Culling of the Headhunters
You think you have it bad as a job seeker? Executive recruiters are really having a bad year to the point of closing their doors!
However, I pose this question to your brains. “Why do good companies need recruiters in this market?” Because the average tenure for executives is now 18-36 months. Message to company executives: The pendulum swings both ways….Do you want recruiter’s finding that person for you, or from you?
A good recruiter partners with growing and progressive companies. A good recruiter does not chase transactions. Good recruiters are constantly building new relationships with growing organizations. It’s the ONLY way to make themselves recession proof.
History does have a way of repeating itself. Hence, the culling of the herd of recruiters happens every 5-7 years. Remember the last fallout of 2002-2003?
Take heed: “History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.”
