  string(3322) "As a Recruiter, daily interaction with candidates and clients is paramount. People will never fail to shock, surprise and delight you and that’s why no two days are ever the same within the Recruitment industry.

We as recruiters need to ensure professionalism, effective communication and most importantly, display honesty and integrity at all times. From the first handshake with a candidate to the coveted call from a client to engage your services, the manner in which we hold ourselves is vital.

Similarly, when it comes to service delivery, relevant candidates and open communication is something we as an industry have to commit to when embarking upon a process with our clients. We have to be accountable.

During my first 3 months as a young rookie, I attended a meeting that a client agreed to because he had an urgent business need. When I arrived he showed me the ad response he had received and made some choice remarks about the applicants and then proceeded to deem Recruiters as “no better than a used car salesman”.

I was shocked.

When I decided to embark upon my career as a Recruitment Consultant, I did so because the idea of selling a person’s experience and personality and matching them to their dream job was extremely appealing.

Unfortunately as someone recently told me “anybody can set up a recruitment consultancy”. True, but if we are to follow that train of thought, anyone can set up any business. Our title is ‘Recruitment Consultant’ which means we are consultative. We listen and ask questions to further our understanding of a client’s desires and fulfil our candidate’s dreams.

Each profession encounters their fair share of frustrations and recruitment is no different. As many people do, we plan ahead and value our time. We want to meet as many people as possible and prove that we are masters of our craft and a reliable avenue when sourcing talent and finding that perfect job.

I am first and foremost a professional and my profession is to represent and showcase an individuals skills, capabilities and career ambitions. My goal is to match a candidate to an organisation and a position that fits the candidate’s skills and background. Ultimately I want to satisfy the needs of both the client and candidate.

My colleague recently wrote a blog about Passion Projects and if I ask myself what my passion is, the answer is simple: people are my passion. I am a Recruitment Consultant because quite simply I love talking to and meeting with people.

Why do I do what I do?  People.

This is a great question for you to ask yourself if you have reached a fork in the road of your working life. It will help you make critical decisions around your career if you’re unsure.

So, ask yourself: Why do you do what you do?
