Changing jobs a couple of times in the last 2 years has made me really look at myself and my belief structure in this field, refine this, perhaps even formulate one (or two). I’ve come to understand what I believe in, when it comes to Recruiting.
It’s not about just going to work, hiring people and going home. I think people over complicate things to (sometimes) justify their own existence, pad out their “personal brand”, push their agenda or product, or suck up to “Recruiting aficionados”. And please don’t get me started on all those “Social Media is the greatest” conversations!
I’ve been able to break this down to a few key ideals which I believe in when it comes to this profession and what I do.
So what is it?
- Recruitment is all about the conversation (medium is irrelevant)
- Everyone (YES EVERYONE) is hired to solve a business problem
- Fish where they are
- Sharing and learning is essential
