The latest thinking, news and events from the world of Recruitment

What Makes An Exceptional Recruiter?


You know those chatty people? The one who goes beyond the polite pleasantries of “hello how are you” in the grocery line but actual has a conversation about one of the random stimuli that a grocery store is full of, from your outfit to the apples you’re buying? Yeah, that’s me. I am exceptionally chatty. I actually like conversations, unlike most of you who are just rushing from task to task. I like getting to know people and learning about their perspectives on their job, the world and sometimes just the band on my t-shirt. I may not always agree but I always learn something.

That’s why our companies make their learning and development budgets – so we can go have conversations and learn something in the context of (hopefully) smart people who can push us to test our beliefs and do something better than we’ve done before. After attending many of these recruiting conferences and meeting a lot of great people, I’ve had the opportunity over the last year to take my own ideas to the stage to talk about the principles I think more recruiters should know about. And with that, I’ve talked to some really smart people who have challenged and applied some of my ideas.
