Recruiting: A career that changes lives

From wedding planners to real estate agents, many careers exist to help people navigate some of the most important milestones in life. Considering how important professional guidance can be throughout these major life events, it makes sense why every day thousands of professionals turn to recruiters to help them find their next great opportunity. Recruiting is a diverse and exciting pursuit that offers an array of challenges and outstanding rewards. It takes the right combination of passion, tenacity and initiative to enjoy the success recruiting can offer.

The Business of People

Recruiting is about connecting.

Recruiting is about people in every sense of the idea. If we’re not helping others achieve their goals, then we’re not achieving ours. Maybe you are connecting someone with an opportunity that will improve their life. Or maybe you’re helping an organization grow and succeed by connecting them with the talent they need to elevate their performance. People are what make the recruiting industry exciting. Each client and each candidate are unique, meaning each search presents its own incredible journey, and each successful placement stands as its own accomplishment.

The Pursuit of Excellence

Recruiting is about growth.

The most successful people will tell you that success is not about pursuing perfection but about pursuing excellence. Aristotle once said, “Excellence is not a single act; it’s a habit.” Jay-Z repurposed this idea for the modern age when he opined “Excellence is being able to perform at a high level over and over again. You can hit a half-court shot once. That’s just the luck of the draw. If you consistently do it…that’s excellence.” Recruiting embodies the pursuit of excellence. It takes constant assessment of one’s process to continue to succeed, and it is that pursuit that makes recruiting a career that is continuously exciting and rewarding.

The Reciprocity of Victory

Recruiting is about winning.

No one wins unless everyone wins. Recruiting is unique in that it takes the success of three parties to facilitate a productive outcome. Each party (you, the recruiter; the organization, i.e. the client; and the jobseeker, i.e. the candidate) is focused on the same goal:  a profitable connection between professional and company. A recruiter must have the drive and ability to bring people together to ensure that everyone leaves the process satisfied. Recruiting is special because it strives to deliver what is best for everyone involved. When it succeeds, everyone wins.
