What happens to many recruiters once they master the art of contingency recruitment?
One of the more popular options is for them to leave their employer and start-up on their own.
They then replicate all of the habits that helped make them a competent agency recruiter – namely cold-calling companies looking for vacancies, cutting and pasting job descriptions onto job boards and canvassing-out candidates.
And so the market gets populated by yet another recruitment agency that’s as indistinguishable as all the others.
Alternatively, some get promoted into looking after a team and embark upon a new career of billing less and becoming at best, an average manager.
Whatever direction they take, they’re involved in a recruitment model that’s defined by regular cold calling and a success ratio of filling around 1 in 5 jobs – or more to the point, a failure rate of around 80%.
If you’re interested in getting off that particular roundabout, give me a call.
