The 5 Top Don'ts for Recruiters

 

·         Don’t over prepare…
‘Research’ can sometimes be another word for procrastination. Get the key facts you require to make the call... & Make the Call…
 
·         Don’t cut corners…
When things are going well it’s generally because you are being thorough… when things get busy, don’t start cutting corners and not asking the crucial questions, it’s what makes us professionals…
 
·         Don’t believe your own press…
Strive to better yourself every quarter… beat your best… don’t get complacent because you are doing well… get better…
 
·         Don’t belittle the new guy…
Great recruiters strive to be respected by their team, not feared…
 
·         Don’t make decisions…
When we get a little more experienced we tend to start making decisions based on intangible information. Stick to the facts and don’t write off a job or a candidate because it they don’t ‘sound’ right  

 

Have you..., Always..., Never...

'Have you..., Always..., Never...'

Just so we are absolutely clear - you cannot learn how to be a recruitment consultant by reading this handbook – that would be like saying you could learn how to be a behavioral psychologist by watching big brother - I don’t think so.

However used alongside ‘The 4/13/65 Recruitment Planner’, this handbook will prove invaluable for keeping you performing at your very best.

Use the handbook wisely and she will help you make money and be the best recruiter you can be.
The  'Have you, Always, Never...' is about being able to re-fire your memory cells to ensure when you perform a particular task you remember all the little things that make the task more dollar productive and you get the most out of your time spent doing it. A memory jogger, if you like, specifically designed for the recruitment industry.
It doesn’t take hours of preparation to use and it can be used over and over again.
 
It is not for constant use 24 hours a day 365 days a year, It’s designed to be used for a week or two once every quarter, getting you back into the good habits you already know but for whatever reason have chosen to push to one side.
 
So simple to use, when you are about to perform a task, a client visit or an interview
Look up the section in the hand book and read the few relevant pages and guess what tips you will find…
 
‘Have you’ – Have you done everything you needed to do to prepare for the task ahead. It’s not about over preparation but it is about being ready. This section gives you a few pointers to remind you of the information or the preparation you need to do before you start the task.
 
‘Always’ & ‘Never’ - Pretty self explanatory really, these separate sections talk about the absolute Do’s & Don’ts of each particular task.
 
If used correctly the 'Have you, Always, Never...' recruitment handbook can help you get to and remain at the top of your game.
