We all know that most successful recruiters are successful because of their attitude and work ethic. The training, the support, and the environment you work in need to be right to apply that work ethic and make it happen.
A challenge for me in my early days as a novice recruiter was tick-box training accompanied by a lack of day-to-day support and coaching. It’s a huge challenge for junior recruiters, where the value in the training is lost because it doesn’t then get reinforced at desk level.
I am a big believer in the combination of training and coaching.

You can’t do everything being a small business owner. It’s a constant balance between internal and external activity, short-term tactical decisions vs long-term planning.
