Agency Recruiters: Before you go home today ask yourself these simple questions. The answers should determine whether you should feel good about peeling out of the office this afternoon.
Do you have a new candidate for your client today? Not a resume that looks good or the phone number of someone you heard “might” be looking. I’m talking about a qualified candidate who has heard about the job, feels they have the skills the client is looking for and wants to move ahead. THAT is what I mean by “new candidate.” Do you have one today? If not – then what exactly makes you think your work is done? It’s 5:00? Oh really………
Do you have your action plan ready for tomorrow? By this I mean – do you have specific people you plan to make presentations to tomorrow? Or are you just going to float into the office, grab a hot cup of joe and start cruising through Linkedin tomorrow…..hoping that someone new will appear out of thin air?
If you’ve answered NO to any of the three questions above – better call home and tell them you’ll be a while. You haven’t earned the privilege of calling it a day just yet……………
