Honest Inquiry

Sales trainers used to train you to pin down your prospect.

“Which do you prefer, the green one or the blue one?”

Getting pinned down is uncomfortable.  Many people who get pinned down are going to avoid communication with the source of the pinning in the future.  When networking for candidates it’s much better to inquire honestly making it easy for the person you’re asking to help you now or at any time that…

It's How You Use It

The tools we now have for recruiting are incredible vs what was available just 10 and 20 years ago.  The internet, email, job boards, networks, databases, analytics, and on and on….

But good tools are of minimal value on their own.  It’s how you use the tools that matters.  That’s both a skill thing and an effort thing.  Give the right guy a good set of tools and he’ll build a great house.  Give me the same tools and you’ll have a real mess.  Recruiters have the tools to greatly…

Hustle

Hustle makes the breaks called luck.  This was a favorite line of a high school coach I had and a line that always stuck with me.  This is not to say that you are just lucky if you hustle and good things happen.  It is to say that if you hustle good things happen and some people look at it as luck, but your hustle made things happen and put you in a position to succeed.
