Create Your Career Vision Board ...

Waiting, wanting and willing to put up with all of the uncertainty and fear of not knowing what is coming around the corner is enough to make anyone wish they were not living in the now. We have a way of throwing ourselves off balance, waiting for the right moment to make a career move whether we know where we are going or not. Well, it’s okay to be afraid. When in doubt, it’s time to move on…

Life is full of changes. Whether you are expecting a child, moving into a new house,… Continue

Deal Maker or Deal Breaker, Which are you?

Everybody works hard but only a select few are known as great closers. Over the past 10 years my teams have placed 15,000 candidates into new jobs/positions with clients for fees over $500M.

- Closers close all the time, every chance they get

Are you Taking Care of Your Clients and Candidates?

The most important part of sales is going out into the field and getting new customers. In recruiting we call this marketing or business development. The next thing is to keep them once you get them to give you a try.

Think about the last time you had friends over for a get together. The next day you got a call from a friend who was there you to tell you what a good time they had. Didn't that make you feel good?

Why do Recruiters want to hear Objections from Clients and Candidates?

Did you know that over 60% of sales are made after the offer has been rejected 5 times? If you are a recruiter or an account manager then you need to make certain that you are hearing NO as it may happen 5 times before you get to a YES. It doesn't matter if you are asking for them to send you a resume or return a signed fee agreement. Unfortunately 75% of the recruiters and salespeople out there will give up after the first rejection. This explains why 20% of the team closes 80% of the… Continue
