Why Take a Call from a Recruiter…


Opportunities don’t go away, they just go to someone else. I talk to countless people and 99% of them tell me no and that’s okay, I’m driven to that 1% who say ‘maybe’. If you’re reading this, we’ve likely crossed paths in my efforts to find talent, you may have said no to me!

Keep in mind: children grow up, managers retire and companies are bought or sold. Changes happen quickly in our industry, and those with the best connections have the best opportunity. It always makes sense to take a call from someone like me, an industry recruiter. The positions I recruit on are almost always confidential. Establish a relationship with a recruiter and next step career opportunities will present themselves. It’s also the best way to leverage your financial package. Times are-a-changing and it’s time to connect with one another!
