The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Recruiting

The Kentucky Derby is known as the “most exciting two minutes in sports.” But it has nothing on recruiting. The recruiting game has plenty of the elements that make the Derby so riveting.

Speed wins the Derby - and speed wins placements. In an industry where second place doesn’t matter, recruiters have to work fast to deliver the best candidate first.

Some thoroughbreds are born to race. Some people are born to sell. And recruiters have to sell twice as hard to close client deals and convince top talent to take a chance at new opportunities.

Fancy Hats:
As a lady, you wouldn’t dare show up to the derby without the appropriate head gear. In recruiting, your reputation always precedes you, so making a good impression is imperative.

Eye on the Prize:
The derby has a blanket of roses, but recruiters have unlimited earning power. Sticking to a workflow and measuring metrics can help recruiters increase their revenue every year.

Does recruiting live up to derby-level excitement? Weigh-in in the comments below.
