It isn't with my candidates as much, my office, or my…

My Job Search and How It Has Helped Me In Recruiting

Posted on August 9, 2012 at 9:15am 4 Comments

So, I left my last company recently and there were many reasons why. Poor management, poor decision making on deals, awful database for sourcing, no "A" orders on the board, and horrible orders to work on. It was an unexpected departure, but at the same time it was literally a blessing. I have never been happier leaving a job, and to be quite honest, I have come out of the whole thing on top. Bigger base salary, increase in responsibility, better commission plan, better management, older…
