Recently I facilitated a session on “Recruitment Trends and Best Practices” for a large group of senior Recruitment and HR leaders from a large global technology company at their annual HR Leadership offsite in Chicago.

I love being a recruiter.
Seriously, I think it’s the best job in the world.Yet 80% of people who enter this industry, fail in the first 2 years, leave, and are never sighted again.And it’s true, it is tough being a recruiter. And I believe in the modern era it’s getting even harder. During the downturn it got even worse. We all worked harder and harder, and earned less and less.On top of that, our customers seem to resent us more than ever.
