Recruitment industry watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hello, I always like this industry but I have some questions about this work. Couldn't get the answers online so please help here

    I guess I also have to convince my clients to take my candidates? But how does that work especially as there are many competitors recruitment companies


    Recruitment is sales, and developing business with clients is often the most demanding part of the job, depending on your company and the industry you are recruiting into.

    Not only do you have to sell yourself and the job to the candidate, but you also need to sell the candidate and yourself to the client.

    Eventually, through a great deal of persistance and hard work you might eventually build up strong relationships with individual clients (and candidates, if you're recruiting contractors/temps), but even those relationships require a lot of work to maintain, and if you don't put the work in then your competitors will take them.
