1. If you like talking to people this is the right job for you.
2. Every time you are working with a new client or a new industry so you are learning something new. Earlier I used to work for only heavy industry, so I got a good knowledge of it.
3. Every day you learn new terms, meet different clients so it’s a good experience of people also.
4. The work is not very hectic but fun for people who like to talk a lot. This is something that we all want sometime somewhere.
5. One who wants to learn about different domains of the industries can join this as I said before.
What are some of the negatives that you would want someone to be aware of when considering a career in your Profession?
1. Here you are dealing with the human mind which is completely unpredictable. So sometimes it’s difficult to understand when the candidate is backing out.
2. If the candidate backs out or does not show up, then we became bad. All of our efforts also gets nullified and we don’t earn any money.
3. Patience is very important because if I am impatient, I will not be able to tackle the client or the candidate.
4. People sometimes talk in a very rude or bad tone. If you are in recruiting business you have to keep your anger aside and work. You will talk to all kinds of people – good, bad, decent, short-tempered, etc.
5. You have to be a good listener because when a client gives their requirement or candidate talks about theirs if you miss out on something you could create a big blunder. There should be no room for error.
