    has anyone applied for roles as graduate recruitment consultants? I want to know what all the fuss is about because there are hundreds of graduate recruitment consultant training schemes..

    Ha ha, I always see them and wonder the same thing. I haven't applied to them as they often 'seem too good to be true'. I'm sure there are some genuine offers amongst the thousands that are clogging up my inbox, but its just not a career that interests me.

    'Graduate' Recruitment Consultant positions involve long days of cold-calling and being shown the door if you consistently fail to meet targets. The only reason the remuneration seems so high with those jobs is because you work ungodly hours and make the commission yourself.
