Recruiters know how to use the phone since they spend so much time calling clients and candidates yet many are ineffective in their ability to set appointments or present candidates. I still hear recruiters telling me all the time about how they submitted a candidate via email vs doing a call-and-present. Technology is a great asset to us but we need to get off email and do more F2F, especially in this market, and the best way to get there is to improve your phone skills.

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.

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

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?
If you call your client the day after you start working on… Continue

Did you know that over 60% of sales are made after the offer has been rejected 5 times?
