THE RECRUITER CALLS...

The Recruiter Calls.....

The phone rings and you pick it up only to find it's another recruiter, maybe the fifth recruiter this week. Many sound the same...."I'm looking for a new client and I have all this stuff to sell." or "I have this "great" opportunity I want to pitch to you" You listen politely but are itching to get off the phone as quickly as possible because you've heard it a thousand times. Maybe you are not so polite and  just hang up. That's O.K., I don't blame you. 

 I work so hard to be different, wanting to provide value on each phone call. Value to me means getting to know you in a way that I can truly help. I know when I pick up the phone I'm disrupting someone's day, maybe at the most inopportune time. But I do want to help- it is why I do what I do.

 Well I'm off to make another phone call. If it is to you and I make you feel like I'm selling something for my gain- just hang up. It's my fault not yours. – Tom
