Do you wake up in the morning dreading the day ahead? Are you feeling not just underpaid, but also undervalued and unfulfilled? Is that feeling of being stuck and burnt out just not going away?
If you answer is yes to any or all of these questions, it’s time to consider a different career path. I’ve gone from bartending to office jobs to being my own boss. There are now many career choices where you can break out on your own—but why recruiting?
As a recruiter, you not only get fair pay and financial stability. You can help others find work and develop their careers. Client companies benefit as well; you get to be a vital part of their onboarding and growth strategies. If that’s not empowerment, I don’t know what is!
Here are some other important reasons you should consider recruiting as a career:
It’s Easy to Get Started
You don’t need a degree, recruiting background, or to meet strict qualifications to get started. Many recruiters didn’t start out planning to enter the profession. I can relate and have met recruiting professionals in tech and other industries from a ton of different backgrounds. In my e-Course, “The Millionaire Recruiter”, I can show you how to communicate, connect job candidates with open positions, and use social media to build your business.
No Earnings Limit
In recruiting, you don’t have a salary cap. If you remain competitive, pay careful attention to detail, and have the right selling skills, it is a financially rewarding career. Work hard and get paid. There’s no burning yourself out just for a minuscule pay raise. The more candidates you place, the more financially rewarding your efforts will be, and you can live the life you want and set your own hours.
You’re Free to Work as You Please
Recruiting is not a field where you’re micromanaged. It can be so annoying to have the boss constantly over your shoulder, not even realizing when you’re doing a good job. As a technology recruiter, you can manage your daily tasks any way you want. Even adapt your daily workload to meet your needs. There are no managers to tell you how to work; your rapport with clients and your ability to match the right hires controls their trust.
Apply the Skills You Excel In
Traditional 9-to-5 jobs are unfulfilling. Sometimes you just don’t get to use the skills you are best at. As you learn to be a recruiter, you will see that skills you already possess can be put to good use. If you naturally work independently, have strong presentation skills, and are a great communicator, you have vast potential. At times, there is pressure, so you need to be able to manage that. But if you’re good at sales and negotiation, you can sell your services and agree to amazing commissions that give you financial freedom.
A career in recruitment supports a continuous expansion of knowledge. You may be a better salesperson and negotiator than you thought. And then there are the different types of companies, their cultures, and industry segments to learn about. This contributes to the variety you get from day to day; in fact, no two days are ever the same in recruiting. Keep learning, stay on your feet, and roll with the punches and everything you learn from “The Millionaire Recruiter” e-Course can lead to a rewarding career.
