Quality not Quantity:
Over the years, online job boards have become a popular way to hire new candidates for companies in need.

Submitting only top-tier candidates will make us happier our client’s happier and ultimately more commissions in your pocket.

Understand the client:
Put yourself in the shoes of the employer. If you were them, what would you like to see in a candidate? Job descriptions, salary, and location are major factors but it goes way beyond how big their bonus will be. Immersing yourself in a companies history, future, and culture will help you land a huge placement. Putting your commission aside and stepping into the needs the company is the best advice we can give to a recruiter.
Odds are you’ve made the first contact with a potential candidate. You made the first move and got them on the phone. It is your job to make sure the candidate is well informed and kept in the loop. Good or bad news, the candidate should always be updated on their status. Just because they might not have landed a role, they deserve the time to be informed. You never know if you’ll contact that candidate in the future for another role.
