What I believe makes me a successful recruiter and what helped my decision making when choosing a grad scheme.
Having the right mindset is paramount in recruitment. It sounds cliché but rejection is everywhere, especially when you first start out and so having a degree of tenacity is crucial. On top of that you have to have the necessary skills, namely the ability to research independently and communicate clearly, both orally and in writing. At Goodall Brazier, I was given the opportunity to develop my own market from scratch, a freedom that most companies would never afford to a graduate coming into their first job out of University. For this reason alone the offer would have been difficult to turn down, but it was the people in the office that really sealed it for me. The atmosphere was really unlike anywhere else I had interviewed. When you spend so much time in the office, the cultural fit is possibly the most important thing and I haven’t looked back since.
Why I chose to be in recruitment
Having left University I was looking for a career that could offer rapid development and significant financial return —I saw Executive Search as the best way of accomplishing both. After reading the advert I thought I had what it takes to be successful, the right attitude, skills, and competitive edge. The last thing I wanted in a job with such long hours was monotony. Here, the old adage that “no two days are the same” really is true. The environment is extremely fast paced and you are far too busy to ever be bored.
My advice for anyone wanting this opportunity.
Do some thorough research before starting. Talk to people in the industry and be prepared to routinely work 60 hour weeks. Recruitment is not for everyone, evidenced by the average career length of 6 months, however, if you do want to join the industry be prepared to work hard and handle setbacks. If you are persistent, success will inevitably follow.
