10 commandments of being a recruiter #3... It’s not where you are from but where you are going
Recruiters like sportsman, other professions and people in general go through a cycle of success. Sometimes we hit a period where for whatever reason it doesn’t work out. We stop making placements and we lose our way for a while. Forget it. Forget what doesn’t work and instead focus on what it looked like or felt like when you had success. Sure you should shake it up a little, try a new approach with candidates, or go hunting in a different pool, even stand up all day to give you that motion creates emotion feel, but focus on what good looks like.
A trite comment, I'm sure but we cannot undo the past but we can change our future.
