    Hi everyone,

    I finished university in july with a 2.2 in Accounting and Finance. I spent 4 months travelling Latin America and have recently started looking for jobs.

    2 Recruitment consultancies have got back to me recently to set up telephone interviews. (this is to work FOR the recruitment consultancies)

    I was wondering if anyone has any experience working for recruitment consultancies, whats it like? I think id quite enjoy that sort of work but at the same time alot of people say thats its very difficult, very competitive and tough and alot of people drop out after a year.

    Thanks for your help

    It's essentially a lot of cold calling to people who by-and-large hate you. If you're good at it you can make a decent amount of money, but it does have a tendency to burn people out.
